Box Score

After making massive strides in 2007, the Rod Popp lead Cobras have taken their play to another level in 2008.  The calculated victory against Nunawading was nothing spectatular but defensive stops turned into easy buckets and the Cobras continued to build a lead.

League leading scorer and MVP favourite Joel Naburgs continued his impressive debut season finishing with 23pts and 7 rebounds.  With four other players in double figures, Kilsyth was always going to trouble the Spectres. 

Scott Dixon, Cam Johnson, Zach Moult and Glenn Potts all scored in double figures while containing the Spectres at the defensive end to win the contest.

The Cobras face their biggest challenge of the season next Saturday night in the Preliminary Final facing the only team they haven’t beaten in 2008, Diamond Valley Eagles.  A 17 points home loss was followed by a 16 point deficit on the road.  Kilsyth will go into the game hoping to cause an upset over the regular season ladder leaders.

A win will put the Cobras into their first Youth League grand final since 2004 to take on either Dandenong or Melbourne who will play off in the other Preliminary final.
