Wallace, Walshe drive Dragons past Warriors

Kaitlyn Wallace (below) had a 10-point, 11-rebound, 11-assist triple-double, Megan Walshe (above) led all scorers with 20 points and Rachael Smith registered a 13-point, 19-rebound, six-steal double-double as our Youth League Women pulled away for a 72-63 Big V win against Pakenham at Balwyn High School today.

The Warriors held the Dragons to just five points in the third quarter on their way to slicing a seven-point deficit at the half to just three with a quarter to play, but Camberwell had all the answers down the stretch.

With Walshe on target from the three-point line (4-of-9 from the arc) and Jacinta Li adding 17 points, six rebounds and three assists, the Dragons outscored their guest 26-20 over the last 10 minutes to secure their third straight win, and 14th of the season.

They’re third in the Big V Youth League One competition with a 14-5 record, behind unbeaten Eltham (19-0) and Bulleen (15-3).

In Saturday night Dragons Big V action:

• Eleni Valos led our Championship Women with an 18-point, 12-rebound double-double in an 81-61 road loss at Sunbury.

• Anthony Kimble led all scorers with 20 points and Jay Mackenzie registered a 13-point, 14-board double-double for our Championship Men, who went the distance with highly rated Keysborough on the road. The Cougars holding on for a 72-69 win.
