McMenamin’s 9pts and 5 assists was a courageous effort, one that inspired her team mates, and the men who followed, and would have made her Dad proud as the Lady Cobras (6-4) defeated Albury (0-9) 81-57.
Desiree Glaubitz returned for the Lady Cobras in her first game of the 2008 SEABL season after spending the first 6 weeks of the season in Europe, she was solid recording 14pts, 8 rbds and 6 assists. Looking eager to get back in the Cobras uniform Glaubitz helped Kilsyth shoot out to a 26-12 quarter time lead.
The second quarter saw the Lady Cobras continue to build upon the lead, stretching it out to 19 points at the half. Coach Jason Knight was again able to give his bench plenty of quality minutes as they put together an 18-0 run to make sure they were in a position to sweep the Lady Bandits in ’08.
Gemma Kerr moved into the starting line-up and had her most productive game of the season as she record 16 pts and pulled in 7 rebounds. Sarah Parsons recorded her 5th double-double of the year with 14pts and 11 rbds.
Albury held solid in the 3rd not allowing Kilsyth to push the lead out past 20 points, in a slow scoring quarter 14-13. Jessie Smith was the major contributor for the Lady Bandits, finishing with 21 pts and 12 rbds.
Kilsyth smashed the Lady Bandits on the boards 59-33 and outscored them 36-16 in the paint with their versatile line up. Hayley Moffatt again impressed hitting 11 pts. Her consistent output has been a major factor in the Lady Cobras six wins so far in 2008.
