With Denson and Sarah Parsons (7pts, 12rbds, 5 assists) still finding their groove in the 2nd, Ballarat extended the lead to 4 points.
After a half time speech from Coach Jason Knight the Lady Cobras came out with some more urgency in the 3rd and the scoring options opened up. Denson found her range finishing with 11pts for the quarter, as the Lady Cobras took a 3 point lead into the final term. With Gemma Kerr (8 assists) finding her open team mates the Lady Cobras began to find the team work which took them to the 2008 SEABL Title.
