Congratulations to Koonung Comets players 

"Congratulations to Koonung Comets players Matthew Rowell, Daniel Horvat and coach Chris Hastings on their efforts for their representative U12 Bulleen Boomers team.

They competed in the state grand final on Friday 21st September at the State Basketball Centre but unfortunately were unable to walk away with the gold medal. They were defeated by Hawthorn Magic 45-40, a team who remained undefeated the whole year.

The Bulleen team led for a lot of the match however were unable to hold on and get the win. Regardless of this their efforts were remarkable and it is great to see Koonung Comets players continue to play (and coach) at the highest junior level in the state. Well done!"

The Story behind the banner picture

Okay, so the picture on our banner has been there for a few years now.  But there is a great story behind it.  It was taken immediately after a Grand Final (in 2006) when coach Colin Cass (with his son Jordy in the team) lead his then Under 13 Boys into what turned out to be an amazing match against Eltham, played at Slater Reserve. Peter Sedy was on hand with Video Camera (his son Campbell is second from the left) - the game had everyting - there was a fantastic atmosphere, contoversy of course and plenty of skills on show.    Watch the video below
