Basketball-Aussies v France
As they stepped on the arena the crowd went silent, but as the referee blew the whistle you could hear the players scream “GET BACK! GET BACK” every time France got the ball. First opening points were by the captain Penny Taylor. As Cambage gets the rebound and into the net it goes. Good deference under the ring from Erin Philips. There goes an easy lay up and boom!, another one in the basket.
The Aussies were up, but France was coming back. The scores were now tied. The Opals were going hard on France and they were tripping a little bit. It was halftime and all the girls and the coaches were talking about the game plan. When the buzzer went they stepped on court there was even more tension than there was before.
There were 10 minutes left and the Opals were up. France just needed 2 more goals to tie with the Aussies. Now it is on! Nice passing from the Opals. There were 5 minutes left France can still come back. There is a opportunity for France and in goes the ball in the net. It was too late and the buzzer already went and it is a big win to the Opals. The final scores were 89-71
