Ellie Manou (20pts, 8rbds) maintained her excellent form to date, leading the Swinburne Lady Cobras to their eight win of the Season.
Kilsyth quickly jumped out to an early lead in the opening term with Alice Kunek (15pts) and Deanna Smith (14pts, 8rbds) both finding the bottom of the net.
Manou was proving a difficult match up for the Lady Blues and their extra attention allowed Hayley Moffatt (11pts, 9rbds) to sneak under the radar helping the Swinburne Lady Cobras to a 16 point half time lead.
Mikaela Dombkins (22pts, 8rbds) was doing all she could for Frankston but with no other Lady Blues scoring in double figures the margin continued to grow. Recently signed Australian Opals squad member Hannah Zavecz did her part in her second game for Kilsyth finishing with 8 points and 7 rebounds.
Kilsyth put their foot down in the third term holding Frankston to just seven points for the quarter while scoring 22 of their own to extend the margin beyond 30.
The final term was more of the same with Coach Cheryl Chambers giving her bench plenty of playing time in the 38 point win. The victory will see the Swinburne Lady Cobras climbed back into the top 2 with a match up with top of the table Launceston coming up on the road next weekend.
Kilsyth outrebounded the Lady Blues 42-22 and will need more of the same next week when they take on former Lady Cobra Sarah Parsons and Australian Opals Centre 6″8′ Liz Cambage.
The Swinburne Lady Cobras will take on Launceston on Friday night before travelling to Hobart on Saturday to take on the Lady Chargers. Kilsyth will return home to face the Bendigo Lady Braves at 12.30pm on Sunday 30 May at the Kilsyth Sports Centre.
