Kilsyth were right in the contest in the opening term with both teams trading baskets until the Raiders created a three point buffer at the first break.
Amy Denson (21pts, 8rbds) and Katy Werner (8pts, 6rbds) provided the spark for the Cobras in the opening term but despite their efforts on the offensive boards were unable break into the Raiders lead.
After a slow start to the second term the Lady Cobras ignited scoring 18 points in the final 5 minutes of the quarter to go into the main break down by just a single basket.
Hayley Moffatt (11pts) was the only other player in double figures as Knox sent the Lady Cobras packing with a 17-8 third quarter. Ashlee Dunlap (23pts, 10rbds, 5ass), Lil Keane, Megan Sinclair and Rachael Waterhouse (all 14pts) led six Raiders in double figures.
The final quarter was a white wash with the Raiders scoring at will building a 27 point lead at one stage. By the final siren the margin was 22 and the Lady Cobras got a hard reality check.
Kilsyth remain 4th on the ladder at 10-7 but Nunawading (9-7) are chasing them down fast. The Lady Cobras will now need to win their final three games just to have a chance of hosting a final.
The Lady Cobras have a bye next weekend before travelling to Albury on Saturday 18 July 2009.
