Storm fired back with a great under-basket appearance and Bridport’s defense struggled to contain the young team leading to early fouling issues. This gave Storm the chance to take the lead in finishing the first quarter 23-22.

Evolution fought in the second quarter with tactical and well-converted offensive plays to regain the advantage.
