Colac Kookas basketballers have ended their four-game losing streak in a major boost for the club’s title hopes this season.
The Kookas made the long trek across the South Australian border to take on Millicent in a must-win match for the club, which is in a battle with Portland to finish second in its conference and book a semi-final spot.
Colac won the clash, 75-61, to celebrate young gun Matthew Lloyd’s 50th club game in style.
Lloyd finished with 12 points and was among a host of contributors for the visiting Kookas, who made the trip interstate with just seven players.
Coach Nathan Lemke, who scored a team-high 20 points, said his players united to land the club its first Country Basketball League win since November 30.
