Fans of the Golden South Jaguars left Saturday night’s match disappointed as the team went down by 12 goals to the Suncoast Lynx at the University of Sunshine Coast.
The Jaguars could not match the determined Lynx, leaving goal after goal unanswered throughout the game.
Coach, Paula Stuart, had no excuses for her team’s poor performance. “The Suncoast Lynx played well that night. We didn’t,” she said.
“The team lacked the consistency that the Lynx had and it really showed during the match.”
Coach Stuart said that her team tried their hardest but a poor performance early in the match put them in a bad recovery position.
“We tried to turn the game around in the final quarter by making a few changes but given how far behind we were, it was like trying to put out a bushfire with an eyedropper.”
Coach Stuart said she was impressed by the performance of key Suncoast Lynx players.
“Stephanie Wood (GA) really ran circles around us during the game,” she said. “Laura Scherian (C) too put up a good fight and could definitely be seen as instrumental in our defeat.”
Coach Stuart said that the team would use the game as a lesson for their upcoming game against the Logan Wildcats on Tuesday, May 14 at Beenleigh Arena from 7pm.
“The only way we’re going to really improve is by learning how to iron out the kinks,” she said.
“By improving our individual performance, we’ll start to improve our overall performance as a team.
“As I’ve always said, you take care of the pennies and the pounds will take care of themselves.”
