STOL-Grasshoppers DS1 advance to 2nd place

STOL-Grasshoppers DS1 have Saturday, after a big victory over Twente (98-56), advanced to the 2nd place in the 1st Division. It took the young Katwijk’s team some time to get started in the first period (18-12). In the second period, the visitors thought they could stop the home team with a zone defense, but that didn’t work well. STOL-Grasshoppers stayed patient until their shooters were in position. This resulted in 6 successful 3-pointers in a row, and a reassuring 48-23 at halftime.

In the second half, the team continued with full concentration and easily played out the match.

The team is now 2 points behind the competition leader Rotterdam, but have played 1 match less.

Scores Grasshoppers: Rianne Philippo 24 (8 3-pointers), Eline Kraaijenoord 13 (10 rebounds), Karin Kuijt 13, Corine Manuputty 12, Ingrid van der Plas 11 (17 rebounds), Kelli Valentine 11.
