Thun­der weath­ered the storm in a clash of youth in their Kar­ratha Bas­ket­ball As­so­ci­a­tion match against the Cy­clones last Thurs­day.

The sharp Thun­der squad con­trolled the match with ease against the plucky Cy­clones, win­ning 2911.

Ja­son Al­monte was the go-to man for Cy­clones, scor­ing nine points from the tim­ber.

In other B-grade men’s ac­tion the Vipers used a full bench to stay fresh against the Flak­ers who sunk to an­other loss.

Things were tight in the first 10 min­utes of the match as Flak­ers grit and pass­ing skills had them right in there at 5-7 down.

The size of the Vipers took its toll on their defence as their re­bounds stacked up against them.

Vipers went on a tear to win the match 37-5.

In his re­turn to the Vipers af­ter a few matches away Mark Saun­ders scored 10 handy points with some top as­sists from long-time team mate Michael Lewis into the block.

In the women’s divi­sion Sin­ners pulled off a huge win against the Goat Trouts win­ning by a point, 2322.

Sin­ners’ Jac­que­line Gart­ner (10 points) and Rowe­nia Tu­moana (nine points) com­bined for 19 in the tough match.

Tracey Ward and Clarissa Kjel­le­gren were the high scor­ers for Trouts with six a piece.

Peagy Fly­ers’ Tara Newn­ham had 10 points in a six-point vic­tory against the Beavers in an­other gritty game in the women’s com­pe­ti­tion.

#Yo­getit had a blinder against the Mayuga Ma­jik in a nail-bit­ing 45-42 win.

Shane Bad­ham had 15 points for #Yo­getit, while Beau Alec for the Ma­jik had 10 points in the fran­tic match.

The talk around the locker room af­ter­wards though was of an un­named #Yo­getit player who claimed to have the fastest team in the league but was nowhere to be found af­ter the match to referee the fol­low­ing games.
