From the coaches

Jill Appleton (Pakenham)

To put it simply – (we’re most looking forward to) our first final! We’re excited to be on our home court this weekend to share this moment with the rest of the Warriors family. We’ve had two close, intense match ups with Frankston this season and they’ve had a huge run into finals, so this weekend is sure to be another. We can’t wait to see the stand full of blue and gold!”

Byron Carpenter (Frankston)

Here at Frankston we are looking forward to testing ourselves against the best team in our competition. Finals always bring an increase in the intensity of the games and we are keen to rise to embrace that challenge.”

Overview

In what has the potential to be the game of the finals the Warriors will host the Blues. Both teams split the regular season match-ups by a total of three points. Frankston stumbled in round 18 but defeated this Warriors team in round 16. This one should be a cracking contest.
