Kalani Purcell snares 13 steals!

Thirteen steals in one game would be quite an accomplishment for any team but thirteen by a single player could be something of a Queensland State League (QSL) record.

Kalani Purcell posted 21 points, 6 assists and that remarkable number of steals as Southern District Spartans defeated Sunshine Coast Phoenix 107-63 on Saturday.

Sister Natalie Taylor scored all her 15 points (5/8 3PG) from beyond the arc as the Spartans maintain second place on the QSL ladder with an 8-1 record.

Top of the pile are Chevannah Paalvast and Logan Thunder who have won nine games on the bounce.

Paalvast scored 9 points in Thunder’s 97-50 win at USC Rip City and 12 points as the Thunder rolled over Toowoomba 107-29.

It was a mixed weekend for RedCity Roar who beat South West Metro Pirates 60-38 but then went down in a heap against Brisbane Capitals losing 96-55.

Ashleigh Karaitiana filled the stats line against the Pirates amassing 19 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 steals and 2 blocks.

The game against the Capitals was a contest to decide outright third place on the QSL League table. Karaitiana came up with 9 points and 6 rebounds but it was a disappointing performance from the Roar who now have a 6-3 record.
