Quincy Henderson (12pts, 6rbds) did an outstanding job on Geelong import Ismail Muhammad (31pts, 8rbds) during the first half with the majority of his points coming during the second half when the game was beyond reach.

Kilsyth’s returning college graduate Auryn Macmillan (11pts, 5rbds) showed he will be a solid contributor for the Swinburne Cobras as the Season continues to unfold, as he impressed many in his SEABL debut.
