Reeves helps make it four straight

A SCINTILLATING performance from Coffs Harbour young gun Jessi Reeves has helped the Suns to a fourth consecutive Waratah State League win on Saturday.

Tamworth had no answers for the talented Reeves as she scored 25 points in her side's comprehensive 83-43 win at Sportz Central.

Coffs Harbour continues to display their championship credentials and are using the disappointment of last season's semi-final exit to inspire them to go one further in 2013.

"We are working very hard after our semi-final defeat last year and are very determined to improve on that this year," coach Connie Woods said.

"There are a number of new faces in the team this year and I am really impressed with how it is all coming together.

"Tonight we probably didn't play our best game defensively, however the girls are still a bit sore from last weekend's triple- header in Newcastle."

This season the Suns look to have one of their strongest teams with Woods having the enviable problem of finding court time for all her top players.

"As a coach I have found it really hard to look at the talent I have sitting on the bench and getting everyone into the game at the right time," she said.

"We have so much depth and I am hoping that will push us through this season to get the flag this year. The mix of youth and experience is another real strength this season and it was definitely on show tonight."
