The Kilsyth Cobra Under 14-1 Boys have wrapped up their 2018 Australian Club Championships campaign with 12th place finish in the nation. 

 

The Cobras came agonisingly close to securing a top-eight finish, but a thrilling mid-week loss to eventual sixth-placed Warrnambool proved costly, dropping Kilsyth out of quarter final contention. The tight loss to Warrnambool was one of four single-digit defeats that the Cobras suffered at the Championships, with coach Brad Hauer and co. fighting valiantly all week long against the odds.

 

Securing a wildcard bid as the host association, the Cobras entered the tournament with low expectations, having competed in Victorian Championship Reserve (VC Reserve) during the 2018 MUVJBL season. But despite their relative inexperience, missing three players for the duration of the tournament and facing with severe size disadvantage for the entirely of the championships, the Cobras hung tough throughout, displaying an unmatched grit and toughness which ultimately led to a top-twelve finish in the nation.
