AUSTRALIA BOSSED BARBADOS
Hot favourites Australia took to the court against a sprightly Bajan side,
racing out to a 17-2 lead by quarter time.
It looked as though the pressure was too much for Barbados as they couldn't
hold themselves together against the title holders.
Right from the first centre pass there seemed like there was no structure
to their game. The easy pass option went unnoticed as they tried to force the
long ball which was easily picked up by the Australians.
The Bajans shooting wasn't on form either with a 54% accuracy average for
the game, meaning precious chances were missed. The short shots were snatched by
Australia giving them more opportunities to extend their lead.
Now Australia move on to the semi finals, but are they prepared?
"We're defiantly ready." Replied Carol Byers, Australia's head coach, "I'm
really happy with how they've gone this week and now its time- we really need to
work hard tomorrow."
