ROBIN Hood appears certain to claim this year’s Orange Netball Association division one minor premiership following a 58-40 penultimate round win over Royal Hawks.
With just one round of the 2013 regular season remaining before the most intriguing finals series the ONA has seen in the last five years commences, Robin Hood leads Life Studios by one point on the competition ladder.
However, with their final game of the season against the sixth-placed Hawks John Davis Motors, Robin Hood is all but assured of the number one billing heading into the post season.
Life Studio locked up second place on the ladder with a 54-21 win over Little Johns Bottle Shop on Saturday, while High A also secured a place in this year’s finals with a comprehensive 55-28 victory over Hawks JDM.
Despite Saturday’s loss to Robin Hood, Royal Hawks (third) will also feature prominently in this year’s finals and face an ideal tune-up when they face KWS 1sts next weekend at Anzac Park.
In other round 13 division one matches, CYMS Gladiators recorded an impressive 52-32 win over KWS 1sts.
