The third game of the day at the 2019 Women’s U25 World Championship, in Suphanburi, Thailand, saw the Australia Devils line up against Turkey.
Both teams were slow to get going, but it was Australia who immersed the stronger, winning the quarter 11-0. Turkey found their shooting touch in the second, but the Devils had already found their rhythm, and took a 19 point lead into the half-time break. That advantage proved too much for the Turkish team to come back from and with the scoring distributed throughout the team, Australia notched up their second win of the competition, 53-24.
Australia’s Taishar Ovens, who had a continuously high work rate throughout for her team, said, “It was a good game, we know that there is still stuff we need to work on like our defence, but we are working on it and we are getting better each game and communicating more. We are just having fun out here and doing our best.”
