Wanneroo Weekender - - Sport -

FOR the Joon­dalup Wolves, there couldn’t be a big­ger con­trast be­tween the two Man­durah Magic sides they will face in the State Bas­ket­ball League on Satur­day.

Man­durah’s men’s team is last on the lad­der, hav­ing not won a game, while its women’s side has won its first five con­tests and leads the league.

The Lady Wolf­pack face their most im­por­tant clash of the sea­son against the Magic at Joon­dalup Bas­ket­ball Sta­dium, par­tic­u­larly af­ter los­ing their last two matches.

The Lake­side Light­ning de­feated the Wolves 8171 in Joon­dalup on Fri­day, send­ing the hosts down from fourth to fifth on the ta­ble.

The Wolves had no an­swer for Lake­side’s US im­port Ali Sch­wag­meyer, who hit 38 points.

Klara Wis­cher top scored for Joon­dalup with 19 points, while El­lyce Iron­mon­ger took a game-high 16 re­bounds.

In the men’s league, third-placed Joon­dalup will be ex­pected to take its third straight win when it faces the win­less Magic.

The Wolves eas­ily ac­counted for Lake­side 98-78, led by Trian Iliadis’s 19 points.

Rob Hunt­ing­ton took a team-high eight re­bounds.
