Frost a Port City scoring machine
BASKETBALL: Amanda Frost stepped up for Gladstone Port City Power Central Apartment Group Breakers to score 28 points during the heart breaking 79-60 loss to Mackay Meteorettes.
The home team made the vocal supporters proud by pushing the opposition to be within four points during the third quarter.
The Meteorettes kept their composure to rebuild the lead in the fourth quarter to win.
Port City Power coach Ray Cooper praised his team's performance.
"I felt we did a pretty good job and a great effort,” Cooper said.
Mackay looked to run away with the game but Port City came back hard in the third and fourth quarter to push their opponents and get back into the game.
Port City worked on defence and contained their attack to limit scoring opportunities.
Milomilo Nanai put a scare into the Port City Power camp, going down with an ankle injury in the dying minutes of the game, but it turned out to nothing serious.
Briana Bailey also starred for Port City Power with a strong defensive effort and netted 10 points.
Import Jennifer Mathurin, who will be out for up to a year, was missed by the team.
"Her (Mathurin) presence was missed during the game because of her communication, hard work and scoring ability,” Cooper said.
"She tore her achilles tendon and had surgery on Monday and will have about a year off.”
This week Port City Power plays away against Rockhampton Cyclones.
