WATCH: Frost runs hot despite another loss for Port City Power
BASKETBALL: If only the Gladstone Port City Power Central Apartment Group Breakers can play better for longer, then its record would be impressive.
Instead, on the back of a 100-66 loss to Brisbane Spartans, the Power has slumped to 1-5.
Many at Kev Broome Stadium thought the hosts would notch win number two after a resurgent patch that closed the team to within five points and with all momentum.
Caralie Wilson nailed a triple for Gladstone to make it 48-43 and the Power enjoyed a 7-2 run before it all came unstuck.
Amais Kirvan and Jessica McDowell-White combined for five points and a 10-point lead.
And when a defensive breakdown led to an easy drive to Ashley Taia, that was all she wrote as the visitors whisked away on a 29-3 run and a 72-46 lead at half-time.
If not for Amanda Frost, the scoreline would have been much uglier. She drove and cut her way to be the lead scorer for Port City Power.
But as the team player Frost is, she knows she and her team-mates can do more.
"The third quarter we came out really strong and the whole team has been having great practices for the whole week," she said.
"So we were ready to com
e out strong, but a couple of their players just kept going in and we couldn't get out of that groove for a second."
Spartans sprinted to a 10-0 lead and Frost said the team started flat before coach Ray Cooper called a time-out.
Frost opened the account and Milomilo Nanai's ankle-breaking drive brought the crowd to their feet.
Spartans led by 13 at the main break before Port City's comeback.
Frost admitted some passes were impossible to execute and that led to turnovers.
"They just had a long reach on us, but I'm sure this week we will be working on taking care of the ball and all the little things that went wrong in the game, we'll definitely work on this week," she said.
