SEABL Preliminary Finals: Geelong cruise to …

SEABL MEN Photo Credit: SEABL The Kilsyth Cobras have booked a spot in the Conference Final, defeating the N/W Tasmania Thunder, 84-70, on the road. After earning a double chance, the Thunder lost both playoff games as their front court was decimated by Auryn MacMillan (26 points, 17 rebounds, 5 assists), Joel Naburgs (19, 7 and 7) and Tim Lang (13, 6 and 3). They helped the visitors to 8 more offensive rebounds, 15 more boards overall and a 17-9 advantage in second chance points. A hot start for N/W Tasmania saw them open up a 7 point advantage by the first break but by three-quarter time, Kilsyth had drawn level. They then ran away in a 24-10 final quarter, setting up a date with Mt. Gambier next Friday night. Kyle Clark (26 points, 5 rebounds) was the highlight for the Thunder, hitting 7-10 from beyond the arc while BJ Jenkins collected a modest 18 and 6.
