First up is the Workforcexs Lady Cobras (6-3) who face the Dandenong Lady Rangers (7-3), both sides had wins last weekend with Dandenong defeating Nunawading by 17, 59-42; and the Workforcexs Lady Cobras handing another loss to the winless Sandringham, 52-37.
Win Sunday afternoons game and the Workforcexs Lady Cobras will be on equal wins with Dandenong, lose and they risk falling being two games behind. Sam Drescher was again outstanding in the win against Sandringham last Saturday night with 24 points and 13 rebounds.
Drescher is averaging 16.1 points per game and shooting at 44.5% FG, as well as 11.6 rebounds per game. It seems if she plays well so does the team, the key to beating Dandenong on Sunday will be to have an all-round team performance.
The Workforcexs Lady Cobras will also need to ensure that they put a stop to the Lady Rangers Jacinta Vandenberg who is averaging 14.6 rebounds 11.4 points, shooting at 70% FG per game.
Sunday’s game will be a tight one with the two teams splitting wins against each other so far this season.
The Workforcexs Lady Cobras tip off at 12:00pm against the Dandenong Lady Rangers at Dandenong Stadium.
The Workforcexs Cobras (6-3) have the measure of this week’s opponent having beaten the Dandenong Rangers (3-7) twice already this Season. The last time these sides met was in round five and Kilsyth came away with a 12 point win.
However Coach Rod Popp will not be impressed with his sides loss to Sandringham last Saturday night, 64-50, and with Will Sinclair of to Europe with the Australian emus will be keen for his side to perform.
Dandenong secured their third win of the season last week with a 13 point win over Nunawading, 78-65. Benjamin Gaze (19pts, 4rbds) and Calvin Enge (18pts, 6rbds) were great for the Rangers in the win and Kilsyth will need to stop both this Sunday to secure the Sunday’s game.
In their loss to Sandringham the Workforce Cobras only shot at 28% FG, if they had have managed to drop more of their attempted 64 baskets maybe they would have gotten over the line, Kilsyth will need to fix this problem before this weekend’s game.
