The League leading Swinburne Lady Cobras have set up an intriguing match-up with 3rd placed Bendigo next Sunday at the Kilsyth Sports Centre following their 2-0 weekend in Tasmania.
Alice Kunek (20pts, 11rbds) led a spread of scorers for Kilsyth, with Hannah Zavecz (14pts, 13rbds), Gemma Kerr (16pts) and Deanna Smith (14pts, 7ass) all scoring in double figures.
Ashton Eaton (16pts) and Kate Berry (10pts) were the only players in double digits for Hobart, with the Lady Chargers still searching for their maiden SEABL win after entering the League in 2010.
The inexperienced Lady Chargers stayed with the explosive Kilsyth in the opening term trailing by just two points at the first change. The Swinburne Lady Cobras, still adjusting to the cold Hobart weather, extended the margin in second term as they led by 12 at the half.
Not wanting to give Hobart a sniff, Kilsyth put their foot down in the third term outscoring the Lady Chargers 27-8 for the quarter to push the margin beyond 30.
Kilsyth Head Coach Cheryl Chambers gave her bench plenty of playing time during the final term and the Swinburne Lady Cobras went on to win by 34 points.
Chambers will now begin preparing her team for an important double header next weekend with match-ups against the 3rd placed Bendigo Lady Braves and talented Sandringham Sabres.
First they will need to take care of Sandringham on the road Saturday night (29 May 2010) before returning home to play the Lady Braves at 12.30pm on Sunday 30 May.
