Lady Cobras Import Amy Denson (18pts, 5 rbds) was the only shinning light for Kilsyth but fouled out in 32 minutes against Australian Opals and Lady Spartans star Emma Randall (15pts, 10rbds).
Renowned for their high paced and explosive offensive the Lady Cobras managed just 52 points while shooting at 22% for the game.
More of a worry for Coach Jason Knight is at the defensive end where Kilsyth gave up 87 points and allowed Brisbane to shoot at an amazing 63% for the game.
The Lady Cobras were forced to play from behind for the entire game after Brisbane recorded a 31-9 first quarter to smash the Lady Cobras into reality. Kilsyth were able to grab just one rebound for the quarter while throwing the ball away seven times.
Jason Knight pleaded with his team at quarter time and got the desired result as the Lady Cobras rattled of a 17-12 quarter to get themselves back into the contest.
Despite the positive 2nd term, the comeback proved short lived with Brisbane outscoring the Lady Cobras 44-26 in the second half and remaining unbeaten for the 2009 SEABL Season.
Coach Jason Knight will need to turn around his teams form quickly if they are going to have the opportunity to defend their title.
