BASKETBALL

Lakeside Lightning’s men and women are yet to drop a game in SBL 2019 after both teams accounted for the Perth Redbacks on the weekend.

The Lightning women started the home-court double header with a convincing 85-62 win led by a huge 24-point effort from Alison Schwagmeyer.

Geanna Luaulu-Summers (14 points), Ellyce Ironmonger (12) and Courtney Green (10) also contributed strongly in the paint.

The men also finished with a 96-67 win thanks to a team effort in the scoring.

Jarrad Prue finished with a double-double after bringing down 14 rebounds to go with his 11 points, while Kyle Armour top scored with 17 points.

The Cockburn Cougars weren’t as successful in their home games against Rockingham, dropping both.

The Cougar women struggled to get going against the Flames and, despite a valiant 15-point effort from import Kisha Lee, were crushed by their opponents who recorded a 105-62 victory.

Cockburn’s men didn’t fair much better, going down 120-90.

Captain Gavin Field top scored with 27 points.

After three rounds, the women’s ladder has Lakeside in 3rd and Cockburn in 5th, while the men’s sees Lakeside in 2nd and Cockburn in 12th.

In round 4 action, Lakeside will host Joondalup on April 5, with the women tipping off at 6.30pm and the men at 8.30pm.

The Cockburn men will travel north to take on Geraldton on April 6 while the women have a bye.

SOCCER

Cockburn City has recorded a second draw in as many weeks after a 1-1 result against ECU Joondalup on Saturday.

After a 4-4 draw against Inglewood United last week, Cockburn went into their round 3 NPLWA match against ECU Joondalup eager to bag all three points.

The game was an arm wrestle for the first half with neither team scoring, but it was ECU who drew blood first in the second half after Tom Hough found the back of the net.

With the game into injury time Cockburn looked like suffering their first loss of the season until Daniel Robinson fired a header passed the ECU keeper five minutes into injury time to ensure the home team salvaged a point.

Armadale had less luck in their match against Perth Glory, going down 5-0 at home.

After three rounds, Armadale and Cockburn sit fourth and fifth on the NPLWA ladder respectively.

In round 4 Cockburn will take on Balcatta FC at Grindleford Reserve, Balcatta while Armadale will play Floreat Athena at E&D Litus Stadium, Mt Hawthorn.

Both games will start at 3pm, April 6.
