Last Saturday night saw a comprehensive 75-47 win by the Swinburne Lady Cobras against the Frankston Lady Blues, a confident Kilsyth (3-1) now play the Nunawading Specter’s (4-2) this Saturday night.

With Head Coach Cheryl Chambers still away in China on Australian Gems representative duties, Assistant Coach Peter Gay will again take the reins and after such a resounding result last week, confidence will be high amongst the team.

Chantella Perera (23pts, 5rbds, 4stl, 3bl) played her best game for Kilsyth against Frankston and will be keen to continue her good form against Nunawading, Eva Afeaki is also having a great start to the season, currently sitting fifth in the league for rebounds (9.5rbds PG).

Nunawading will again be without Carly Wilson and after scraping through against Sandringham and then losing to Geelong last weekend they are struggling to get wins on the board. Ex-Cobra, Alice Kunek, has been one of the Specter’s most consistent performers and Kilsyth will need to shut her down if they want the points on Saturday night.

It was clear at the start of the season that if the Swinburne Lady Cobras hit their straps they would be one of the teams to beat and with their current form the rest of the competition will need to watch out. A more settled and cohesive Kilsyth should account for Nunawading on Saturday night, but not after a tough tight contest.

The Swinburne Lady Cobras tip off against Nunawading at 6.30pm this Saturday night 7 May at Nunawading Basketball Stadium.
