Match Report
After gaining a double-digit ascendancy in the first quarter, the Supercats never looked back in running away with the victory with this one against the Tigers.
Geelong withstood a brief run from Melbourne to start the second half, but it was nothing significant enough to rattle the young Supercats.

Coaches Comments
‘Really impressed with this one, overall.
Great execution of defensive concepts and offensive principles.
Really happy with the boys to be able to take their form from the tournament and get back on the winner’s list for the regular season.
Just goes to demonstrate that there is in fact a retention of learning from week to week, after all’

Coaches Comments
The away game that the girls needed to win to break away on top, this game was 1st against 2nd.
The girls had another slow start 11-2 just before the 1st quarter break, keilor were playing really well in their offence getting the overlap and some clear shots up.
The girls shooting % i believe would of been close to 20% they just werent finishing off tonight, some very easy ones and some unlucky ones.
Again to the girls credit they showed that they are willing to fight, they never gave up and finished a close one with a win that now puts the girls a game clear.
Before the game two captains were named after nearly all the girls got a chance to lead the team over last weekends tournament and the two girls were Tullualh and Lucy who will lead the group for the remainder of the season.
Well done to both girls.

The young Supercats played their first game of the VC Reserve nine game season against Cobras. The long lay off between games did not benefit the team and they played an uncharacteristic style of basketball.

Super warm up had us coming out of the blocks on fire 12-2p in the 1st. The 2nd was a more even affair with Melton on top by 1p, 10-11p and 22-13p at the main break . On fire again in the 3rd 14-2p, heading into the last 36-15p , 21p up. Our last quarter wasnt great going down 4-8 but coming out on top 40-23p and a good 17p win.

Great Team Effort
Coaches Comments
I was really impressed with the way the boys warmed up with lots of voice and intensity and they continued this into the first quarter playing some really good press defense and quick ball movement.
Our 2nd quarter was pretty even on the score board and was not without some drama with Doc ( Dylan Roberts) being aggressively pushed to the ground resulting in a broken wrist. Doc was on fire and has been working really hard at training to improve his shot technique and fitness, I’m sure this minor setback wont deter his efforts to improve. Our 3rd quarter had the boys lift the intensity again and Melton struggled to get the ball into any form of offense due to our pressure D. In the last quarter we took our foot off the pedal a bit and attempted way too many 3p shots instead of working our offense for THE best shot. It was good to see all the boys put in and to know we have still got a lot of improving to do really excites me.7

Match Report
In a deliberate attempt to unsettle our higher ranked opponents our girls pressed from the start. Our aggressive defence stopped the Bullens high scoring game. Offensively we were able to push the ball up the floor and our pace and quick ball movement enabled us to score. The first half was even with two points separating the tams mid way through the third. We had a lapse late in the third allowing their talls to take control, the lead blew out to 15 early in last. Our girls demonstrated their fitness by finishing stronger than Bullen with the final margin being a creditable 9 points. This was the closest margain aganst the undefeated league leaders.

Coaches Comments
We were able to make the adjustment to the tempo required to go with the stronger teams in VC. Our first game in VC showed we are good enough and if we duplicate this intensity in defence and continue to move the ball in offence our girls are capable of beating any team. Great work this week bring on Bendigo next week.

A game of missed opportunities upon reflection. We had plenty of good offensive looks but failed all night to capitalise. Defensively we didn’t work hard enough and allowed to many easy buckets. Pakenham best us in all facets of the game.

We can look to make excuses for our form slump (injuries, umpires etc) or we can choose work hard together as a team, play selfless basketball and remain positive. Good teams win well but also lose well and bounce back accordingly which l truely believe we are. Friday night against the 4s presents a stern challenge. Let’s make sure we are ready for it.

Match Report
After a weekend away in Ballarat for the Queens Birthday Tournament we where well prepared as a team after four games against quality opposition.
Our games against the Tigers have been close this year and the team that could hit the scoreboard with consistency would win the contest. We started strongly to open up a small lead in the first quarter but with foul trouble we let Melbourne take control in the second to take a handy lead at the half. We managed to settle and peg back the margin to one at the last change. We where confident going into the last but with shots not dropping and some very interesting calls gave Melbourne an 8 point win.

We are lucky that teams around us lost on the weekend. It leaves us with a good chance to make finals. We must start to hurt opposition teams on the score board and not give away silly fouls. Our defense is strong but our offence is a work in progress.

Match Report
Going into Friday night it was a must win game, even with 8 more games left in the season. In a see-sawing first half we weren’t able to make the most of our opportunities, with missed shots around the rim and defensive break downs allowing Corio to remain in the game. In the third, Corio made us pay opening a 7 point margin going into the 4th. During the fourth we were finally able to knock down shot that earlier in the game we hadn’t been able to convert. The defensive intensity lift and boys willed themselves back into the game and closed it down the stretch.

It was really pleasing to see our guys compete consistently at a level we expect for 40 minutes. We had great contributions from all 9 guys at both ends of the floor, and I think for the first time this season everyone hit the scoreboard.
