After losing to Adelaide Lightning at home two weeks ago, you knew the Jayco Rangers were going to be looking for revenge on Saturday night. But nothing could have prepared the Lightning for the onslaught a pumped up Rangers had in store for them, blowing Adelaide out in an 85-58 win.
From the jump the Jayco Rangers came out with ferocity as they pushed out to a 24-12 lead in the first and never looked back, at one point climbing out to a 31 point lead.
Soon to be sister-in-laws Steph Cumming & Sara Blicavs dominated the game offensively in a fiery 42-point joint performance. Shooting 59% from the field, 87% from the line and combining for 7 steals, Adelaide just had no answer for Blicavs/Cumming and a starchy Rangers defence.
The win further ensures that the Jayco Rangers will stay on top of the ladder for another week in a tight race for the finals, with just four losses separating 1st and 6th.
Only six more games left Rangers fans! Can the Jayco Rangers hold on to top spot and secure home court advantage for the finals? We need you cheering us on to make sure!!!
