WELCOME back to Lynx HQ for another update.

This week the team was chasing some history, as we had a chance to tie and break the club record for consecutive wins.

To extend our streak to 10 and tie the record, the team first had to play the Dandenong Rangers at home on Thursday night.

In front of a vocal crowd of 1021, it looked in the first half like our streak was going to be snapped, as we trailed 27-40.

However, after half time the defensive energy picked up and on the back of six second half three-pointers from Sami Whitcomb we managed to pull out the game 78-73.

Again it was Courtney Williams and Sami who provided the bulk of the scoring punch with 27 and 21 points respectively.

Their scoring, along with a 22-13 victory on the offensive glass, proved crucial in the win.

Our second game of the week took us to Sydney to play the Flames on Saturday afternoon.

In this game the team flipped the script on recent performances, taking a lead of as much as 16 points in the first half.

In the second-half, Sydney came back at us with some strong shooting to trail by only one point in the final minutes.

However, on the back of some great defence and a pair of late Sami Whitcomb threes, we came away with the game, 84-79.

This week we are back at the Bendat Basketball Centre on Friday night to play the Adelaide Lightning.

We will be looking to extend our streak to 12 wins, in front of our growing home crowds.

See you there!
