Valkyries rallied from 11 points down to snatch a draw with Denmark, Narelle Humphries tying up the game with a bonus free throw in a thrilling Albany Basketball Association women’s A-grade game on Tuesday night. Denmark appeared on their way to a comfortable win in the round seven clash, as Emma Henderson dropped her third three-pointer of the game inside the final 10 minutes. But that 11-point lead quickly evaporated as Valkyries persisted with their outside shooting and got some shots to drop. Isabella De Giambattista, Indiana Weeden and Shanaya Weeden all hit long-range baskets for Valkyries who quickly had reduced the deficit to four points. Angelina De Giambattista fouled out of the game and Summer Stirling missed two shots at the line before another basket from outside the arc out of Isabella De Giambattista’s hands made it one point with 30 seconds to play. Isabella De Giambattista was everywhere, she caused a turnover with quick hands as Denmark tried to bring the ball back into offence and chased the loose ball. She tapped the ball back to Humphries who drove to the basket and was fouled with 0.7 seconds on the clock. Humphries missed the first two free throws but Denmark broke too early and referees awarded her a third shot. Not needing another chance Humphries hit the bonus shot to level scores at 32-all and Denmark couldn’t get a shot off from the inbound as the match finished in a draw. Valkyries had to muster two comebacks, one in the first half after Denmark skipped nine points ahead. Humphries helped turn the tide of the game for Valkyries, her six points chewing into the deficit and leaving Denmark only two points ahead at half-time. Angelina De Giambattista scored 10 points before fouling out and she received great support from Humphries (nine points) and Isabella De Giambattista (seven). Valkyries hit four of 21 long-range attempts, but their persistence paid off in the end. Henderson (nine), Danielle Carne (nine) and Rebecca Goodliffe (four) were vital for Denmark, who like their opponents, have now drawn two games this season. Meanwhile Barking Owls kept hold of top spot with a 21-point win over Raiders. Keely Berry scored 14 points and was well supported by Casey Gabriel (eight) as Owls notched a sixth win, 49-28. Dakota Bremner top scored for Raiders with 14 points. In the battle of the two Sonics teams, it was Sonics 2 that got bragging rights with a 12-point victory. Amber Nekel (14) and Aleesha Narkle (12) played big hands in their side getting across the line 52-40. Both Shianne Arthur (11) and Telikah Collins (12) were in double figures for Sonics 3 but they suffered a fourth loss of the season.
