Frankston Blues 90 def Nunawading Spectres 78

The Frankston Blues have ridden some hot outside shooting to a win in their opening match of the season, overcoming a spirited effort from Nunawading at home.

It was a tight game from the outset, with the score locked at 21-21 to close the first quarter.

Blues forward Darcee Garbin was looking for her shot from the first tip, which played a huge role in Frankston being able to pull ahead after the first term.

Garbin finished the game with 30 points, including six deep bombs, and was helped by the ever-reliable Tessa Lavey, who ended the game with 23 points and nine boards.

Spectres guard Izzy Wright did her best to push her side towards a comeback, tallying 23 points, however a cold shooting night from behind the arch (3-20 as a team), saw Nunawading finish round one without a W.
