Lady Cobras (7-5) trip to Ballarat (5-3) will go a long way to determining whether this team can make finals in 2008. Kilsyth will play the Lady Miners just twice this year and with both teams expected to finish around the same win-loss it is imperative the Lady Cobras obtain the all important split. A win Saturday night would not only move Kilsyth into 4th place but give them a important advantage over the Lady Miners. With 7 of their last 11 games at home following this week and just a trip to Tassie and two metro Melbourne the Lady Cobras have a desirable run home.
Clare Papavs (16ppg & 7.4rpg) and Sarah Parsons (13.8ppg & 9.9rpg) have been excellent so far in 2008, but the form of one of the Leagues most improved players has been the different. Hayley Moffatt (12.2ppg & 5.4rpg) has tripled her production and become a major force for the Lady Cobras. Desiree Glaubitz has yet to hit her straps after returning from Europe and will be keen for a big performance against her old team.
The Lady Cobras return home Saturday 17th May to take on the Bendigo Lady Braves with tip off at 6.15pm.
Cobras (4-7) will be keen to record a couple of victories on their trip to the ACT this weekend as they take on Canberra (7-7) and the Students from the AIS (4-6) who moved above the Cobras into 4th place on the South Ladder last weekend.
After a disappointing stretch in which the Cobras have lost 6 of their last 7 games, the season in on the brink and nothing less than a 2-0 weekend will be accepted from Coach Grant Wallace.
The Cobras recorded a victory earlier in the season at home against a talented Canberra Gunners line up and will be looking to do the same.
Inconsistency has plague the team from the onset, Kilsyth have not been able to get all their weapons firing at the same time. The play of individuals in specific games has been great, but the challenge for Wallace and the team will be play well at the same time.
Zach Malvik (22.5ppg & 3.5apg) has been a worthy contribution to the team but must continue to distribute the ball as he did last weekend against Hobart recording 8 assists. Joe Werner (19.9ppg & 15.0rpg) has been a sensation for the Cobras recording 10 double-doubles in 11 games. Despite constant foul trouble early in the season, he has managed to stay out of the referees whistle in recent weeks and play more minutes.
Two wins will move the Cobras back into 4th on the South Ladder and create some momentum for a battle next Saturday night at they take on the Geelong Supercats and former Cobra Brad Bridgewater next Saturday Night at home. Tip off is schedule for 8.15pm.
