Cougars Back in Winning Form

Cougars back in winning form

In Round 14 of the Queensland Champions Cup (QCC) the Kedron-Wavell Services Club Cougars have dominated in their latest match, securing a 71:44 victory against the Logan Wildcats on Saturday, June 15.

The match was off to a roaring start with the Cougars hitting the court hard and securing a 9-point lead by the end of the first quarter.

For the second quarter, the Wildcats fought back and strengthened their defence in the hope of closing the wide-score margin.

However, the Cougars remained focused and with fluid teamwork and strong attack they made multiple intercepts ultimately strengthening their lead and winning the game.

Cougars Captain Kate Bullen said this week’s win was a much needed confidence boost.

“It was nice to come away with a win after a pretty shocking game last week. When you’re winning, you’re more confident and with one game to go in the round, every game counts, “ said Bullen.

The next round of the QCC sees the Cougars take on the Golden South Jaguars at the State Netball Centre on Saturday, 22 June at 7pm.

In the Mission Queensland State Netball League (MQSNL), the Kedron Wavell Services Club Cougars continue to dominate the competition, defeating the Golden South Jaguars 64:33 at the State Netball Centre on Saturday, 15 June.

After a tough first quarter against the Jaguars, the Cougars kicked into gear and broke ahead for a strong lead.

Cougars Captain Hayley Gordon said the weak first quarter was reflective of their warm-up and forced the team to refocus.

“After that first quarter we were taught a few lessons. Having a big hit out against some good competition towards the end of our season, especially coming up to finals, has been good preparation,” said Gordon.

The standout player of the match was Goal Keeper Remi Kama who played in the second half of the match and gave the team some much-needed defence.

With the MQSNL Cougars on a winning streak in the competition, they won’t be changing their training with the looming finals just around the corner.

“What we’ve been doing has kept us in good stead so I don’t think we’ll change much. We don’t have a game plan as such, we just go hard which is what we do so I don’t think anything will change,” said Gordon.

The elimination finals of the MQSNL begin next week with games starting from 5:30pm at the State Netball Centre on Saturday, June 22.
