In a slow, half court based game the Lady Cobras were made to work for every basket in this encounter as both teams zoned up for most of the game.  It became a test of which team had the ability to break the opposition zone and it wasn’t until the 4th quarter that the game opened up for the Lady Cobras.

Points off the bench was a key with Brooke Nisi (11 pts) and Caitlin Mulhall (10 points) having their most impressive SEABL games to date.  Nisi in her first season and Mulhall in her second teamed up with fellow second year player Hayley Moffatt (13 pts) to give the Lady Cobras an even scoring spread.

Erica McMenamin led from the front finishing with 7 pts, 7 rbds and 8 assists to lead her young team to another victory.  Frankston became very one dimensional and apart from Ofsoski (22 pts) didn’t have enough weapons to worry Kilsyth.

Both teams are set to improve in the coming weeks with the return of Sarah Parsons and Desiree Glaubitz for Kilsyth and Marita Payne and Kylie Jordon for the Lady Blues.  This game will prove to be an important victory for the Lady Cobras as both teams look to find a place in the 2008 SEABL finals.

Kilsyth must now back up against 1st placed and unbeaten Nunawading in another cross town contest tomorrow before travelling to Brisbane to take on South Districts next Saturday night.  The Lady Cobras will be looking to extend the winning streak to 5 and firmly consolidate their spot in the top 4 even before the return on their two stars.

For all the Lady Cobras action stay tuned to
