The Lady Cobras got their season back on track last weekend defeating Bendigo 84-75 after losing on the siren to Nunawading 75-74 Saturday night.  Coach Jason Knight will be disappointed not to have won both games but pleased by the Lady Cobras form.

Amy Denson (20.6ppg, 11.5rpg) continues to be one of the League’s most dominant players and has already caught the attention of a few WNBL teams. The Lady Cobras will need her full production on Saturday night when they take on the Launceston Tornadoes.

The Tornadoes defeated the Lady Cobras 67-62 at Kilsyth earlier in the Season, a game that could haunt Kilsyth later in the Season.  Coach Jason Knight and the team have fond memories of Launceston after winning last years Semi Final against the Tornadoes on their way to the title.

Launceston (2-8) will be putting their season on the line in this game while the Lady Cobras have an opportunity to push themselves into finals contention.  Kilsyth (3-5) host Ballarat next weekend before taking on Sandringham on the Sunday and will be keen to pick up all three games.

Kilsyth are scheduled to take on the Tornadoes at 7.30pm Saturday 16 May with stats available on livestats via the SEABL website

The Cobras (5-6) were disappointed not to have taken advantage on Saturday night to move above .500.  Instead the Cobras lost to Nunawading 94-91 before redeeming themselves on Sunday against the Bendigo Braves.

Kilsyth currently sit 5th on the East Conference ladder while Hobart (9-3) are second and NW Tamania (3-9) are 7th.  Hobart have not lost at home so far in 2009 and defeated Kilsyth back in round 4 102-91.  The Cobras have since added Matt Shanahan to the roster and will announce another player signing by the end of the week.

Grant Wallace was pleased to see his team finally get its act together on Sunday against the Braves.  The Cobras balanced attacked and depth proved to much for Bendigo.

Joe Werner (18.5ppg, 13.2rpg) has lifted his game over the past few weeks as has sharp shooter Gerard Leonard (16.3ppg).  The test this weekend will be to stop the high scoring Tasmania teams.

Two wins will shoot Kilsyth into the top 4 while losses will see them fall from further from contention with Dandenong, Canberra and Ballarat.

The Cobras return home on Saturday 23 May 2009 to take on the Dandenong Rangers at 8.15pm.  This weekend you can follow their games on livestats on the SEABL website
