Saints go down to Kyneton
THREE three-pointers and a commanding 17 points from returning Saint, Grace McKerral was not enough to propel Myrtleford’s Women’s CBL team to an upset win over Kyneton on the weekend.
Playing away from home the Saints fought hard to be level with the Tigers at three quarter time but they ultimately ran out of legs as a 17-6 fourth quarter run from Kyneton put the game to bed.
Coach, Les Stevens, said he felt the team maintained their good form despite the loss.
“They are a really good team (Kyneton) and were way taller than us but the girls really dug deep to nearly grab a win,” he said.
“We have started to create a bit more space and are beginning to get our full list available.
“Grace coming back in really added to our scoring power, we were able to stretch them a bit more and she shot the ball really well which is what she’s there for.”
The Saints return to Myrtleford this Sunday with a home clash against Echuca, putting to end a stretch of away games.
“We want to stamp our authority and be aggressive in front of our home crowd and hopefully get a win,” Stevens said.
“On Saturday night I think we really came a long way, it was great to see us compete against a good team and hopefully we can carry that on.”
Tip off for the Saints’ clash with Echuca is 1pm.
In the Men’s, Myrtleford will be desperate to get back on the winners list when they travel to Benalla to face the struggling Breakers.
The game gets underway Saturday night at 7pm at the Benalla Indoor Recreation Centre.
