The Kilsyth Lady Cobras will take aim at their third SEABL Grand Final appearance in the past four years when they play host to the Bendigo Braves in a home Preliminary Final on Saturday night.
The Lady Cobras earned themselves a home Preliminary Final with a resounding win over Nunawading in their Round 1 playoff game, and host the Braves at 7pm on Saturday night.
Bendigo won big at home over Geelong this past weekend to keep their season alive, moving their 2018 record to an impressive 21-1 in the process. The league’s hottest team all season long, the Braves possess one of the SEABL’s most explosive offences, led by the dominance of Kelly Wilson (14.8ppg/6.7rpg/12.0apg) and Nadeen Payne (22.8ppg/9.4rpg).
The Lady Cobras will be looking to exact some revenge over Bendigo, having lost their lone meeting earlier this season. But Sam Woosnam’s team has played some blistering basketball of late, setting the stage for an epic win-or-go-home encounter on Saturday night.
