A fantastic start to the East Region League saw Omega 1 win their first fixture, 45 – 33. Although a very nervous and tense start for the Omega Team, which resulted in a draw of 11-11 at the end of the first quarter, they found their feet thereafter, taking a 3 goal lead by half time.
The whole team played with great determination, fantastic team effort and experienced ball control, extending their lead by 8 goals by the end of the 3rd quarter. Co-Jags fought back and closed the lead, but Omega was not ready to concede the game. The entire team began defending the ball all down the court, resulting in interceptions being picked up to turn the game around and the shooters converting the turnarounds into goals each time.
An exciting game with matched game play and skill levels displayed by both teams. The game could have gone either way, but Omega dug deep, sustaining and increasing their lead in the final quarter.
