Laura from Allora has top game
ALLORA goal keeper Laura Geitz was praised by Australian Diamonds coach Norma Plummer for turning her team’s fortunes around in a 45-43 victory over England yesterday.
The win also secured the Diamonds a 2-1 series win.
Geitz came on in the final quarter with Australia behind by six goals.
The Diamonds jumped out of the blocks in the final quarter to score the first four goals and hold England scoreless for the first four minutes. Geitz shut down Jo Harten, while Renae Hallinan lifted a notch in wing defence creating great drive out of defence as the pressure mounted on the England attack. With six minutes remaining the scores were level at 39-39.
Plummer said Geitz turned it around and did an excellent job and in the last quarter restricted Harten to three goals from six attempts.
Diamonds goal shooter Kate Beveridge was player of the match.
