Youth Men defeated by Craigieburn, 81-83

Champ Men defeated McKinnon, 94-78

 

Another win for the Champ Men on the road against the (then) top placed McKinnon. Last time the Broncos played McKinnon at McKinnon, it was the 2019 Grand Final series loss, so the Broncos wanted to take this win acting as a little bit of revenge. 

 

Shayan Mahboobi had the scoreboard ticking over as he scored the first 9 points for the Broncos helping the team to get out to a 7 point early lead. 

McKinnon pegged the lead back to 2 points at the end of the quarter.

 

It was quite an even second quarter with the lead changing 5 times but with Pete Puondak getting in foul trouble, McKinnon took a 1 point lead into the half.

The third quarter was almost a mirror image of the second, with a few lead changes but with the Broncos taking a 4 point lead into the final break, with Jake Martin dominating the quarter with 12 points.

 

The Broncos were holding onto a 4 point lead before Pete Puondak came alive with 4×3 pointers in a  row to put the lead out to 12 points, as McKinnon couldn’t capitalise on the other end.

 

This win now makes it 4 in a row as the Champ Men now take on Wyndham (placed 2nd on the ladder) this Saturday night.

Champ Women defeated Whittlesea, 80-59

 

2 wins in a row now for the Champ Women as they took a solid win against Whittlesea. 

 

Whittlesea kept up with the Broncos for the first 5 minutes of the game, with the score at 10-10, before the Broncos hit a couple of 3 pointers to open up an 8 point lead at the end of the quarter.

 

The Broncos continued from where they left off putting points on the scoreboard and quickly getting the lead to +20 points and sealing the game by half time.

 

Whittlesea rallied to win the second half overall, but the damage was already done.

 

It was a solid team effort, with 5 out of a possible 8 players scored in double digits, with 4 players sitting out injured.

 

The Champ Women will now come up against Wyndham in an important game to keep in touch with the top 5.

The road trip up to Ballarat was a different story, the first half being quite even, with Ballarat taking a 1 point lead to half time.

 

The half-time break must have done wonders for the Youth Women, as they quickly scored 7 points to take the lead and continued to push throughout the quarter with a 14 point lead at the final break (27-12 quarter).

 

Within a few minutes into the final quarter, the lead got out to 18 points and the result was done.  A dominant second half proved why the Youth Women currently sit on top of the VYCW ladder.

Youth Men defeated by Craigieburn, 81-83

 

A tough loss for the Youth Men going down by 2 points.

 

Undermanned with 3 players to Champ Men, and a couple to injury meant only 8 players stepped out onto the court.

 

A great battle nevertheless, with Craigieburn leading by 13 points in the third quarter before a comeback from the Broncos to bring the game back to level. Unfortunately the Broncos just couldn’t get that last shot to win.
