CABL Women:

Woodville Warriors (3-8, 7th) v Norwood Flames (11-0, 1st) Saturday June 29, 6.30pm at St Clair

Officials: A Just & I Domeika

After a couple of near-misses, the Woodville Warriors have a daunting task ahead of them as they face the might of Norwood.

The Warriors have won just three of their 11 games, but their performances the last two weeks have suggested they are on the rise. They fell just four points short of a Jemma Thacker-inspired Eastern, before leading North inside the final three minutes, only to lose by nine.

However, as good as Eastern and North are, the Flames have proven to be miles ahead of everyone thus far. They beat the Mavericks, minus superstar Tess Madgen, by 54 last week. No one, including Sturt and Forestville, has come within 30 of them since West lost by nine in Round 5.

Back in Round 4, the Flames cruised to an 87-52 win. Jordan Walker-Roberts and Jessica Good each scored 14 for the Flames, who had five double figure scorers. Tess Keenan likewise had 14 for the Warriors, while Jessica Koch scored 10.


Woodville Warriors (9-2, 2nd) v Norwood Flames (5-6, 8th), Saturday June 29, 8.15pm at St Clair

Officials: J Clover & M Harris

There is a sense of irony ahead of Woodville’s Round 13 home clash with Norwood. The Warriors are sitting pretty with a 9-2 record, and are near certainties to play in their first finals series since 2005. The Flames are struggling in eighth at 5-6, and unless they start reversing their results, will be out of the finals picture for the first time since 2005.

However, the Flames should remain upbeat as they have not lost on a trip to Woodville since… 2005!

Will each club continue on their new paths or revert back to their old ones? This match could tell the tale.

In Round 4, the Warriors ended a 12 game total losing streak to the Flames by winning 90-74. Edward Millard (16 points) and Andrew Webber (15 points) were Norwood’s top scorers.

Aaron Wyatt scored 33 for the Warriors and Cameron Wilson had 19, although Darren Ng was held to 15. After a slow start to the year, Ng has erupted for 111 points (including 21 treys) over the last four weeks.
