BETTA Homeliving Hornets finally tasted the sweet nectar of victory in Basketball Kyabram’s Years 7-9 division on Monday evening.

They overcame the gallant Kyabram Bakery Gators (44-35), who were without several key players.

The Hornets flew out to a 30-13 half-time lead, however, after taking in the suggestions of their on-court coach, the Gators outscored the Hornets 22-14 in the final 20 minutes.

The Watt brothers — Oliver and Archie — were up to the challenge and scored 33 points between them. Ollie had 24 points and Archie, who has stepped up from Grade 5-6 division, had nine points.

Of the Gators’ new players, Brodie Luckman found every square inch of the court in a dynamic defending effort; Levi Gordon chipped in with a vital early bucket and Charlees Sudholtz played above her size to take a handful of rebounds.

For the victors, James Myers (10) and Ivan de Leon (8) had their best scoring and rebounding games. Joseph Owen-Horn scored four close-to-the-ring points; Chelsea West swept in a sweet jumper and Charlotte Freemantle showed poise with the ball. But again the star was leaping Jarom Owen-Horn who collected 20 points and a score of assists.
