We were down in the sand dunes without a coach. The desert seemed bleak. After quick drills. 2 teams. The Golden Scorpions, Louise Sally, Laurie, and Gill versus The sacred Scarabs in green, Nancy, Tulay, Shirley and Fie.
Sally started with the ball. Gilly was first to score. The Golden girls were on fire. Game 1 to the Scorpions, it’s not Pharaoh said Shirley, Sarita Tutankhamun appeared & joined the Greens. The treasure changed sides. Water was scarce, Sally saw a mirage. Quick water break. Laurie played Mummy to Mummy ruining Shirley’s game. Game 2 to the Scarabs. Tut Tut Sarita swopped sides. Game 3 a sting from the Scorpions tale.
Tonights Shooting star was Louise for beating her personal best. The Desert Storm award to Fierce Fie welcome to the team.
Coach Tina Turner’d up early to the Thunderdome. Shooting drills to start, followed by a 3 on 3 degrees defence game.
The 2 teams were. The 5 Proud Mary’s in Red, Lisa, Sarita, Andreea, Gill and Louise verses the 4 Acid Queens in Blue, Fed, Nancy, Sally, Laurie.
Lisa and Sally jostled at the Jump. The first 2 baskets to red. Then de Do run run de Do Run Run went the Blues. The Proud Mary’s kept on rolling but the Acid Queens kept on Scoring. Easy Easy listening said Fedi, STFU whistled Tina as she lost her Nut bush! ‘We don’t need another hero! Use your golden eye, Separate & make space’.
Sally ‘mountain high’ knocked Louise off the no.1 spot, with her ankle ‘river deep strain’. Full of 2nd hand emotion Louise sat out. Red win.
Game 2. Louise returned. Fedi screeched to her backing singers ‘who’s running for money!’ Laurie Scored. Gill held back. Nancy Scored! Coach Tina blasted at Lisa ‘Hit the back board’ She did! What’s love got to do with it! Boom! it was 8pm.
Simply the best! said the winning reds 2 games to 0.
