Ohhhhh Stormy’s as happy as Albo this week, after a dominant Weekend for the Storm in Round 9, topping the Polls with 5 from 5!
Now, to keep the momentum rolling!
Youth League Women
Saturday 28th May V Western Port 5:00pm Somerville Recreation Centre
Stormy has news for ScoMo, if he thinks he’s a bulldozer, he’s got nothing on our Youth League Women who ploughed through their opposition last week to record a couple of sizeable wins.
I never get carried away (yeah, right!) about games before they happen, however, Stormy feels there might be some pain coming Western Port’s way this weekend!
Barring an unforeseen miracle intervention, Stormy can’t see our ladies dropping this one.
Youth League Men
Saturday 28th May v Mornington 6:00pm Mornington Basketball Stadium
Sunday 29th May v Albury/Wodonga 2:00pm Bellarine Secondary College
It’s shaping as a big weekend for our Youth League Men and one which will be important in terms of establishing the pecking order for the remainder of the season.
On Saturday night, the Storm travel to Mornington to take on Mornington, who sit just below us on the Watson Conference table, which means this is a must win battle for both sides.
Our Youth League Men were in super form last week as they disposed of Wangaratta in a balanced, four quarter effort. More of the same will be needed in this one, to get the points.
Depending on the previous night’s results, today’s game against Albury/Wodonga may become even more important, should we drop Satrurday night’s contest.
This will also be a good opportunity for the Storm to measure themselves against the top team in the Terrill Conference.
The Storm starting 5 is, in Stormy’s ‘humble’ opinion, one of the best going round and provide many different looks and options for opponents to face.
Stormy feels this will be a close one in the end or in the words of Antony Green, it’s “too close to call” however, I’m backing our candidates to just pip the visitors at the post.
Division 1 Men
Sunday 29th May v Southern Peninsula 2:00pm Hillview Stadium
Our Division 1 Men are starting to gain some momentum in recent weeks, in the middle of a group of very winnable games, including this one.
Rohan Jarvie really stood up for the Storm last week and his presence at both ends of the court will be important again this week, as will the defensive work of Nathan Gronbeck, who is putting together a fine season. The inclusion of Marko Vekic in recent weeks has been a big plus to the team as well and his presence will be a key factor here as well, with Stormy tipping a Storm win.
Division 1 Women
Stormy hears on the grapevine that there’s a special guest court announcer for our Youth League Men this weekend, so just take it easy on the young fella and get around him!
