STAWELL’s final match of the regular season will be a tough match-up against the third-placed Portland Tigers.

The Tigers are behind the top-two by percentage and are a good chance to play off for the title if they can manage a big win.

A team of Warriors full of confidence after two straight wins will look to challenge the side.

Warriors coach Andrew Bach said it was great for the team to have built its confidence and start to be rewarded.

“We know Portland is one of the better teams in the league and the game will show just how much we’ve improved during the season,” he said.

“It will give us a good indication of how far we have come.”

The side’s players have shown improvement each week.

Amy Hodgetts has started to have a big impact on games and Kayla Prydderch is getting more and more of the ball.

Bach said he was also impressed by Kayla-Mae Hyslop.

“Much of the improvement has come from our second and third tier players, which is great,” he said. 

“Coaching the girls has been an enjoyable challenge.

“It has been really good to see them rewarded the past couple of weeks with some wins.”

Bach said the group would continue training hard after Sunday ahead of the final day of games on July 2.

“We might as well keep up the routine,” he said.

“Then we look to have them all come back next season and maybe we can get a few more girls as well.”
