Wowee! What a weekend for our Stormers as they put together a weekend snaring 3 from 3!!
DIVISION 1 MEN
V Camberwell, Saturday 27th March 7.30pm @ Bellarine Sports Centre
This is a real chance for Beaug’s boys to make it a hat trick of wins to open the season and a first win at home for 2021.
The boys went all the way to Shepparton last weekend, minus Jason Reardon and were still strong enough to get the job done, with Lewie Varley, Rohan Jarvie and Rob Harding leading the charge.
Whilst the Storm get Reardon back this week, Varley and Jesse Burn will be unavailable.
This weeks opponent Camberwell haven’t exactly had a blinding start to 2021, having lost both their games last week.
Storm Boy doesn’t see how the Dragons can manage enough ‘fire’ to scorch the Storm and our boys should come away with another ‘W’ to keep their perfect start going.
DIVISION 1 WOMEN
V Camberwell, Saturday 27th March 5.30pm @ Bellarine Sports Centre
Stormy said last week that there was a lot to like about our Division 1 Women and didn’t they prove him right, marching up to Mildura and coming away with a big win.
After trailing by 12 points at the half, our ladies ‘Stormed’ home in the second half to grab the points to kick start their 2021 campaign.
This weeks opponent have split their games this season with a thumping of Warrnambool in Round 1 before Warrandyte outlasted them last weekend.
The Dragons have some good shooters and the Storm will need to be on their toes but by the same token, Camberwell will need to beware of what Bellarine bring to the table as well in Scannell, Virt, Rolph and company and Stormy is feeling confident that our ladies can get the job done again at home.
YOUTH LEAGUE 2 MEN
V Mornington Sunday 28th March 2.00pm @ Mornington Basketball Stadium
A great bounce back by our Youth League Men last week to dispose of Sunbury at Sunbury (don’t we love that!).
Brodie Nielson lit it up for 21 points to lead the charge and got great support from Ethan Nicholls and Jarvis Gleeson.
Another road trip this Sunday, down to Mornington, in what promises to be a tough contest for our young Men as the Breakers have started the season well, with a couple of tough wins.
If the Storm can nullify the impact of Lochie Baczyk, who had a big weekend out last round with 41 points over his side’s two matches and also contributed 13 boards in their Sunday game last week, they’ll go a long way to icing this one.
Coach Dawson will be looking for a similar effort to last weekend with plenty of contribution across the board both in scoring and on the boards, then they should be able to make it back-to-back wins and that’s exactly what Storm Boy is feeling in his bones.
Looking forward to seeing all you Storm fans getting along tomorrow night to cheer our Division 1 teams on!
