As her former Arizona State Sun Devils were winning their NCAA tournament game, Amy Denson (26pts) was leading her new team to their first win of 2009. Denson showed her class against Opals Squad member Cayla Francis (8pts, 10 rbds) dominating in the paint.
In a low scoring first quarter Amy Lewis (24pts, 7rbds) helped the Lady Miners take a 16-15 quarter time lead as the Lady Cobras were restricted at the offensive end.
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.
Hayley Moffatt (13pts) and Amy Denson each scored 6 points in the final term as the Lady Cobras scored 23 for the quarter while holding their opponent to just 16. Coach Jason Knight commended his team for holding the dangerous Lady Miners to 16 or under in each of the four quarters.
