Hurricanes close in on silverware

NETBALL: Brothers Hurricanes are in a prime position to win this year's division 1 Bundaberg Netball minor premiership in the final round this Wednesday.

The side stayed on top of the ladder over Alloway Blue after a 47-24 win over The Waves Silver.

The win, which was its 14th of the season, kept them on top by percentage after Alloway Blue defeated The Waves Gold 51-42.

The title will now go down to the final round with Alloway Blue facing the Fusion Location and Brothers facing The Waves Gold.

Brothers will secure the minor premiership if they can win against The Waves Gold and the side scores enough goals to keep its percentage higher than Alloway Blue if they win.

In other results last Wednesday, Natives defeated The Waves Blue 40-34 with Blazers beating Alloway Purple 53-35.

The win wasn't enough for Blazers to qualify for the finals with The Waves Gold and The Waves Silver taking the final two spots.

The Waves Silver will take on The Waves Blue this week with Alloway Purple to face the Natives in their final match of the season.

RESULTS

Alloway Blue def The Waves Gold 51-42

Blazers Metro def Alloway Purple 53-35

Natives Magpies def The Waves Blue 40-34
