Last Sunday saw the Workforcexs Lady Cobras (3-2) again lose comprehensively to arch rivals Knox, 43-64. Kilsyth needs to win their game against the Dandenong Lady Rangers (4-2) on Saturday night to ensure that they stay in touch with the top four.
The issue for the Lady Cobras in their past two games against Knox has been their inability to score, Kate Caulfield (12pts) and Sam Drescher (10pts) will both need to produce strong offensive games on Saturday night if Kilsyth are to win. Dandenong have a deep and talented roster so the game is sure to be a tight and thrilling contest.
In the second game on Saturday night the WorkforceXS Kilsyth Cobras (3-2) take on the Dandenong Rangers (1-5).
Like the Workforcexs Lady Cobras the Workforcexs Cobras again lost to Knox last Sunday, 51-58. Kilsyth produced a stronger team performance against Knox and this Saturday against the Dandenong Rangers they will be looking to consolidate their position in the top four.
The issue for Kilsyth at the moment is their inability to score, last Sunday they put up 36 more baskets than Knox but Knox was far more accurate which enabled them to come away with the win. Aaron Reinbott (16pts, 6 rbds) almost won the game in the last quarter after some great shooting; Arjen Smit needs to ensure he has an impact on the scoreboard to ensure the Workforcexs Cobras get over the line against bottom of the table, Dandenong.
The Workforcexs Lady Cobras tip off at 6.15pm and the Workforcexs Cobras tip off at 8.15pm, both games are being played on Hugh McMenamin Court.
