THE Cock­burn Cougars re­turned to form with a big win over Man­durah on Fri­day.

Across town, Lake­side slumped to its fifth con­sec­u­tive de­feat af­ter falling to the pre­vi­ously win­less Kala­munda 128 to 123 in over­time.

Kala­munda had lost its open­ing 11 games of the sea­son but proved too good for the Light­ning.

Jar­rad Prior led the Suns to vic­tory with 31 points.

Car­ley Mi­jovic scored 24 points and Sab­rina Jeri­dore 23 for Kala­munda.

Cock­burn’s three-game win­ning streak ended at the hands of Man­durah in a feisty, pas­sion-filled game.

The um­pires were un­der fire all game, with play­ers from both teams, and the fans, tak­ing ex­cep­tion to a num­ber of calls.

An­nette Davis, Casey Mi­hovilovich and Adi­jat Adams all scored 15 points or more to help the Magic home 73 to 64.

Can­dace Wil­liams scored 27 points for the Cougars.

Un­for­tu­nately the sup­port around her was lack­ing.

Cher­ridy Thorn­ton was the only other Cougar to reach dou­ble fig­ures, scor­ing 11 points.

Mar­cus Goode (22) top-scored with 26 points for the Cougars.
