While the Red­backs put up a good fight, the game ended 76-68 in favour of Stir­ling.

Red­backs’ Jes­sica Jak­ens scored the most points in the game with 18 and Se­na­tors’ Tay­lor Be­stry was close be­hind with 17.

This year the Red­backs added two mar­quee play­ers to the squad for the 2016 sea­son, Adri­enne ‘Ajay’ Jones and Bianca Dono­van.

Jones re­turned to the WSBL af­ter tak­ing time away from the courts in 2015, but is a high-cal­i­bre player and hopes to bring a high level of play to the women’s side.

For­merly a Kala­munda Suns player, Jones has a num­ber of awards and cre­den­tials un­der her belt in WA bas­ket­ball.
