There was a palpable sense of anticipation amongst the large courtside contingent as the mighty Black Fish took to a dimly-lit Court 3 for their inaugural clash with traditional rivals Endo.
It soon became apparent that the newest team to ascend to the lofty heights of Marden E-grade would be no easybeats. Indeed, their twin towers dominated the boards against a Fish side that was fielding an uncharacteristically short and mobile team.
In the end, Rodgers (N)'s heroics were not quite enough to prevent a narrow 41-46 loss.
Despite the 0-2 start to the season, die-hard Fish supporters remain confident of a place in this season's finals series. Don't neglect to support the boys and revel in countless unnamed perks by purchasing your membership while stocks last!
