STAWELL Wildcats did their association proud last weekend when they fought to the finish against strong Mount Gambier teams.

Both the ladies and the men’s tams went down to Mount Gambier as expected, but the margin did come as a bit of a surprise.

The ladies got the night underway and started in a blaze of glory.

Grace Bibby scored six points in the opening quarter and coach Rhi Davis scored four, to see the Wildcats in with a chance at quarter time.

It was a second quarter fade out that proved costly for the Wildcats as the Lakers went on a 9-0 run in the first two minutes.

Wildcats called a time out and found their first score of the term when Bibby was on the end of a baseline play.

Davis scored with 47 seconds remaining on the clock, but that was it for Wildcats for the term.

After a positive first quarter they went into the rooms confident they could claw their way back into the contest.

The second half was much like the first quarter, Stawell remained in touch, but couldn’t make inroads into the deficit.

The final score for the match was 40-65.

Bibby finished with 15 points and was the best for Wildcats, while Lakers guard Briana Walters was the leading scoring on the court with 23.

Davis was happy with the effort and intent of her players, but said they needed to string together a full four quarters if they are to win a game.

“Our intensity from previous games certainly improved,” Davis said.

“It was the second quarter where we let ourselves down. We got lazy and you can’t afford to do that against good teams.”

Lakers backed up with a game against Horsham on Sunday where they won again.

Stawell will meet Horsham in just over a week.

Stawell men had Mount Gambier slightly nervous as they held a six point buffer over the Wildcats going into the last change.

While many in the Stawell team looked a little unsure under the immense pressure, the less experienced Eugene Omiona, Shane Field and Rory Jones showed no fear.

Omiona kepted the Wildcats in the game with a couple of clutch three pointers.

Field and Jones were tough in and under and provided the team with rebounds and scores from their bustling work, while Joel Freeland was consistent across both ends of the floor.

Wildcats started poorly and finished the same way, but throughout the middle quarters, they gave the reigning premiers a scare.

Mount Gambier’s coach was calm until the third term when the frustration of his team’s performance was getting the better of him.

Stawell coach Ben Leslie was happy with the overall performance despite losing what was a winnable game.

“We matched them for more than two quarters and that is a huge positive for us,” Leslie said.

“Their class shone through in that final quarter. A win against Horsham the next day sums up just how good they are.”
