Hayley Moffatt (18pts, 6rbds), Alice Kunek (16pts, 6rbds) and Gemma Kerr (16pts) all stepped up, while Ellie Manou (15pts, 9rbds) also scored in double figures but was limited to just 16 minutes on the floor due to floor trouble.

The Swinburne Lady Cobras showed they could cover the absence of their leading scorer in the opening term racing to a 28-15 lead at the first break.

Albury regained their composure in the second term as Kilsyth’s hot shooting streak was halted.  Despite slowing down the Swinburne Lady Cobras, Albury were unable to cut into the margin with Kilsyth taking a 13 point advantage into the second half.

Kilsyth took their foot of the pedal early in the third term and Albury were able to capitalise, reducing the margin to eight midway through the term. Cheryl Chambers took a timeout to stop the Bandits run and her team responded going on a 12-2 run to end the quarter making the margin 18 at the final change.

The Swinburne Lady Cobras were again challenged by Albury in the final term with the Bandits within 12 points mid way through the quarter. But Ellie Manou ended any thoughts Albury had of causing an upset, scoring nine final quarter points to put the game beyond doubt.

Lisa Walbutton (18pts, 10rbds) and Lisa Edmondson (14pts, 9 rbds) lead the scoring for Albury.

Kilsyth won the rebound count 39-34 and shot at 43% from the field compared to 37% from Albury.  Also pleasing was the 90% shooting from the free throw line.

The Swinburne Lady Cobras will take on Japan on Tuesday 8 June 2010 at 6.15pm in an International Friendly match before taking a well deserved break over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend.

Kilsyth return home on Saturday 26 June 2010 to take on the Nunawading Spectres at 6.15pm.
