Hornets back

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Hor­sham Hornets men’s and women’s out­fits will look to pick up where they left off when they re­turn from a Christ­mas-new Year break on Satur­day.

Both Hor­sham teams are en­joy­ing a stel­lar sea­son in Coun­try Basketball League’s new north-west con­fer­ence and are sit­ting on top of their re­spec­tive lad­ders.

The Hor­sham men have two games re­main­ing for the home-and-away sea­son.

They will host fifth-placed Kyne­ton at the week­end be­fore meet­ing third-placed Mil­dura, also at home, on Jan­uary 20. The Hornets de­feated Kyne­ton by 37 points when the sides last met, in Novem­ber, and will be out to keep their record against the Tigers in­tact.

The Hornets women will play their fi­nal game for the home-and-away sea­son on Satur­day, with a bye the fol­low­ing week.

The Lady Hornets were un­der­manned the last time they met Kyne­ton and were forced to fight for their four-point vic­tory. The Hor­sham out­fit will look to en­ter fi­nals on a high note by de­feat­ing the Tigers and re­tain­ing top spot.


The Ararat Red­backs have three south-west con­fer­ence games re­main­ing be­fore fi­nals.

The Red­backs will meet Terang at Terang on Satur­day night, fol­lowed by matches against Mil­li­cent and Port­land.

Ararat’s two wins have come against Terang and Port­land and the Red­backs will look to fin­ish their in­au­gu­ral sea­son on a high note.

Ararat’s women’s team will look to add to its one win for the sea­son af­ter a com­pet­i­tive show­ing. The women also have three games re­main­ing and will front up against the Tor­na­does on Satur­day.

Women’s CBL matches start at 6pm, fol­lowed by the men’s at 8pm.
