Box Score

Sarah Parsons led the way with 26pts, 9 rbds and 6 assists in a display which will surely catch the eye of a few WNBL coaches.  Teammate Desiree Glaubitz also starred putting in her best performance of the year to finish with 22 pts. 

The Lady Cobras turned up for the match with the news that Tornadoes dynamite Nat Hurst had been suspended for 10 weeks by the Tasmania Basketball tribunal but a last minute appeal allowed her to play in this crucial game.  Coach Jason Knight was not surprised Hurst’s addition to the roster, “We prepared all week that Nat Hurst was playing and didnt expect for one minute that she wouldnt”.  Hurst finished with 24 pts and 9 assists to lead Launceston but it was her seven turnovers than created opportunities for Kilsyth.

Kilsyth jumped out to a seven point lead in the first quarter which included 18 points in the paint, in a dominating stat that the Lady Cobras won 58-36 for the game.

All the Tornadoes WNBL stars turned out to play with Hays (16pts, 15rbds), Sinclair (17pts) and Dalgleish (17pts) all getting amongst the scores but the high scoring Lady Cobras werent to be out done with Parsons and Glaubitz receiving quality support from Papavs (11pts, 8rbds), Kerr (12pts) and Mcmenamin and Moffatt (8pts a piece).

Kilsyth out shot the Tornadoes from the field 46% to 41% but again struggled from the free throw line converting on just 16/25 opportunities.

The Lady Cobras travel up to Devonport to take on NW Tasmania next in an important game which will create some breathing space in the top 4 should they get the win.

Kilsyth will return home next Saturday Night 21st June at 6.15pm to take on Nunawading who sit at 13-4 in third place on the ladder.  Nunawading our now the only top four team the Lady Cobras are yet to beat in 2008.  Kilsyth will be fired up as Erica McMenamin plays her 200th SEABL for the Lady Cobras in front of what is expected to be a massive crowd in this local derby.
