The Geelong Supercats are the newest team in the competition and after losing their opening game to Bendigo 43-68 are a bit of an unknown. They boast Ex-Cobra Deanna Smith who was a 2010 SEABL All-Star, WNBL player Chelsea Aubry and WNBL Bendigo Spirit Assistant Coach Paul O’Brien and should be able to formulate a team that is a competitive SEABL outfit.
The Swinburne Lady Cobras are all the better for their loss to Knox last Saturday night, they had their chances to win the match and in the end it was their inability to score in the third quarter that let them down. It was evident in last week’s match that the more the girls play together and gel as a team the more of a threat they will become.
Hayley Moffatt (12pts, 7rbds) and newcomers Abby Bishop (17pts, 5rbds) and Eva Afeaki (9pts, 16rbds) were the top performers for the Swinburne Lady Cobras against Knox and are sure to continue this into Sunday’s game. One of the highlights from last week’s match was Afeaki’s’ attack on the ball, it is certainly something to be excited about for the rest of the Season. For Kilsyth to come away with the win this weekend they will need to ensure that they improve their shooting accuracy.
Watch-out for the match-up on ex-cobra Deanna Smith and a Swinburne Lady Cobra team ready to impress in their first home game on the brand new Hugh McMenamin court at the Kilsyth Sports Centre.
The Swinburne Kilsyth Lady Cobras will tip off against Geelong @ Home 1:00pm Sunday April 10.
