Amy Lewis from Ipswich Force has been tearing up the court, backing up her double-double from Round 3 (22 pts and 12 reb) with another big game against Logan last weekend (16 pts).

Mountaineers are up for the challenge, ready to secure their first win with Tyla Stolberg on the front lines.

NORTHSIDE WIZARDS V SD SPARTANS
This Saturday the Northside Wizards are back in action with a taste for vengeance, after losing by a single point against the Brisbane Capitals last weekend. This frustrating loss propelled a lot of talent into the limelight, including Courtney Woods (18 pts, 8 reb, 4 ast) and Steph Reid (18 pts, 9 ast, 5 reb, 4 stl) who both played the full 40 minutes on court. It comes as no surprise that Reid was a fan favourite from Round 4, given her impressive scores all season, averaging at 31.7 points to date. Given their narrow loss last weekend, Northside Wizards are ready to make every single second count in their match-up against the Spartans this Saturday.

Following their strong performances in Round 4, the Lady Spartans are on the top of their game. Cementing in two consecutive wins, the Spartans dominated the courts last weekend, leading in the rebounds, assists, steals, and second chance points in both their matches against NGC Seahawks and RedCity Roar. Spartans dropped several big scores last weekend, including Rebecca Haynes who landed 21 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals against Seahawks. Another star player was none other than Madelyn Willey, showing RedCity who was boss with 29 points, 4 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals to her name.

LOGAN THUNDER V SC PHOENIX TEAL
Logan Thunder remain at the top of the ladder for the Women’s Div, sweeping the competition again last weekend with two more wins against Ipswich Force and the South West Metro Pirates. Ready to take on Sunshine Coast Phoenix Teal in another electrifying match-up, all eyes will be on Mikaela Ruef and Ashley Taia given their standout performances in Round 4. We’re also keeping tabs on Mikhaela Cann and Chevannah Paalvast, who sent shockwaves through Ipswich with 16 points from Cann and Paalvast following up with 14 points.

Despite coming off another loss in Round 4, Sunshine Coast Phoenix Teal are not backing down just yet. Hoping to get back on track and secure a win against the undefeated Logan Thunder, Phoenix Teal will be looking to Amy Browne who landed a double-double against the Gold Coast Rollers last weekend (21 pts, 11 reb, 3 ast, and 2 stl).

SWM PIRATES V GC ROLLERS
Sinking into 11th place on the ladder, South West Metro Pirates had a tough round last weekend with two consecutive losses against USC Rip City and Logan Thunder. Ready to flip the competition on its head, the Pirates will face off with Gold Coast Rollers this Sunday. Despite their rocky season so far, several players are stepping up. Amanda Beatson dropped a double-double (10 pts and 12 reb) last Saturday, followed by Bree Farley racking up 17 points and 10 rebounds against Logan Thunder on Sunday.

The Gold Coast Rollers, on the other hand, are stepping into Round 5 on a positive note after securing their win last weekend. Their 16-point victory against Sunshine Coast Phoenix Teal has filled the Rollers with confidence, especially after copping a few losses in the previous rounds. Phoenix Teal will be eyeing up Lilly Rotunno, who had a field day last round with 18 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals. Just shy of landing a double-double (17 pts and 9 reb), Carleigh Patrick will be another to watch out for.
