For the first time this year the Workforcexs Lady Cobras and the Swinburne Lady Cobras go back to back in a double header this Sunday afternoon on Hugh McMenamin Court.
The Workforcexs Lady Cobras (7-4) return home after traveling to Bendigo on Saturday night to take on the Knox Lady Raiders (12-1). Knox has not lost a game since the opening round will be looking to defeat Kilsyth for the third time this season.
The only time that Kilsyth has been defeated at home this season was against Knox and they will be looking to rectify this situation. Though they will need to ensure that they spread the load amongst the team if they wish to turn the tide, Knox have defeated Kilsyth by 34 points and 21 points this year, with Billie Lucas, Sam Donaldson and Cassie Smith dominating play.
Knox defeated Sandringham by 56 points last night and will be fresh come Sunday afternoon, the Workforcexs Lady Cobras will hopefully bring winning form from Saturday night against Bendigo into the game and match it with Knox to prove themselves as a real contender this season.
The Workforcexs Kilsyth Lady Cobras tip-off at 12:30pm Sunday 19 June against Knox on Hugh McMenamin Court.
After what will be a tough game on Saturday night the Swinburne Lady Cobras (9-3) face the Launceston Tornadoes (6-4) on Sunday afternoon.
The two teams met just three weeks ago down in Tasmania, where Kilsyth were victorious by 13 points, Abby Bishop starred for Kilsyth with 22 points and 16 rebounds however will be missing from this game due to Australian Opal commitments. Kilsyth will again need to produce a strong team effort to defeat Launceston.
Mia Newly, the SEABL player of the month for May has been fantastic for the Tornadoes this season averaging 19 points and 8.7 rebounds per game, the Swinburne Lady Cobras must contain her if they want to finish the weekend on a high.
It certainly is a big weekend with back to back games for Kilsyth but if they come out of the weekend with two wins they will have almost cemented their position in the top four.
The Swinburne Kilsyth Lady Cobras tip-off at 2:30pm Sunday 19 June against Knox on Hugh McMenamin Court.
