Youth League Women
Bellarine Storm 78 defeated Blackburn 56
Led by ‘Cyclone’ Carly Sanders with 31 points and 11 boards, the unbeaten start for our Youth League Women continued on Saturday night against Blackburn.
Alannah Northam was also instrumental in the win with 19 points for the night as the Storm cruised through the game to score win number 5 for the season.
Another highlight was the performance of Millie Sibley who picked up 5 assists in her first game for the Storm this season.
Despite Blackburn matching the Storm for scoring in the last term, the damage was already done by Bellarine, coming away with the win
Division 1 Women
Bellarine Storm 48 lost to Craigieburn 64
It was a tough night ate the office for the Division 1 Women as they went into Saturday night’s contest against Craigieburn missing the services of Chantelle Hall and Olivia Virt and in the end that proved to be the difference in this one.
The visitors were out of the blocks early, to lead 25 to 17 at the first break, however, from there on, it was all Craigieburn as the Storm struggled to find scoring opportunities in offence for much of the night.
Captain Jaimee Crombie fought hard all night to keep her side in the match, finishing with 19 points for the match, however, that wasn’t enough to stave off defeat.
Youth League Men
Bellarine Storm 98 defeated Southern Peninsula 56
Our Youth League Men have found themselves in a real purple patch at the moment as they stretch their winning streak to four, accounting for Southern Peninsula by 42 points on Sunday afternoon.
With Sam Johns stepping into the Coaching chair, the Storm didn’t miss a beat, stunning the Sharks to pretty much have the win sealed by half time.
Clancy Whelan was the star for the Storm this week, with 24 points for the game and he got great support from the team, with Vincent Whelan (17), Ethan Nicholls (13), Jarvis Gleeson (12) and Ethan McDonald (11) sharing amongst the scoring.
Division 1 Men
Bellarine Storm 86 lost to Bulleen 87
Heartbreak for our Division 1 Men as they went down to Bulleen by just 1 point on Saturday night against Bulleen at Bulleen.
Having played a very even contest back a couple of weeks ago, where the Storm came out on top, it was another close battle all night in this one.
With seconds to go, Max Kos converted two shots at the free throw line to draw the Storm 1 point behind the hosts as Bulleen called a time out. Unfortunately, the Storm couldn’t come up with a turnover in the time remaining allowing the Boomers to hang on by the smallest of margins.
Leigh Saffin and Max Kos led the scoring for the Storm with 16 each for the night.
