(Supercats season record 2-0 : 2nd on the East Ladder)
The St Laurence Geelong Supercats got off to a good start but lost momentum in the second quarter. They came back after the main break determined to get back into the game, and kept the scores close up until three quarter time. The final quarter saw the Supercats break away and run over the Chargers in a convincing win.
Kimmani Barrett was again sensational for the Supercats, top scoring with 21 points despite only playing 21 minutes, while big man Seb Loader finished with a double double (11 points and 11 rebounds) matching up against 7’3″ Sam Harris.
Nick Owusu and Theron Wilson both finished with 18 points, with Owusu only one rebounds off getting a double double himself.
The boys have a tough double coming up this weekend, with the always difficult Mt Gambier road trip on Friday night and then having to back it up again at home on Saturday night against the Sandrigham Sabres who are currently 3-0.
