KILSYTH 77 (White 19, Noble 10)
BALLARAT 48 (Cann 21, Nestor 9)
Both teams fought hard in the first quarter, but Kilsyth lifted their defensive intensity in the second term to limit the nuggets to eight points, and grabbed a match winning 32-21 lead at the half. Adrianna Cann was the only solid contributor for the Lady Nuggets, but she was unable to guide her team mates to victory as nobody else from her team stepped up to help her out. Every player on the Kilsyth line-up scored and coach Ed Dunstan was able to give his bench court time as the Lady Cobras led by 20pts after the third quarter.
