MATCH REPORT: AUSTRALIA v MALAWI

The third semi-final spot has been filled by Australia after they valiantly pushed through to defeat Malawi 58 to 44 in the third Quarter Final today.

Another top team to experience a tough win in the finals stages of the competition, Australia looked in control for the majority of the game, trying new combinations to find a rhythm, but at times they struggled to ebb the flow of Malawis attacking line-up. Both shooters to take the court, Catherine Cox and Caitlin Bassett, were invaluable to their team – this was Caitlin’s fourth game shooting at 100%. Laura Geitz, who came on in the last quarter, added some spark into the Australian backline, pulling off some amazing intercepts and turning the ball over for her team when it mattered most, stemming the Malawi comeback.

Malawi pulled out an inspired response in the last quarter, showing commitment and flair, especially on attack. Goal Attack Sindi Simtowe was a pleasure to watch as the angles and cuts she created in the shooting circle were second to none. Her combination with Mwayi Kumwenda was dazzling; as the high arching pass by Simtowe was pulled in by Kumwenda who hung in the air for what seemed like an eternity.
