WELL PLAYED: Logan Thunder's Emma Langford

DESPITE a game high 22-points from in-form forward Emma Langford, the BDS Logan Thunder were unable to overcome a dominate performance from the Alcohol Think Again West Coast Waves on Friday night, going down 56-71 at Logan Metro.

 

After a relatively quiet game last week against reigning Champions Dandenong Rangers, the 23-year-old workhorse was back to her blistering best on both ends of the court, but her performance wasn't enough to overcome an on song West Coast outfit.

 

After a scrappy start from the tip off, the Waves picked up the first points with an early three-point play which soon lead to an early five-point lead, before Natalie Taylor hit back after converting from the three point line to get the home side on the scoreboard.

The Thunder struggled to find any more points in the first four minutes, until Langford kicked into gear with four consecutive field goals.

 

Coach Jason Chainey was vocal from the sideline, but his side struggled to convert effort into points while the visitors kept them at bay.

Although the first quarter saw six lead changes, finishing at 17 points apiece, the Waves gained momentum picking up the first six points in the second quarter.

 

The Waves dominated the third quarter, extending their lead to 12 points at the third break (39-51).

 

The fourth quarter saw much of the same, with the game appearing to be well and truly over with five minutes left on the clock and the Waves up by 16 points, the score 48-64.

The Waves secured their second win of the season, proving too strong for Thunder, finishing up at 56-71.

 

Antonia Edmondson and Lisa Wallbutton were the standout performers for the West Coast visitors scoring 37 points between them.

 

Logan will be hoping to break their three-game losing streak when they meet Bulleen at home next Friday night (7.30pm AEDST).

 

Final score: West Coast Waves 71 (Lisa Wallbutton 19, Antonia Edmondson 18, Natalie Burton 8) defeat BDS Logan Thunder 56 (Emma Langford 22, Laurie Koehn and Natalie Taylor 13 each).
