Basketball cancelled due to bushfire relief

THE use of the Gippsland Regional Sports Complex as a bushfire relief centre meant the Sale Sonics’ final two matches of the Country Basketball League season were abandoned.

The Sonics were due to play Traralgon on Saturday night and Churchill on Sunday afternoon.

The Sonics missed out on the men’s finals, winning three matches.

MAFFRA’S chances of making the women’s finals hinge on Korumburra’s performances in its two matches this weekend.

The Eagles regular season came to an end with a 56-48 win at Korumburra. The win was set-up by a 15-5 first quarter before leading 32-20 at half-time.

Maffra’s Jaz Allman led all scorers with 17 points, while Kate Bond scored nine.

Korumburra will host third-placed Moe then travel to six-placed Churchill, needing to win at least one of those matches to play the finals.
