Game preview for this weekend’s double header games against the Canberra Gunners and the Sandringham Sabres. 

The Swinburne Lady Cobras are off to an impressive start in SEABL 2012, sitting in second place on the ladder with a 7-2 record.  The Swinburne Lady Cobras enter tonight’s game after a 12 point victory last weekend on the road against the Frankston Blues.

Led by their Captain and SEABL scoring leader Chantella Perera (21.1 points per game), the Swinburne Lady Cobras are finding ways to take down opponents week after week.  In addition to a strong attack, their solid defensive efforts are forcing teams into numerous turnover scenarios which the Swinburne Lady Cobras are converting to big scores. 

The Canberra Lady Gunners got off to a slow start in the 2012 SEABL season, but have recently found their stride as they are on a two game win streak.  Last week, the Lady Gunners defeated the Sandringham Sabres 66-54 thanks to the hot shooting of Alyce Shearing who put in 26 points in the effort.  The Lady Gunners will be looking to continue their run against the Swinburne Lady Cobras tonight.

On Sunday, the Swinburne Lady Cobras will travel to Sandringham to take on the Lady Sabres.  The Sandringham Lady Sabres are in fourth place on the East ladder with a 5-6 record.  While the Lady Sabres will be without powerhouse Tegan Cunningham, their leading scorer Micaela Cocks (19.4 points per game and tied for second in SEABL scoring leaders) will look to pick up the slack. 

The Swinburne Lady Cobras face the Canberra Gunners at home on Saturday with tip off at 6:15pm and travel to Sandringham on Sunday to take on the Lady Sabres with tip off at 12:30pm.

The Swinburne Kilsyth Cobras enter this round with something to prove as they look to get back on track after a tough 71-62 loss last weekend to the Frankston Blues.  The Swinburne Kilsyth Cobras have come up short in the last few games, and are focused on making the right adjustments to get back on the winning side in competitions and start moving back up the ladder.

For the Canberra Gunners, a disappointing performance last weekend resulted in a 97-64 loss to the Sandringham Sabres.  The Gunners have so far struggled this season, only recording one win so far in SEABL competition.  Led by Alex Gynes (19.5 points per game), the Gunners are anxious to end their losing streak and will be strengthened by the addition of A.I.S. scholarship holder Owen Odigie as well as Jaecob Snow and Matt Andonicos, also A.I.S. scholarship holders.

The Swinburne Kilsyth Cobras will play the Sandringham Sabres on the road on Sunday.  The Sabres have protected their home floor all season, going 4-0 in all home matches.  Their tough play has resulted in winning five out of their last six games.  Overcoming these odds will be tough for the Swinburne Kilsyth Cobras, but with the right adjustments and a winning attitude anything is possible.

The Swinburne Kilsyth Cobras face the Canberra Gunners at home on Saturday with tip off at 8:15pm and travel to Sandringham on Sunday to take on the Sabres with tip off at 2:30pm.
