After a disappointing and forgettable Friday night where the Swinburne Kilsyth Cobras went down to Geelong 88 to 52, the Swinburne Cobras were able to turn it around on Saturday, taking out their first win of the season in a closely contended match. Against the reigning SEABL Champions the Swinburne Kilsyth Cobras played the style of game more befitting their roster over the frenetic 40 minute battle. Swinburne Cobras import EJ Kusnyer had had a stellar game scoring 31 point including 7 from 11 behind arc. Also playing a great game was Tim Lang who scored 23 point and 9 rebounds. In a nail biting final quarter in which it could have gone either way, the Swinburne Cobras took the upper hand defeating the Bandits 83 to 76.
