In a tough encounter Rachel Lucas lead the Cobras scoring with 18 points and Hannah Taulien had 11 but it was game MVP and Knox Raider Sonia Dirito who was the difference in the game as she finished with 30 points.
Kilsyth kept the game in check early as both teams went basket for basket in front of a good crowd at Dandenong. In the 3rd term Knox found their range to build a sizable lead. With Coach Sumner forced to rest Lucas who was in foul trouble, the margin blew out. Kilsyth put together a mini-rally in the 4th quarter but it wasn’t enough as they eventually went down by 15 points.
Despite the loss, it was a wonderful effort by Coach Shawn Sumner and the team to finish runners up in the Victorian Championships.
The girls will now have a short break before returning for tryouts on Friday 3rd October 2008.
Congratulations Under 12 “Phil Mundays” Kilsyth Cobra girls, 2008 Victorian Championship Runners Up
