Ladies claim triumphant Tamworth win
ONE up - one down.
That's the record from Sportz Central after Coffs Harbour Suns womens team triumphed over Tamworth in State League on Saturday night, with the mens team being beaten.
Coffs Harbour Basketball's Judy Smith said after losing by three points on the trip across the range, the 73-45 homecoming win for the women all came down to a more settled line-up.
“The team was undersized when they lost away from home but this time the mix of players is good and I think they'll go forward from here,” she said.
Top scorer was Brooke Seccombe with 15 points while Bonnie Kuchel was prominent with a 13-point contribution.
Meanwhile, the mens team went down 73-51 after former State representative Chris Skilton registered 20 points for the visitors.
“It wasn't a bad result when remembering we lost by 70 points over there,” Smith said.
“Tamworth is a much older side with smarter heads than us.”
Robbie Linton top-scored for the Suns with 14 points.
