Saints go down to Kyne­ton

Myrtleford Times - - Sports -

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.
