On Sunday our Seahawks and the Thunder face each other for the second time this season after meeting in round 8 at Cornubia Park.
The women's game was taken out by the reigning NBL1 North champions Logan 94-78.
Our SmartSkill Seahawks got out to a great start opening an 11-2 lead, triggering an early time-out from Logan. Logan would recover and would go into the main break 7 points up.
The third quarter was a good one for Logan, limiting our team to 13 points while scoring 22 of their own and that would prove to be enough for the Thunder to secure the win. Dani Bayes would lead the Thunder with 30 points off the bench, while Mikaela Ruef would post 16 points and 23 rebounds.
Lauren Müller and Doniyah Cliney would lead our women with 18 points apiece in the matchup while Katelyn Donovan chimed in with 16 points from the bench.
Our men would knock off 2021 Semi Finalists Logan 95-78.
Our men came out strong in the first half leading by 13 at the main break.
Logan would make a run in the third quarter to cut the margin to 7 at the final break, but a dominant 4th quarter from our team would see them chalk up a big win over the higher placed team.
Jeremy Kendle would produce a strong game with 37 points and 8 assists but had little support.
Jack McVeigh would lead the Seahawks with 23 points, 8 assists and 6 rebounds. Jordan Hunter also impressive with 21 points and 12 rebounds, also dishing out 5 assists.
Logan currently sits in 5th place and should be the more fancied team coming in. However, our team has proven that on their day they can take it to anyone in the league.
The women's game tips off at 1 p.m. followed by the men at 3 p.m. Our QSL1 teams will be playing in the lead up against the Sunshine Coast Rip; women at 9 a.m. and men at 11 a.m.
