Cairns Dolphins & Marlins v Mackay 12/05/2312/5/23
A complete turnaround from the previous games. Two wins will always send the spectators home happy, especially in the Pink Round for Cancer research (cupcakes were great, thanks to Jackleys Bakery!)
For the Dolphins, a good Q1 saw a lead -by 1 point. Then at the half it was 10 points, at the end of Q3 it was still 10 points, but a 24-16 Q4 saw the final tally blow out to an 86 - 64 win. The starters played most of the game, think they had a point to prove. Shaneice 21 and 12 with 8 assists; Leichan with 20 and 12; Taylor with 16 and 16; Teyahna was everywhere for 14 points and 4 assists.
Then it was time for the Marlins to show what they could do, and this was a top game. Finished close, even though the Marlins had a 20 point lead at one stage, then the Meteors came back at them and dragged the final margin back to 7. Curt wound back the clock with 24 points including 7 of 9 from beyond the arc; Ky 30 and 8; Jonah 15; and Tad with 15 to go with a massive 11 assists.
