VENUE & DATE :: 19th Jan 4:30pm & 20th Jan 10:00am @ Ice ArenA, Adelaide

LAST TIME :: Adelaide took both wins :: 5-6 and 7-1.

WHAT’S WHAT :: Adelaide come into this round off the back of two wins against Brisbane back in December, and the ladies will be keen to maintain their winning form. The Sirens were defeated in Melbourne 13-0 and 6-2, but after their previous close games against Adelaide in November they will be determined to put on a strong showing.

WHO’S WHO :: Sharna Godfrey was the only scorer for the Sirens the last time they played, so she will be a player to keep an eye on. Amelia Matheson will undoubtedly be looking to impress this weekend as well. Captain Kaylee White will be keen for a win.

Leading Adelaide goal scorers Andrea Steranko and Beth Kavanagh will also be ones to watch, after their outstanding performance against Brisbane. They will be looking to lead the Adrenaline in a strong performance leading into their upcoming games against the Ice in Melbourne.

WE THINK :: The Sirens will be determined to put on a good performance, and they are quite capable of winning. Adelaide however, will be just as determined to maintain their winning streak into the final rounds. All the teams want to get maximum points on the board going into the last few rounds of the season. This should make for fast-paced, exciting hockey, and we expect close results.
