Suns women work their magic

Avon Valley Gazette - - SPORT -

THE Kala­munda Eastern Suns men lost a heart- stop­per in con­tro­ver­sial cir­cum­stances on Satur­day night while the women con­tin­ued their im­pres­sive form against the Man­durah Magic.

The Eastern Suns hosted the Magic at Ray Owen Sports Cen­tre in the State Bas­ket­ball League, with the women’s team con­tin­u­ing to im­press.

Man­durah started strongly against the Suns, but Kala­munda outscored the Magic 70- 42 over the fi­nal three quar­ters to end up win­ning 83- 60.

The win im­proved Kala­munda’s women to an 8- 4 record in fifth po­si­tion and it was on the back of 22 points, four re­bounds and three steals from cap­tain Jor­jah Smith.

The men’s con­test was a thriller that went right down to the wire, with Kala­munda big man Louis Timms hitting his sixth triple of the night with seven se­conds re­main­ing to tie scores at 100- apiece.

But Timms was then called for an un­sports­man­like foul on the in­bound pass, with Frank Fim­mano hitting one at the line.

Man­durah main­tained pos­ses­sion and again an un­sports­man­like foul was called on the Suns and the game was over, with the Magic win­ning 101- 100.

Jor­jah Smith in ac­tion.
