Your Dandenong Jayco Rangers are into the WNBL Grand Final! Defeating Perth Lynx in Game 3 of the WNBL Semi Final series, we will now look ahead to a HUGE Game 1 this Saturday against Sydney Uni Flames.
In superb game of WNBL basketball, the Jayco Rangers took hold of the game early against the Lynx, up 41-29 in the first half. But you knew the Lynx would push back hard in the second, with MVP candidate Sami Whitcomb leading the charge, making Game 3 a nail-biter to the very end!
Both teams took control of the game’s momentum in the second half, with a Whitcomb steal-and-layup at the third quarter buzzer putting every Dandenong fan on the edge of their seat going into the final break.
But in the end the Jayco Rangers home court advantage was too strong for Perth, with fantastic team defence holding the Lynx to just 9 points in the final period, giving Dandenong the 81-63 Game 3 victory.
Stephanie Cumming, Amelia Todhunter and Jacinta Kennedy were unbelievable for the Jayco Rangers, with Cumming top-scoring with 22, Todhunter holding the league’s top scorer to just 20 pts on 36% shooting and Kennedy battling down low and providing Dandenong with veteran brilliance.
An amazing game played by two amazing teams, but only one can win; and it was your Dandenong Jayco Rangers!!!!
