Champ Men defeated Hawthorn, 99-91


An entertaining game on a cold night with high percentage scoring saw the Champ Men take their 5th win of season 2021.


Hawthorn came out firing and had an early 8 point lead in the first quarter before the Broncos pushed through the last couple of minutes to lead by 1 point at the end of the quarter thanks to a tip-in by Liam Killey (31-30). 


Each team traded baskets for the majority of the second quarter, with momentum consistently swinging between them with the score being tied 7 times. Hawthorn ended the half taking a 2 point lead (56-58). 


The scoring dropped off in the second half, with the coaches focusing on defensive stops. Hawthorn extended their lead to 9 points half way through the third quarter when the Broncos again picked it up to cut the lead back to 2 with Shayan Mahboobi’s (9 points for there quarter) layup right on the buzzer. 


The Final Quarter was even right up to just under 2 minutes to go, with the score tied at 91-91, as Jake Martin hit a big 3 with a foul shot and another 2 points to bring our lead to 6 points. Shayan Mahboobi then hit 2 free throws to seal the game by 8 points.

Hume City Broncos big v

Champ Women defeated Hawthorn, 63-54


A completely different game style from the previous men’s game – this one was all about defence. 


Both teams were evenly matched throughout most of the match, trading baskets as they came. Hawthorn had a 2 point lead at the end of the first quarter (12-14) and then the scoring really dried up in the second quarter, with only 14 points scored between both teams, as the Broncos took a slight 2 point lead into the half time break.


The second half was much better offensively as both teams started to put a few baskets together. The Broncos got out to an 11 point lead before Hawthorn rallied in the last couple of minutes to bring the end of the third to a 40-40 scoreline.


A tense stadium saw the Broncos eventually pull away from Hawthorn thanks to a big quarter from Tash Overby (9 points) hitting a few crucial shots. Up by 5 points with less than a minute to go, Hawthorn were forced to foul in which Jess Azzopardi and Sophie Byrnes hit 5 of 6 free throws to seal the game.


Top Performers:

Jess Azzopardi: 15 points, 6 rebounds, 4 steals

Tash Overby: 12 points, 2 assists

Youth Women defeated by Nunawading, 63-66 // defeated Kilsyth 65-48

Going 1-1 from a competitive weekend for the Youth Women, taking their record to 10-2. 

Nunawading are a tough team currently sitting 2nd on the Terril ladder and this loss can act as a good reminder for the Youth Women to continue to push and play well.

The Broncos had a 4 point lead at half-time but had a lapse in the third quarter being outscored by 11 points and were down by 7 points at the final break. They couldn’t make up those final points in the final seconds though. A huge score by Harmony Harder put the Broncos within 2 points with 40 seconds to go but in the end were forced to foul and Nunawading hit the foul shots to take the win.

Top Performers:

Harmony Harder: 10 points, 10 rebounds

Jayde Kirk: 6 points, 13 rebounds, 5 assists


Dissapointed with the previous night, the Youth Women came out and dominated in the first half against Kilsyth: scoring 36-13 putting the result beyond doubt early on.

Kilsyth came out competitive in the second half and won the last quarter, however the result was already decided by then.

Top Performers:

Tash Overby: 15 points, 4 rebounds

Harmony Harder: 9 points, 15 rebounds, 3 steals

Youth Men defeated by Altona, 102-104


Last time these 2 teams met in Round 4, the Broncos took away a 1 point win. This time (unfortunately for us) the Broncos lost by 2 points.


The Broncos took an early lead in the first quarter with a 6 point lead at the break with a late 3 pointer from Jed Shennan.


Altona quickly made up those 6 points in the second quarter to tie before a scoring drought of just over 2 minutes, which then resumed with 4 minutes to go in the quarter.


From then on it was extremely tight game with the lead changing over 14 times. In the final quarter though, Altona got out to a 9 point lead in which the Broncos nearly overcome in the final seconds but unfortunately just couldn’t get there.
