STORM BOY’S VIEW: Week 4 10th & 11th April 2020

Howdy Storm fans, hope you enjoyed the weekend off for the Easter break and got filled to the eyeballs with chocolate and hot cross buns!

We’re back into it this weekend, so let’s take a look at what the weekend holds.


V Warrandyte, Saturday 10th April 8.00pm, Warrandyte Sports Complex

A road trip to face a talented Warrandyte Venom on Saturday night promises to be a very entertaining contest.

The Venom are expected to be one of the sides competing at the pointy end of the season and a win against them will stand the Storm in good stead.

After winning their opening 3 games, the Venom came unstuck against our cross town rivals last round.

The Storm just couldn’t get the job done last round against Camberwell, running out of petrol tickets in the last quarter to go down by 4 points after holding a 9 point break at the last change.

Rohan Jarvie continued his nice early season form and will again have an important role to play for the Storm to get the win.

The addition of Lewie Varley is a big addition and will be a major factor in the outcome of this game.

On the other side of the coin, the Storm will need to keep a close eye on both Cody Perry, who has had a bright start to another season and also Bryan Moore who has been scoring and hitting the boards pretty hard in the first three rounds.

Stormy gets the feeling that our boys will be able to bounce back and get another important early season win.


V Melbourne Uni, Sunday 11th April 3.00pm, Bellarine Sports Centre


V Melbourne Uni, Sunday 11th April 1.00pm, Bellarine Sports Centre

Our Division 1 women came back to earth with a bit of a thud, lowering their colours to Camberwell last round, in a game where the visitors dominated the contest.

The Storm get a real chance to bounce back against Melbourne Uni on Sunday as the Uni girls are finding it hard going in the opening rounds.

Our girls are a very talented group of youth and experience and are likely to be better set than their opposition on Sunday.

But as we all know, never say never in Big V basketball, so the Storm will still need to bring their best game and not relax.

Emmie O’Nial is doing it all for the Uni and her battle with Bellarine’s forwards will be a key to this contest.

Stormy thinks Bellarine will have too many options for the Uni girls and be able to grab their first home win for the season.

Get along to Bellarine Sports Centre to cheer hard for our Storm Girls.


V Coburg, Sunday 11th April 11.00am @ Bellarine Sports Centre

Coach Leigh Dawson and his players would have really enjoyed their Easter break, on the back of a good win against Mornington in Round 3.

The best thing to come out of this game was that our young Storm Men were challenged all the way down the stretch, yet still found the poise to get the job done and get the ‘W’.

This win will instil a lot of faith in this group, in what is a crazily even Youth League competition this season.

The Giants usually have a young, athletic line up that can be unpredictable at times, meaning you just don’t know what you’re going to get.

The Ethan’s (Nicholls & McDonald) have been important so far this season and have been getting good support from Kody Wilson and Jarvis Gleeson and they will need to be front and centre again this round.

With last week’s gutsy win under their belts, the Storm Youth League Men look set to make it 3 on the spin on Sunday.

There we go for another week, Stormy’s off to search for some left over easter eggs.  Good luck to all three of our sides on the weekend.

Storm Boy…..OUT!
