Led by veteran coach Mary Waya, Alliance got off to a terrific start, and were 20-6 ahead at the end of the first quarter.

Coach Mary Waya had strong words with her team during the break, and they  came back more  strongly in the second quarter.  They were 37-10 ahead at halftime and they just got better and better.

Memory for Alliance, showed her class with some outstanding intercepts, and feisty goal attack  as she  kept  the goals flowing.  At the other end of the court, Gerald Tasaukadala goal defender made life difficult for Alliance  shooters, but she could not stand the heat.

Waya  said she had expected her side  to start well, and she was pleased with the performance from her girls.

“It was a very good match,” she said.
