Woo hoo Steel. Great for Saunders.
I love watching Fisher, except when she gets a mild case of the yips.KerrynParticipantApril 17, 2022 at 3:57 pmPost count: 228
I don’t think Mystics can use not having Falkner (not a current SF) and Stythe (only a TP) as an excuse to lose when Vui is a current SF squad member and have 3 SF’s (yes I’m counting MSB as she is very much at SF level despite her successive injuries) in the 3 defensive positions.
Once again Steel just did what Steel do best – play their own game and never gave up, and it is very much a full team effortIan HarkinModeratorApril 17, 2022 at 4:04 pmPost count: 13964

Great win by the Steel and even though I support them I didn’t see that one coming.
Even though the Steel defensive unit is undersized in comparison to some teams they do work together really well.
I’m not sure if the Steel shooters rotation was forced by player restriction or if it was for tactical reasons but it seemed to work well. Heffernan over the last two games has been a clutch shooter which is great to see, I thought she might have gone close to being MVP against the Pulse although she really needs to get her accuracy up.
Class game by Saunders, leading by example and well done on her 150th.mcleodParticipantApril 17, 2022 at 4:40 pmPost count: 1390
Steel treasured the ball. Mystics hmmmm!!!!.KwkiwiParticipantApril 17, 2022 at 5:11 pmPost count: 115
Love Saunders. She is so fit and amazing footspeed. Well done to the Steel. Fisher is really improving. Would be interesting to see how Nweke would cope in the SSN league. She got 11 rebounds in this game. Don’t feel she’s getting a pushed much in this league.
I wish sky sport would stop showing the coaches so much during the game. The coverage becomes very disjointed and doesn’t really add to the excitement of the game.BallerParticipantApril 18, 2022 at 5:10 pmPost count: 466

Where’s Mes? Covid?
I feel for this magic side, I feel like a full game of Eke and Mes together is what they really are longing for in the attack end.Ian HarkinModeratorApril 18, 2022 at 5:35 pmPost count: 13964

A competitive opening Q. Pulse with the edge, thanks largely to Kelly Jury at the back.Ian HarkinModeratorApril 18, 2022 at 6:06 pmPost count: 13964
1/2 time: Pulse 23-17
Ekenasio 5/9 (56%)

A stack of turnovers from both sides, but it’s just not there for Magic in attack today, unfortunately. Just 1 less attempt so far, but down by 6.
