Lake­side out in semi-fi­nals

Cockburn Gazette - - SPORT -

LAKE­SIDE were bumped from the State Bas­ket­ball League race, los­ing their semi-fi­nal se­ries with Man­durah.

Lake­side’s women’s team en­tered the week­end one game down in the best-of-three se­ries but were able to push it to a de­cid­ing match with an 86-78 win at home on Fri­day.

Syd­nee Fipps was the stand­out, fin­ish­ing with a game-high 30 points and eight re­bounds, as the hosts won 86-78.

But the Light­ning were bun­dled out of the cham­pi­onship race the fol­low­ing night after Man­durah claimed game 3 and a grand fi­nal berth with a 67-61 win at the Man­durah Aquatic and Re­cre­ation Centre.

Fipps was out of touch, scor­ing eight points and shoot­ing 21 per cent from the field, but she did man­age to grab seven re­bounds.

Ali Sch­wag­meyer was her side’s best, scor­ing 26 points.

But Man­durah’s spread of scor­ing options over­whelmed the vis­i­tors, with Carly Boag (18 points), Bri­ana Klasz­torny (17) and Nici Gil­day (15) prov­ing hard to con­tain in a low-scor­ing en­counter.

Man­durah play Perry Lakes for the ti­tle.
