R13 ABA Action
Another close season of ABA. In the women's draw, nine teams are still in it with 5 teams fighting for 5th spot. In the men’s draw, the field has narrowed to 7 teams and top spot is wide open.
Panthers-Bearcats @ Tin Shed
M: Westies are on top of the table and will be looking to stay there. Panthers just looking to be a pest for the rest of the season. Davo with an easy 42 last week should expect to be tagged this week. You need to be pretty fit to keep up with the old fella and I reckon he’ll be starring as the big bad wolf. Bearcats should stroll in and out.
W: Another easy game for the Westies girls this week. Panthers need to win to keep the finals chances alive, but might find it hard after this round. Westies in straight sets.
Flames-Warriors @ Mars
M: Warriors have been a surprise package this season and are up against a very formidable opponent. Flames burnt the Sabres last week and although Warriors will be looking to keep their finals hopes alive, will fall victim to a superior outfit.
W: Warriors part of that logjam for 5th spot. Flames have more ins and outs than a bookie. A full strength Flames should roast the Warriors, but without a few key players might offer a glimmer of hope for the Warriors to slip into the 5 if results go their way. Who’s playing this week for the Flames?
Sabres-Mavs @ "Summer Hgts High"
M: Lots of talent running around court in this game. Sturt don’t like losing two in a row and while Flames stitched up Sabres last week, this week Mavs should be stiched up.
W: The Sabres are likely to put the Mavs to the blade this round. Big numbers will be bagged by Tess, but the end result may be four losses in a row after Sat. night. Probably MOTR in the women's draw with the Mavs not going down without a fight.
Lions-Rockets @ Siberia North
M: Everyone is expecting a Rockets win, but they have been inconsistent all year by losing games they should have won, then beating top teams. Lions have offerred promise at the start of the season, but have been left in the blocks. Could be an interesting game.
W: Rockettes out of 5 and would been keen to get back in. They will hit the Lionesses hard this round and looking to seal the W early.
Eagles-Tigers @ Wayville Waterworld
Hopefully no rain on Sat night, it would be embarrasing having all those mops on court and refs with snorkels and flippers.
M: Tigers men are woeful at the moment, Eagleboys are out of their mid season slump and should be serving up a Tiger pizza on Sat night. It’s a long drive home after a loss.
W: Eaglettes setting the pace in the women's side and with the Tigeresses in the 5 and needing a win to stay there, will need to show why they deserve to be there. A suprise Tigers win will make things interesting.
