On a cold & windy day there were some exciting results in the latest round of Pennants matches.
The 4s had a very strong win at home against Harbord (1) winning 77-45 (9 pts to 1). That leaves St Ives 5 points behind the section leader Willoughby Park with one round to go. The drama is all set as that Round 10 fixture sees St Ives travel to Willoughby Park for a winner-takes-all finale. St Ives will be looking to overturn a Round 5 loss at home to the same opponent. Good luck!
The 6s had an excellent win away at Mosman 64-59 (9 pts to 1). That result keep St Ives in contention on the ladder- 1/2 point behind Chatswood and 7 1/2 behind Mosman. In Round 10 St Ives are away to North Manly whilst the top two meet at Chatswood. St Ives has to win and hope that Chatswood can topple Mosman.
In their final game of the season the 2s finished on a high, winning away to Dee Why 59-54 (8 pts to 2).
Sad to report the 7s came back down to earth with a bump losing away to Mona Vale 46-75 (0 pts to 10). However the 7s still have destiny in their own hands- a win next week away to Seaforth will see them top the section. Mona Vale will need to sweep the board at Killara if they are to have any hope. In Round 5 St Ives had a strong 69-60 win against Seaforth so a final round win is very much a possibility.
Let's keep our fingers crossed for our teams next weekend.
