WINS KEEP COMING: Pistons have started the summer season well with a two point victory against Saints.

In Men's division 1 Pistons 66 d Saints '2' 64. The season opener saw last year's grand finalists play out a very similar result with Pistons winning by 2 points. The opening term had plenty of action and fine shooting with Pistons establishing a solid 11-point margin with the scores at 28 -17. Pistons and Saints traded baskets for much of the second quarter in a free-flowing term and at the main break Pistons led 45 -32.

Saints stepped up their defensive pressure in the third term and started to find range in offence with Saints winning the term 19 points to 6 and trailed by 5 at the last change. Pistons led 56 to 51.

In a dour last term as players tired and with both defences on top Pistons held out Saints to secure a 2-point victory. Pistons had many good players Jamar Scarvelis posted a game-high 20 points.

Kasper Muirhead played and shot well from the perimeter finishing with 17 points. Zac Bazzacco and Riley Bennett both played good outside games and both hit 12 points. Matt Bennett did a lot of the hard work in defence and on the boards.

Saints had a good spread of scorers, Stuart Fahey hit a top score of 18 points and distributed the ball well. Sam Ashmoore collected a good share of the boards and scored mainly from drives in his 17 point collect. Nick Baxter pushed the ball down the floor quickly and hit some good outside shots finishing with 14 points.

In Women's division 1 it was a low scoring defensive contest where both teams Saints and Magic had regular players missing.

Saints were able to hold on against Magic. The first quarter was the most productive of the game and the scores were locked away at 10 all. The second quarter was a low scoring affair and Saints led 16 -13 at half time.

The second half was marred by poor shooting, many turnovers by poor decision making but there were some really good defensive efforts. Saints lead 19 -15 at three quarter time. Saints hit an early three pointer and extended the lead to 7 points.

Saints didn't score for the last 9 and half minutes and Magic worked valiantly, but came up short by a point.

Saints were best served by Lucy Pearce who defended staunchly and hit 6 points. Lisa Knowles defended well, rebounded well and finished with 4 points. Elena Schild had her moments and top scored with 7 points. Isobelle Bishop chipped in with 5 points.

Goolwa's best was Ellen Silvestri who always look damaging and she top scored with 6 points. Abby Bricknell played well defensively, grabbed strong boards and scored 5 points. Jordan Tuesley played well and posted 5 points.
