"My teammates did a really good job of finding me open spots"
- Tre Nichols, Men's Player
The opposition showed determination in the second half. The Rangers came to the court with a lot more energy and a refined strategy in the second half of the game, but they simply could not keep up with the Chargers stampede.
With this victory, the Chargers now find themselves in third place on the ladder, trailing only behind Nunawading and Kilsyth.
Womens Game Vs Rangers
Chargers 104 - - - 74 Rangers
Set to play against a Top Four team, no one expected such an astounding performance from Hobart sitting in 11th place on the ladder. Underestimating the Chargers proved to be a big mistake however, with the girls claiming one of the biggest wins of the season.
"Having a dedicated point guard back in the lineup was a big help"
- Dwain Davie, Women's Coach
The Chargers outscored the Rangers in every quarter, had a higher free throw percentage and higher three-pointer percentage. It was a truly dominant performance from Hobart, which many attributed to the complete team roster.
Brittany Smart made an explosive return to the court, with 32 points, 6 total rebounds and 3 steals. The team also saw great results from Sharna Thompson with 25 points and 5/7 three pointers, Kathleen Scheer with 16 points, 9 total rebounds and six assists and Klara Wischer and Kylie McCauley with 10 points each.
The team has jumped into 10th place on the ladder now, and if they continue playing the way they did in this game, there's no doubt they'll make this year's finals.
