SECBL takes over Icehouse

It was one way traffic in the sole MG Plasterers South East Coast Basketball League men’s matchup last week.

Playing for third spot on the ladder, Bulldogs Blue was the more desperate of the two sides from the opening tip.

Simon Berkefeld continued with his slippery ways finding openings through the smallest gaps to get to the hoop consistently and score 22 points.

Ben Young had a coming of age game with 21 points including a trio of three pointers, while Josh McGregor did his best for Cougars with a team high 20 points.

Bulldogs Blue emerged victorious by 21 points.

Two games took place in the MG Plasterers South East Coast Basketball League women’s league.

The Cats piled on the points in its game against Bulldogs/Roos with five players reaching double figures led by Emily Winter with 19.

The Bulldogs/Roos team found some easy points through the hustle of Jordy Adams, but could not string together enough defensive stops to stay in the contest.

Lucy Denton of the Cats continues to grow as a player and as an inside and outside threat to score, making her a matchup nightmare for opponents in th3 81-55 win.

The Panthers proved it can match it with the best in the competition and took the fight to Saints across the full four quarters.

Trailing by one point with five minutes to go in the contest, it was league star Jasmin Howe who stepped up for Saints with a big three pointer and gaining momentum for her side.

Joey Jones continued her good form for the Panthers with 16 points, but her side had no answer for Howe who led all scorers with 23 and Saints held on 51-43.
