The Bendigo Braves women made it six on the trot in the NBL1 after a 105-83 win against the Launceston Tornadoes in round four action last Friday night.

The Braves’ 48-31 second half set up the 22-point win, with five players in double figures.

Launceston captain Stephanie Gardener had a game-high 29 points on 12/20 shooting for the Tornadoes.

The Braves men’s team has squared the ledger at 3-3 on the season with a 93-76 win against the North West Tasmania Thunder.

The visitors got out of the blocks with a 29-21 first quarter to lead at the opening break, before a 30-13 second stanza from the Braves swung momentum in their favour.

A 24-12 final quarter punctuated the Braves big win, with Ray Turner proving hard to handle, scoring 32 points on 15/21 shooting.
