Werribee Devils on fire

The surging form of the Werribee Devils shows no signs of abating in the Big V basketball women’s division 1.

The Devils have made it five wins out of the past six games with a commanding 71-56 victory over Latrobe City Energy at Eagle Stadium on Saturday night.

A monster third quarter was the catalyst to another Devils triumph.

After trailing by four at half-time, the Devils ran rampant in the third with a 30-9 quarter and were out of sight by the start of the fourth.

Another huge outing from import Alyssa Bennett inspired Werribee.

Bennett produced 27 points, including three threes, 13 rebounds, four assists and three steals to lead the way for the Devils. Jessica Slade and Georgia Tauschke were the other Devils starters to have a say.

Slade finished with 12 points and five rebounds, while Tauschke had 10 points and six boards.

Jessy Price was strong off the bench with 14 points, six rebounds and three steals, but went just one-from-nine from three-point land.

Werribee has squared the season ledger at 6-6.

The Devils will hit the road to face Warrnambool Mermaids in a finals-like game at The Arc Sports Stadium on Saturday night.

It’s panic time for the Werribee Devils in the men’s state championship after slumping to a third straight loss.

The Devils went down 92-83 to Casey Cavaliers at Casey Stadium on Sunday.

Paul Elderkin lit it up for the Devils with 21 points and seven rebounds.

The Devils (4-9) will be playing to keep their finals hopes alive when they visit Blackburn Vikings (2-10) on Saturday night and then host Ringwood Hawks (10-2) on Sunday.
