It was a disappointing weekend for the Workforcexs Lady Cobras and the Workforcexs Cobras with the men going down to both Nunawading and Ballarat while the women managed to get over the line against Ballarat after a big loss to Nunawading.

The Workforcexs Lady Cobras could only manage 35 points in their game against Nunawading going down by the same margin, 70-35. Kilsyth certainly had opportunities to score but when you shoot at 15.9% accuracy from the field for the game you are always going to struggle.

Nunawading shut down Workforcexs Lady Cobra Sam Dresher, holding her to just three points and nine rebounds. Nunawading dominated the scoring leading at every change; the final 35 point margin was the largest of the match.

The Workforcexs Lady cobras then returned home on Sunday afternoon to take on the Ballarat Lady Rush, after such an unconvincing performance the night before the entire team needed to lift, and that is what they did.

Unlike the night before, Kilsyth led for the entire game, leading by as much as 19 points early in the third quarter. Sam Dresher (25pts, 20rbds, 4as) turned around her poor performance against Nunawading with another dominant game; Brittany Renton had one of her best games for the year with 21 points and 11 rebounds.

After the weekend’s games, the Workforcexs Lady Cobras now sit just inside the top four just behind Frankston and just in front of Nunawading. With back to back games this weekend again Kilsyth will need to ensure they bring their ‘A’ game if they want to take part in play-offs.

The Workforcexs Kilsyth Lady Cobras face Frankston at Frankston this Saturday July 2 tip-off is at 5.45pm, they then return home to face Bendigo tip-off is at 12.30pm on Hugh McMenamin Court.

The Workforcexs Cobras almost stole the game from the Nunawading Spectres on Saturday night after a  22-10 final term, however they could not bridge the gap after a damaging 28-10 third quarter from the Spectres.

Nunawading made the most of their opportunities from the foul line, making 19 of 27 compared to just 8 from 26 for Kilsyth. Zach Taulien (14pts), Adam Knott (11pts, 9rbds) and Jackson Brazier (10pts) reached double figures for the Workforcexs Cobras, while Stephen O’Brien was just shy of a double-double with eight points and nine rebounds.

Returning home to take on Sunday to take on Ballarat was a tough task; the Workforcexs Cobras started the game well but had a poor second and final term resulted in Ballarat winning by 13 points.

Zach Taulien was again the top scorer for Kilsyth ending the game with 17 points, Stephen O’Brien got the double-double with 16 points and 13 rebounds and Adam Knott again showed why he is leading the competition for average rebounds per game pulling down another 12 boards.

The two losses resulted in Kilsyth slipping from second position to third position just in front of Sandringham; the Workforcexs Cobras have a huge weekend in front of them with back to back games.

The Workforcexs Kilsyth Cobras face Frankston at Frankston this Saturday July 2 tip-off is at 7.30pm, they then return home to face Bendigo tip-off is at 2.30pm on Hugh McMenamin Court.
