The Blackwood Ravens will have the chance to win back-to-back premierships as they do battle with Bunbury in the 18 and under grand final this weekend as the 2021 South West Netball Football League season comes to an end.

Blackwood have had an incredible season in the 18 and under competition, with an almost completely perfect record of 17 wins and just one loss for the year which saw them finish on top of the league ladder.

Their opponents Bunbury finished the season in fourth with a record of 10 wins and seven losses but will be a tough match-up.

The Ravens secured their place in the grand final two weeks ago with a 68-51 victory over South Bunbury, who Bunbury also pipped by just a point in the preliminary final last week.

Match day action this Saturday will kick off at the Eaton Recreation Centre, with Bunbury also taking on Mercy, Leschenault, Collie in the 16 and under competition at 1.30pm, followed by the 18 and under game at 3pm. Bunbury with then face Carey Park in the Masters grade at 4.30pm, with Bunbury against Eaton Boomers in the reserves at 6pm and the Boomers facing the Busselton Magpies for the league game at 7.30pm.
