It’s another big weekend ahead for the Workforcexs Kilsyth Cobras (8-6) and the Workforcexs Kilsyth Lady Cobras (9-6) as they take on Frankston in Frankston on Saturday night before returning home on Sunday to take on Bendigo.
The Workforcexs Lady Cobras split the results of last weekend’s game defeating Ballarat at home on Sunday by eight points after a disappointing 70-35 defeat by Nunawading on Saturday night.
After shooting at only 15.9% from the field against Nunawading, Sam Drescher (25pts, 20rbds & 4as) and Brittany Renton (21pts, 11rbds) came out on Sunday and together helped to defeat Ballarat.
This Saturday nights opponent the Frankston Lady Blues (9-6) went down to league leader Knox last Wednesday night by just seven points, Jessica Thompson (19pts, 10rbds) and Alana Bell (17pts, 5rbds) were the Lady Blues best performers and will need to the players Kilsyth watch out for come this weekend’s match.
