score: Storm 65 Monarchs 63 (W) (4-2)
by | StormFan7
to our hotels there were two bail bonds places right down
the street. I thought we were going to need them at certain
Scowl (who just happened to be on our flight) pointed out
a Costco oops I mean Arco Arena to WNBAFanForever who also
came to the game.
didn't have our rooms ready so we sat in the bar and had a
beverage or three. Saw Elise and told her Eclairs message
(this was already posted).
Also, Trinity and I had a pillow fight in the hotel room and
know how when one team has 3 fouls and the other 6 the refs
will call 3 quick fouls to make it even? Well, these refs
saw the score and decided to make that even. There is no way
that we had as many offensive fouls as we were called for.
And Sacramento got away with A LOT. They are a whole team
of fish and the flop on both ends of the court.
With the fouls thing said, we got way too comfortable with
our lead and didn't play Storm ball. This is what has happened
to us in many games and cost us a few.
was shooting free throws at the end and the whole arena was
quiet as she shot the ball I yelled "MISS" as loud
as I could and she did. Everyone in our section turned around
and glared. I was quiet most of the game but from that point
on I wasn't.
With .9 seconds left we were up 65-63. As I took a photo of
the scoreboard my hand was shaking because I was so nervous
about that .9 seconds. Jenny was jumping up so much when Sac
called time out after that Lennox shot. It was really nice
to see the coaches get excited.
The Curse is over.
It is so hot in Sac that you need to leave your bunny-hug
I am so proud of this team for keeping their composure and
not letting Sacramentos runs get the best of them.
In the first half DeMya went Matrix on LJ and jumped over
her and almost kicked her in the head. No foul was called
but there sure should have been.
I can't wait to watch this game again because to me almost
all our defensive fouls had our players upright with their
hands up and a Sac player flopping. Can it be so?
Betty Lennox: As positive as some of the things she does are
she still has to work on all the negatives. She palmed the
ball many times and was called for it once or twice. And she
needs to stop lowering her shoulder because the refs are calling
it on her every time.
Kamila: The poor girl gets called for stupid stuff EVERY game.
She did not have 6 fouls.
Brilliant helped us win this game.
We went out to celebrate and the Grecos showed up. They said
they would be in Seattle sometime soon.
