62 Centralian Advocate, Friday, February 19, 2010 CLASSIFIEDS 1300 508 509 SPORT Season begins 2010 competition excites Godwin BASKETBALL Chris Ward So far it looks great (thecompetition). From just the couple of games on Monday it is evident it is going to be a top competition. There were no blow-outs with the scores which shows there is a more even mix of talent which makes for more exciting matches. ASBA PRESIDENT LANCE GODWIN ASBA president Lance Godwin. THE expanded 2010 ASBA League Mens competition needs more players to fill the growing number of teams. The competition has grown from six to eight teams for the new season, with a more even league expected to result from the changes. ASBA president Lance Godwin said it is important teams fill their player stocks to ensure the exciting season reaches its potential. He said: There are a couple of sides in the competition that failed to field enough players and so they had to forfeit their first match on Monday. Apart from that one hiccup the competition looks set to be a cracker. Hopefully in time these teams will find a full complement of players. Aside from the early-season player shortage the competition is looking as strong as ever, with Godwin expecting another stellar year for the sport. He said: So far it looks great (the competition). From just the couple of games on Monday it is evident it is going to be a top competition. There were no blow-outs with the scores which shows there is a more even mix of talent which makes for more exciting matches. Godwin believes the strength of player numbers has improved in recent years and expects the focus to shift to ensuring new and existing officials have access to training to help improve the standard of play. He said: As a whole the game is looking very healthy. Most clubs have good structure and good player bases. And there is a full complement of board members, something which hasnt been achieved for years. To take the game that bit further we want to focus on improving the standard of play and refereeing. To do this we are going to provide proper training for our officials. We want the game to go from strength-to-strength and thats not going to happen if we cant improve the standard of play. The opening round of the League Mens season was played on Monday night with reigning premier Rockets defeating Yirara, while Federal Wallabies Storm were too good for Rockets Razorbacks. Panthers out to win BASEBALL Chris Ward Panthers pitcher David Kerrin will be a key to his sides fortunes tonight. Picture: CHUCK CONRAD THE diamond of the Lyel Kempster Park will host a season defining match between Alice Springs Baseball Association competition front-runners the Demons and Panthers. Both teams currently share a spot at the top of the ladder until tonight, with the winner claiming outright first position and the coveted berth in the ASBA grand final. Previous encounters between the two teams have been decided by no more than four runs, but Demons coach Derek Williams expects another close result. He said: This is going to be a season-defining match. The winner of this game will be the team to go straight into the grand final. It will be another close match but I think our boys have what it takes. The other game on the night will be cellar-dwellers Redbacks up against third-place Tigers. It will be Redbacks last real chance to notch up a win before competitions end when they go up against the Tigers who have five wins to their name. Catch all the baseball action at Lyel Kempster Park from 7pm tonight. Rockets Blue A TEAM brimming with t a l e n t e d j u n i o r s , Rockets Blue forced their way in to the finals last year, but struggled against more physical and experienced opposition. Despite being such a young side team manager Lance Godwin belives the team copes well with the pressures of playing against men. He said: These kids are hard to intimidate. Rockets Silver NEW team in the competition Rockets Silver are aiming for a top four finish, which will see them squeeze into the finals. Rockets Silver player Ben Streeter is optimistic the players will pull it together to finish in the top four. He said: We are a relatively new bunch of players so it is going to take a few games to get into the groove of things. Memo Magic P R E L I M I N A R Y finalists last year Memo Magic have a few hurdles to overcome if they are to challenge for the major prize this year. Manager Sue Martin said the team is experiencing a transition phase, with only three of the 2009 squad remaining. She said: For the first time we have a full-on coach in Sam Osborne. Roaring Ramblers ROARING Ramblers are in desperate need of players if they are going to stay in the ASBA League Men competition for the new season.The Ramblers were forced to forfeit their opening match against the Rebels. Ramblers president Pat Dodds said she is optimistic about finding some players to fill empty spots in the side. Rockets THE imposing Rockets side will be looking to dominate the ASBA competition again in 2010. Hot favourites to retain their 2009 championship, Rockets have retained the core that has been so successful for them for many years. Tui Ford Snr said the team focuses on having fun. He said: We dont even train due to other sporting commitments. Wallabies Storm LAST years runnersup, Federal Wallabies Storm are determined to go that one step further this year. According to coach Phillip Budgie Preece he has been able to retain the majority of last years finals side. He said: We have a very good mixture of youth and older heads in the side. Yirara YIRARA are looking for an improvement on last years disappointing results and have organised regular training sessions with the aim of becoming more competitive. Player-coach Keith Durham has taken steps in the hope his side can show some improvement. He said: We didnt train at all last year, but this year we are looking at holding regular training sessions. Rebels AFTER a tough season in 2009, which saw the Rebels forfeit a number of times, things are looking like turning around. Rebels president Reggie Smith said the team will look stronger this year with time. He said: Weve lost a few players, but picked up some good ones. I think well be a lot better and more competitive this season than we were last year. THE Centralian Advocate takes a brief look at the season ahead in ASBA League Mens basketball.
