Power-cut matches rescheduled

Cameron NewboldAlbany Advertiser

Albany Basketball Association has decided to reschedule the entire set of A-grade men’s and women’s fixtures for round 3 after a power blackout last month.

On October 24, a power cut forced the cancellation of all women’s and men’s A-grade fixtures, but after making a decision last week, the ABA has ruled they will all be played on Tuesday, December 19, which will be the final game before the Christmas and New Year break.

Tonight in round 7 of the men’s A-grade competition, the unbeaten Knights will take on Crabs at 7pm, while an enticing encounter between Kinjarling Thunder and Den/Albany Spartans will also start at 7pm.

The Raiders under-18 development squad will face Ambassadors at 8pm and at the same time, the fourth-placed Barking Owls meet Pelicans, while defending premiers Tigers have the bye.

In the women’s A-grade competition, top two sides Magpies and Panthers clash at 6pm and Flames will look to register their first win against Raiders in the other match at 7pm.
