Panthers 27 Flinders Flyers 9
FLINDERS found themselves struggling against the strong Panthers side, with centre Sarah Tinkler creating some great space across court and keeping possession throughout the first half.
Flinders made some changes to their team which picked them up and shooter Alicia Inglis gained some good goals.
Panthers, however, maintained their form and continued to score goal after goal.
With strong defence from Robyn Rogers and Alexia Mingo there was little Flinders could do and Panthers took an excellent win of 27–9.
