Wyndham looking to stay on top as season rolls on

THE Big V Women’s basketball competition will host another round, and the fixture will see Wyndham take on the Sunbury Jets at Boardman Stadium on Saturday night, in an important clash for both sides.

There will be a lot on the line for both teams in terms of the context of the season, despite the two clubs being in the midst of different campaigns. Wyndham are the current ladder-leaders with the best record in the competition, but have the Boomers hot on their tail. On the other hand, the Jets are sitting in fourth and will be looking to keep up with the top three’s pace.

It will be the most anticipated clash of the round, given it is between two of the top four sides so far this season. Expect both clubs to come out in search of a strong start to the game, in what should be an enthralling battle.

Sunbury Jets vs. Wyndham
Saturday, June 25 @ 8pm
Boardman Stadium

The Jets have been solid so far this season, winning more than half of their outings and holding a record of eight wins and six losses. That sees them sit in fourth spot heading into Round 13, trailing McKinnon by percentage. However, the latter have a nice run on the weekend with a couple of favourable matchups, so an upset would be huge for Sunbury here.

Last weekend, the Jets managed to sneak past Bulleen and claim a stunning victory, and they will be seeking another big scalp here. In that game, it was a final-quarter surge that got Sunbury over the line, and they demonstrated the ability to take down any side on any week.

The duo of Maria Steen Jespersen and Ida Andersson proved too damaging, with the pair combining for 58 points, and seriously hurting the opposition as they have done all year. If one or both can fire again on Saturday, it will be massive for their side’s chances.

Wyndham has been the strongest side all season, winning 12 of their first 14 games, which is the best of any side in the competition. The visitors have been quite dominant in a fair few of their wins, and will be looking to repeat that feat again on Saturday night.

Fresh off a 40-point triumph over Pakenham, Wyndham will not be short of momentum coming in. In that win, Lauren Jones was the star of the show with 27 points, but there were a number of contributors on the night, which will bolster their chances.
