Youth Men defeated Geelong & Bendigo
84-81 (Geelong), 90-72 (Bendigo)
An important win on the road for the Youth Men Broncos, coming up 4 point winners against Geelong.
Elijah went bang in the first quarter, scoring a big 18 points to get the Broncos rolling.
Overall the Geelong game was quite competitive and the Broncos had to hold their nerve in the final quarter to eventually take the win.
It was a different story on Sunday as the Youth Men dominated against Bendigo, taking an 18 point win to sit 5th on the YL1M ladder.
Elijah Saifaleupolu: 26 points, 4 rebounds, 3 steals (Geelong)

Derhyse Matautia: 14 points, 11 assits, 9 steals (Bendigo)
Champ Men defeated by Western Port
A disappointing loss for the Champ Men Broncos on their trip down to Somerville Recreation Centre on Sunday. Western Port came out strong scoring 30 points in the first quarter. The Broncos made up the deficit, only down by 5 points at half time, and it was a tied game at the final break.
The match was still even with 7 minutes to go, but then Western Port went on a 16-3 run to get up by 15 points with 2 minutes to go, in which time eventually ran out for the Broncos.
Without Liam Killey and Shayan Mahboobi made it a bit harder for the Broncos… but hopefully they return to court soon!
Joel Rimes: 13 points, 4 rebounds
Anthony Dell’Orso: 16 points, 9 rebounds
Champ Women defeated by Casey
Casey just dominated this game from the first few minutes, taking advantage of our young and undermanned Champ Women’s team.
Ellen Wright unfortunately injured her knee with 30 seconds to go in the last quarter, adding to an already deep injury list for the Broncos – fingers crossed for her that her injury does not mean an extended stay on the sidelines.
Sophie Byrnes: 11 points, 3 assists
Hailey Wynd: 8 points, 10 rebounds
Youth Women defeated by Knox and Sunbury
62-75 (Knox), 79-98 (Sunbury)
A surprise disappointing weekend for the Youth Women, going their first non-lockdown weekend without a win.
Hopefully these games will be a reminder to continue to work hard with finals coming up around the corner.
Knox took almost 20 more shots than the Broncos, giving themselves more opportunity to score, with 1 player having 6 three pointers. The Broncos on the other hand just couldn’t get any offensive flow into the game.
In the Sunbury game, the Youth Women actually started off the game quite well, with an 11 point lead at quarter time. But from then on, Sunbury went on a scoring rampage with 28 points in the second quarter, 26 points in the third, and a massive 34 points in the last quarter.
Tegan Hindle: 20 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists (Knox)
Harmony Harder: 12 points, 16 rebounds (Knox)
Emma Povh: 21 points, 3 assists (Sunbury)
Oriana Siamoa: 14 points, 4 rebounds (Sunbury)
