Sharks ready to at­tack fi­nals

Fremantle Gazette - - SPORT - Mitchell Wood­cock

A TENTH win this sea­son has se­cured East Freo a dou­ble chance and a crack at the top-ranked West Coast War­riors in the first week of the WA Net­ball League fi­nals.

The Sharks se­cured a top-two fin­ish with a round to spare when they de­feated Western Roar 6252 on the back of a 40-goal game from shooter Larissa Har­ri­son.

East Freo led by just two goals at quar­ter-time but a 16-10 third term saw them break away from last year’s grand fi­nal­ists.

They will tune up for fi­nals to­mor­row night with a fi­nal-round fix­ture against an­other fi­nals­bound team, Curtin Hamer­s­ley Comets, at Gold Net­ball Cen­tre.

West Coast War­riors wrapped up the mi­nor premier­ship when they eas­ily ac­counted for Peel Light­ning on Sun­day 93-35 at Gold Net­ball Cen­tre, their 12th vic­tory from 13 games.

Comets also se­cured their fi­nals berth, just 12 months after a win­less sea­son, when they de­feated Rangers 61-48 on Fri­day night.

The vic­tory put the Comets four points ahead of last year’s pre­lim­i­nary fi­nal­ists to earn a spot in the elim­i­na­tion fi­nal against Western Roar next month. Rangers miss the fi­nals.

South­side Demons were one of the stories of the week­end, claim­ing their first win of 2020 when they de­feated Souwest Jets 5752.

Jets looked as if they were go­ing to get their sec­ond win of the year when they led 15-11 at quar­ter­time, but the Demons chipped away and took over for good in the third quar­ter.
