Division 1 Women
Bellarine Storm 54 lost to Camberwell 77
In a disappointing result for us, our Division 1 Women were no match for a well drilled Camberwell side on Saturday night.
Early foul trouble for the Storm made things tough with rotations and a lack of scoring options in the second and third term hurt the cause greatly.
The Storm were outscored 45 to 17 in the middle part of the game, before finishing much better with a 21 to 9 final term, however, the damage was already done.
Olivia Virt was best for the Storm with 12 points and 9 boards for the game.
We also welcomed Charlotte Armstrong to the team, after arriving in town on Friday and she immediately made her presence felt with an impressive block early in the contest.
Youth League Men
Bellarine Storm 76 lost to Whittlesea 86
The Bellarine Storm Youth League Men made the difficult trip to Whittlesea on Saturday night and unfortunately, they couldn’t come away with the points, falling to the Pacers by 10.
Trailing by 18 points at the last break, the Storm lifted a gear in the last to outscore the Pacers 24 to 16, however, having given the home side such a big break, it proved to be the difference in the end.
Despite the loss, there was still some good things to come out of the contest with 5 players in double figures for the Storm on the night.
Jarvis Gleeson finished the night with 16 points and 9 boards for the Storm, whilst Ethan Nicholls continues his nice vein of recent form to lead the scoring with 17 for the night.
Division 1 Men
Bellarine Storm defeated Warrandyte
Unfortunately, due to problems with the statistics from Saturday night, we can’t give you much in the way of detail for this game.
The good news is, though, that the Storm were able to hold off the home side and get the all important win by 2 points in the end.
Youth League Women
Bellarine Storm 72 lost to Albury/Wodonga 74
As they say in the classics, all good things must come to an end and so it’s the case on Sunday afternoon for our Youth League Women as they made the long journey up to Albury for their first defeat of the season.
After a bright start in the opening quarter to lead by 15 points at the first break, the Storm lost their way in the second, to allow the home side back into the match, to trail by just 4 points at the main break.
In a very even second half, both sides fought hard to gain the ascendency in this one, with Albury/Wodonga making their run in the last term to whittle away the Storm’s hold on the match and cause the boiler to win by 4 points.
Piper Copeland led the charge for the Storm, finishing with 19 points for the day, whilst Sienna Quinlan chipped in with 15 points for the cause. Carly Sanders controlled the boards for the Storm, pulling down 15 rebounds for the match, to go with her 12 points.
