Coaches Comments Matt Paps - Head Coach Championship Women Coming off a disappointing loss your Champ Women are looking to bounce back. This week we’re welcoming Warrnambool to GESAC who are looking to bounce back themselves. It should be good contest like it was last time. #GoCougars

Maine Maybank - Head Coach Championship Men I’m really happy with the way the team has responded in the last two rounds on the defensive side of the ball. The coaches and I have put in new defensive concepts that have started paying dividends when we needed it most. Our offence has been the best in the league through the first 10 rounds and I expect the number to jump and have nothing but improvements going forward. This Saturday we meet The Corio Bay Stingrays at the Den which will be another tough test for us. I know Well be focused, locked in, and up for the challenge Good luck to all the Cougar teams this weekend! #Cougarpride

Southern Peninsula 61 def by Keilor 96 Twenty-three points from Aneta Bandilovski guided Keilor to a big win over Southern Peninsula. Bandilovski combined with Erin Bollmann (21 points) and Chloe Hildebrand (17 points) to create a lethal trio on offence. The Thunder outscored the Sharks 44-16 in the paint and 35-7 from turnovers. They trailed by four points at quarter time but scored over 20 points in the next three quarters to come away with a 35point win. Megan Smith was gallant for the Sharks, shooting 71% from the field for her 17 points. Casey 72 def by Werribee 81 The Devils asserted their dominance early with a 29-20 run in the first term. The lead was cut to eight points at half time and seven points in the third term, before a 19-17 run in the fourth sealed their nine-point win. Alisia Jenkins starred for the Devils with 25 points, 10 rebounds and five assists, while Sarah Halejian top scored for the Cavs with 27 points.

Sunbury 99 def Warrnambool 46 Sunbury had little trouble beating Warrnambool on Sunday. The Jets dominated from the opening buzzer to come away with a 53-point win. The Jets outscored the Mermaids 64-20 in the paint and 28-6 from turnovers. Orla O’Reilly top scored with 23 points, while Geralynn Leaupepe had 19 points, seven rebounds and three assists off the bench. McKinnon 71 def by Hume City 81 It was a tight affair at GESAC as Hume City claimed a 10-point win over McKinnon. The Broncos led by 10 points at quarter time but had their lead cut to three points at the half. Hume City extended their lead to eight points in the third term and then finished the game with a 10-point win. BreAnna Brock (30 points and 13 rebounds) had a double-double, while Nicole Zammit had 18 points, nine rebounds and five assists.

Whittlesea 68 def by Bulleen 72 31 points from Rachel Bell was not enough for the Pacers to beat Bulleen. Bell was a lone figure for the Pacers, whereas the Boomers worked as a team to come away with the win. Casey Valenti-Paea top scored for the Boomers with 23 points, while Alexandra Keating had 14 points and nine rebounds. The Boomers made the Pacers pay for the errors, scoring 24 points from turnovers. They also had 61 rebounds and seven steals.

Top Performers BreAnna Brock (Hume City) – 30pts, 12-21FG, 13reb, 3stl Sarah Halejian (Casey) – 27pts, 3reb, 4ast, 3stl Alisia Jenkins (Werribee) – 25pts, 10reb, 5ast, 3stl Aneta Bandilovski (Keilor) – 23pts, 3reb, 5stl


Sunbury and Keilor open the round at Boardman Stadium in a blockbuster 2nd v 3rd clash. The Jets are absolutely flying, riding a six-game win streak, coming off 73 and 53-point wins in their last two weeks. The Thunder have only dropped two games for the season themselves and will be no walkover. McKinnon meet Warrnambool at GESAC with the latter still looking to earn their first win of the season. The Cougars have been inconsistent in 2019 and are strangely yet to win a game at home this season. The Mermaids have dropped 10 on the trot. Whittlesea host Casey at Mill Park Basketball Stadium in a clash between two sides looking to really catapult their campaigns. The Pacers are sitting eighth on the table at 2-7, while the Cavs are just one spot above them at 4-5. Casey have dropped five in a row. Werribee meet Southern Peninsula at Eagle Stadium to continue the Saturday night fixture. The Devils are the form team of the competition, sitting at the top of the standings with an 8-1 record, including seven-straight wins. The Sharks have been solid enough at 5-5 and had their recent win streak ended last week at the hands of Keilor. Hume City and Whittlesea clash on Sunday to open day two of the Round 11 fixture. The Broncos started the season off strong but have since trailed off a little, dropping three of their last five. The Pacers could have the tired legs coming off a Saturday game. Bulleen and Werribee meet at East Doncaster Secondary College to cap off the round. The Boomers desperately need a win here, with their season quickly slipping away at 2-8. It will be tough going against a red-hot Devils outfit.

Corio Bay 99 def by Werribee 106 Werribee pulled off a win for the ages against Corio Bay. Scores were level at three-quarter-time, but the Devils soon gained the lead by outscoring the Stingrays 31-24 in the last quarter. Konor Kulas starred for the Devils with 37 points and 13 rebounds, while teammate David Shepard had 31 points and 16 rebounds. Trae Young did his best to win the game for the Stingrays by scoring 39 points in 40 minutes on court. Hawthorn 101 def by Hume City 109 Overtime was required to separate the two teams. The Broncos trailed by four points at three quarter time, but outscored the Magic 23-19 in the last quarter to send the game into the extra period. The Broncos stormed out of the blocks to outscore the Magic 20-12 and come away with an eight-point win. Jake Martin top scored for the Broncos with 33 points and 13 rebounds, while Mackuei Puondak had 21 points and 11 rebounds off the bench. McKinnon 110 def Blackburn 90 Thirty-three points in the final term guided McKinnon to a comfortable win over Blackburn. The Cougars trailed by four points at half time, but quickly overturned the deficit to lead by seven points in the third term. The lead then stretched to 20 points as they went on a 33-20 run in the final term. Eric Williams starred for the Cougars with 31 points, while Jake Heath had 25 points for the visitors.

Casey 92 def Chelsea 69 Chelsea were no match for Casey who produced a superb display to beat the Gulls by 23 points. The Cavs shot 52% from the field and had 50 rebounds and 20 assists in a dominant all-around display. Raheem Lemons had a doubledouble (22 points and 14 rebounds), while Colin Voss had 22 points for the Gulls. Chelsea 83 def by Keilor 89 BJ Symons and Michael Anderson combined for 52 points in Keilor’s six-point win over Chelsea. The duo played a crucial role in countering Colin Voss who had 33 points for the Gulls. Both sides were matched evenly in the contest and it proved to be Keilor’s ability to score inside the paint that decided the outcome. The Thunder outscored Chelsea 44-36 inside the paint and 24-14 in fast break points. Blackburn 105 def Corio Bay 76 Blackburn scored over 20 points in all four quarters to record a 29-point win. The Vikings were dominant on all the major statistics, collecting more rebounds (49-44), assists (21-18) and steals (10-6) and shooting 44% from the field. Jake Heath starred for the Vikings with 35 points, five rebounds and eight assists, while Khail Brown had 14 points and 11 rebounds.

Top Performers Konor Kulas (Werribee) – 37pts, 13reb, 5ast, 13-20FG Trae Young (Corio Bay) – 39pts, 8reb, 7ast, 2stl Jake Heath (Blackburn) – 35pts, 5reb, 8ast, 2stl Jake Martin (Hume City) – 33pts, 9-17FG, 13reb


Top of the ladder McKinnon host second last Corio Bay on Saturday night at GESAC. The Cougars enter the game as favourites having won 12 of their 13 games this season. Eric Williams scored 31 points for the Cougars in Round 10 and could play a key role this week. Corio Bay enter the game off the back of a seven-game losing run. Last week the Stingrays suffered defeats to Werribee and Blackburn and now sit only percentage above last place. Blackburn could climb off the bottom of the ladder with a win over Hume City. The Vikings won their second game of the season last week and now sit only percentage below Corio Bay. Jake Heath starred for the Vikings in their victory over the Stingrays with 35 points and eight rebounds. Their task will be difficult as they face the Broncos who are third and have won four of their last five games. Jordan Coleman has excelled this season, averaging 18.8 points per game. Chelsea will hope to end their four-game losing streak against Werribee on Saturday night. The Gulls sit seventh on the ladder and had poor results against Casey and Keilor in round 10. Werribee won their fourth game of the season last week. The Devils have won three of their last four games and enter the game as the team in better form. The Broncos return to the court on Sunday to host Keilor who have won their last two games. The Thunder sit fourth with an 8-5 record and are 3-3 on the road. Last week they beat Chelsea by six points, courtesy of 26 points from BJ Symons and Mike Anderson. Corio Bay and Chelsea will back up their Saturday matches to meet for the third time this season. The Gulls won both of their previous encounters this season by an average of 22.5 points. The round concludes with Hawthorn hosting Casey at the Boroondara Sports Complex. The Magic have dropped down to fifth after consecutive defeats in recent weeks. In that same period, Casey have won their last four games and have moved to second on the ladder. Brandon Polk has starred for the Cavs this season, averaging 18.9 points per game.

Coaches Comments Nathan Geer - Head Coach Youth League One Women

This week see’s us playing camberwell for the 3rd and final time this season. Camberwell have been doing a great job all season, proving themselves to be one of the best in the league. Having had a close game previously, we will be looking forward to the challenge ahead as we try and steal 1 back of them. Go Cougars!

Josh Martin - Head Coach Youth League Champ Men The VYC Men come into this weekend having played probably their best all-around game of the season last Saturday night against Bulleen. It was a real team effort with all players contributing, including some valuable minutes from our younger players. Our returning college players Kobe and Mitch have fitted in nicely and their addition has made a difference at both ends of the court. Sunday will be the second game of yet another double header for us, having had an important game against Hawthorn on the Saturday night. Hopefully we will get to GESAC on Sunday with one win under our belt and be looking to make it two out of two against Keilor. We cannot take the Thunder lightly - as recently they have been in the middle of some very competitive games against the top teams in our conference. A quick shout out to Matt Tolnai who will be out injured for several weeks – having cracked his sternum taking a charge a couple of games ago. How he got injured really exemplifies how Matt plays the game, and we all hope he gets back on the court very soon Go Cougars!

Eltham 77 def Corio Bay 55 Eltham were too strong for Corio Bay, beating the Stingrays by 22 points. The Wildcats won the game in the third quarter when they scored 29 points and held the Stingrays to two points to open up a 24-point lead. Ellen Horsley starred for Eltham with 23 points and 18 rebounds, but it was Lily Brancatisano who stole the show by collecting a triple-double (14 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists).

McKinnon 75 def by Craigieburn 79 Craigieburn came from behind to beat McKinnon by four points. The Eagles trailed by one-point at half time, which then increased to five points in the third term. However, the Eagles scored 32 points in the fourth quarter to clinch a come from behind victory. Carley Cranston had 21 points, 13 rebounds and six assists, while Megan Butler had 19 points, five rebounds and two assists.

Warrandyte 70 def by Casey 88 Casey came from behind to beat the Venom at the Warrandyte Sports Complex. The Cavs trailed by three points at quarter time but overturned the deficit with a 19-11 run in the second term. The lead extended to seven points in the third term and then finished at 18 points in the last. The Cavs shot 50% from the field and 66 points in the paint. Lauren Tuplin top scored with 30 points, while Renee Dabas shot at 80% from the field for her 11 points.

Casey 61 def Camberwell 52 Casey concluded the round with a nine-point win over Camberwell. The Cavs scored 18 points from turnovers and 17 fast break points. They were strong at both ends of the court and collected 52 rebounds and 15 steals. Kim Shankland led the way for the Cavs with 13 points and seven rebounds, while Zoe Scott had 18 points and 11 rebounds for the Dragons.

Geelong 51 def Keilor 42 Geelong came out on top in front of their fans at the AWA Allicance Bank Stadium. Both teams struggled on offence in the first quarter and combined for nine points in the term. There was a slight improvement in the second term but again they only combined for 17 points. The Thunder led 14-12 at half time, but lost their lead in the third quarter as the Supercats added 21 points to lead by five points. The lead stretched to nine points in the fourth as the Supercats powered home to win.

Top Performers Lauren Tuplin (Casey) – 30pts, 13-18FG, 6reb, 5ast Carley Cranston (Craigieburn) – 21pts, 13reb, 6ast, 6stl Lily Brancatisano (Eltham) – 14pts, 10reb, 12ast, 6stl


Casey and Corio Bay open up the round at Casey Stadium in a 1st v 9th clash, which is also the only Saturday game of the round. The Cavaliers are running hot, riding a seven-game win streak to sit on top of the ladder. Meanwhile, the Stingrays have suffered nine-straight losses and have not won on the road this season. Corio Bay and Craigieburn go head-to-head at Geelong Basketball Netball Centre. Corio Bay return home after their trip to Casey, coming up against an Eagles side that has won two of their last five to sit 4-7 on the season. Eltham and Geelong face off at Eltham High School in a 7th v 5th clash as both sides look to launch their seasons. The Wildcats have won just one of their last five, while Geelong are yet to record a win on the road in 2019. McKinnon and Camberwell meet at GESAC in what looks to be a one-sided affair on paper. The Cougars are sitting 1-9 having dropped their last nine games. The Dragons are sitting pretty in third place at 9-3 but did go down to the league-leading Casey last week. Keilor and Warrandyte close out the round at Keilor Basketball Stadium in a 2nd v 4th clash. After starting the season on fire, the Thunder have since slowed down slightly, dropping two of their last four games. The Venom are 3-1 in their last four and with an 8-2 record overall.

Hawthorn 84 def Blackburn 62 A solid team effort saw Hawthorn ease past Blackburn by 22 points. Five Magic players scored in double figures with Ajuong Maker leading the way with 15 points off the bench. Jack Roberts top scored for Blackburn with 22 points but needed more from his teammates with only one other reaching 10.

Eltham 86 def Waverley 72 A strong second half saw Eltham defeat Waverley by 14 points. Both sides had five players score double figures with no one scoring more than 15. Christian Yammouni reached the mark for Eltham and Malek Bar the same for Waverley. In what was a fairly even game, Eltham’s 46% from the field to Waverley’s 41% proved to be the difference.

Diamond Valley 49 def by Dandenong 75 Dandenong cruised past Diamond Valley, winning by 26 points. Four of the five Rangers starters scored in double figures with Jake Tranter top scoring with 13. Diamond Valley struggled from the field, going at 30%. Luke Liesegang led the way with 14 points.

Sherbrooke 80 def by Hawthorn 115 Hawthorn scored at will against Sherbrooke on their way to winning by 35 points. Hawthorn made 60% of their two-point shots to Sherbrooke’s 45% on their way to the win. Joe Furphy had 26 points and 11 rebounds, with Ethan Delzoppo scoring 24 off the bench. Samual Carl scored 19 points to lead Sherbrooke’s scoring.

Kilsyth 65 def by Nunawading 74 After a poor start, Nunawading overran Kilsyth to win by nine points. Remo Simankevicius was dominant for the Spectres with 16 points and 15 rebounds.
