Suns on the rise

A SIXTH straight Waratah State League Victory is on the line this weekend as Coffs Harbour travel to Port Macquarie to take on the Dolphins.

Connie Woods' side has been in incredible form this season easily accounting for anyone who has challenged them.

Despite the fast start the Suns' coach is stressing to her players to maintain the intensity.

"It has been a great start to the season from the girls however we need to keep the momentum going," Woods said.

"It is important we finish on top to guarantee our place in the finals.

"The pressure will be on us to keep working hard and playing hard as the season progresses."

The rise of Jessi Reeves has been one of many bright spots for the side.

"Jessi has brought so much to her game," Woods said.

"She has always been a good player but this season she has worked on other areas of her game and her performances have reflected that.

"The team is full of talented players this year and the fact we have had a different top scorer in every game is testament to that."

Tonight will also see the Bellinger Valley Braves take on Central Coast at Sportz Central.

Despite a mixed first few rounds the Jay Jones coached side will be out to return to the winners circle.

The game tips off at 6pm.
