Freefall ends

MOE Meteors men halted their Gippsland Country Basketball League freefall with a win over Korumburra at home on Sunday, after the side plummeted back to Earth in the wake of an early season fast break.

Since winning three straight to kick off their campaign, the Meteors have now won just two of their last five fixtures but found form in their 11 point victory over Korumburra.

Moe captain Nick Sedley said the side had room for improvement but was starting to click in the post with their big men.

“We’ve still got a little work to do,” he said.

“We’re missing Steve Bonnack; we’ve got a few too many coming in and out all the time so it’s hard to get consistency with three or four missing.”

Calvin Rees, Brendan Dawson and Ben Morrow stood tall against the Wildcats as the Meteors continue to build momentum at the midpoint of the regular season.

“It was probably the biggest influence (Morrow) has had since the first three or four games we had… it’s good to have him back,” Sedley said.

Moe will have a week off before an all important double header against Bairnsdale and Sale.

“If we can win all the ones we should win it’s only Churchill, Warragul and Western Port to really fight it out with,” Sedley said.

The Meteors women suffered a heart breaking one point loss to Maffra on Saturday, but bounced back to beat Korumburra 48-39 on Sunday.

Carly Mullen-Bianconi and Danielle Davies did the damage against the Wildcats with 15 and 13 points respectively.
