The Southern Design Sydney Uni Flames will be looking to finish their season on a high when they take on the West Coast Waves at the Sydney Uni Sports & Aquatic Centre this Saturday night, as part of the Flames ‘Stand Tall, Stand Proud’ Indigeneous Excellence Round.
The Flames will head into their final game of the season full of confidence following a resounding 14 point victory against the Waves last Saturday night in Alice Springs.
April Sykes, Rohanee Cox and Katie Rae Ebzery all had great offensive games against the Waves last weekend, and the girls will be looking to offer a similar threat to the Waves on Saturday night.
Flames captain Alicia Poto is also in some red hot form following her outstanding performance last weekend, leading the team from the front in both scoring and rebounding.
The Flames will need to be aware of the Waves bigs who provided some defensive headaches for the Flames last weekend with their ability to operate close to the basket, as well as being able to shoot from the perimeter. Antonia Edmondson also posed some problems for the Flames defence with her hard cuts and drives.
The Flames will once again need to focus on rebounding and defence which has been inconsistent this season, but another solid display will allow the girls to finish the season on a positive note in front of a packed Flames home court.
Tip-off against the Waves is at 7pm this Saturday February 16 at the Sydney Uni Sports & Aquatic Centre (SUSAC) and tickets are on sale from 6pm.
Join the Flames ‘Stand Tall, Stand Proud’ Indigeneous Excellence Round game against the Waves, as they acknowledge the traditional owners of the land and raise awareness of the local ATSI community by building partnerships with local elders and community organisations.
This is a great initiative is supported by the Flames, but in particular Alicia Poto and Rohanee Cox who have been instrumental in the organisation of this event.
