This Saturday night sees the Workforcexs D-League Kilsyth Cobras take on the Sandringham Sabers at home in their only games for the weekend.
First up sees the Workforcexs Lady Cobras (5-3) take on the winless Sandringham (0-8). Kilsyth had mixed results coming out of last weekend’s games losing by 14 points against Bendigo in Bendigo on Saturday night then backing up on the Sunday with a win against Frankston, 74-55.
SEABL D-League player of the month of April 2011, Sam Drescher had a below average performance against Bendigo and subsequently Kilsyth struggled, whereas against Frankston on the Sunday Drescher was the standout performer with 27 points and 15 rebounds and Kilsyth came away with a comfortable win. The WorkforceXS Lady Cobras need to ensure that they have a more even spread of performances from the entire team if they wish to challenge Knox this Season.
Head Coach Ed Dunstan was not happy with his team’s performance against Bendigo and ensured that a different side came out against Frankston and that form should continue this weekend with Kilsyth being just too strong for Sandringham.
The Workforcexs Lady Cobras tip off at 6.15pm against Sandringham on Hugh McMenamin Court.
The Workforcexs Kilsyth Cobras (6-2) are sitting second on the ladder just behind Knox and just in front of this week’s opposition Sandringham (5-3). After a 20 point win against Bendigo in Bendigo last Saturday night Kilsyth will be looking to give themselves some breathing space from Sandringham on the ladder.
Head Coach Rod Popp must be happy with his young side’s form, apart from two losses to top of the table Knox, Kilsyth has not dropped a game and with an even spread of performances from the team they can only continue to improve.
Against Bendigo last week Zach Taulien (16pts, 6rbds), Will Sinclair (14pts, 6rbds) and Adam Knott (8pts, 11rbds) were the star performers, Sandringham will need to be mindful of all three as well as ensuring that they don’t forget about Daniel Tomada or Arjen Smit who have the ability to hurt opposition sides as well.
After a good week on the training track expect a hard fought contest that should see the WorkforceXS Cobras getting over the line and staying close to league leaders Knox.
The Workforcexs Cobras tip off at 8.15pm against Sandringham on Hugh McMenamin Court.
