In the first home game of the QSL 2021 season, the SmartSkill Seahawks Women and Seahawks Men, face off against neighbours Logan this Saturday night at the Nest.
The SmartSkill Seahawks Women’s team will be looking to keep their 3-0 record intact against a Logan team they convincingly defeated in week 1 of the QSL competition 70 - 50.
Head Coach for the SmartSkill Seahawks Women, Bradley Kann, is excited to tip off the home campaign this Saturday night.
“To start the season 3-0, and to get to come home with some wind in our sail, is really positive” said Kann.
“I feel as though we have taken some really positive steps in the first 2 weeks of the season, with our team defence starting to really click and individuals, like Krystle (McKenzie), starting to hit her straps after some time off”
“We are starting to get full contributions from the entire group, which is important for this stretch of the season”
Kann is not letting his group get ahead of themselves against a team they have already beaten.
“We are expecting a tough and physical game once again, following our initial match up with Logan in round 1”
“We are hoping to rectify some of the errors we made in the first round of the season and put in another improved performance this weekend”
The Seahawks Men will be looking to get back in the winner’s circle after taking their first defeat last weekend at the hands of crosstown rivals Gold Coast.
In week 1 of the competition, the Seahawks Men came out on the end of their back-to-back weekend and convincingly beat Logan 92 – 60.
Head Coach for the North Gold Coast Seahawks, Jordan Mullan, has ramped his team’s preparation up for their home opener this Saturday night.
“We have reviewed our game against Gold Coast and found some of the gaps we need to improve as individuals and as a team” said Mullan
“The entire squad needs to step up in all assets of our game, from rebounding to just taking care of the ball”
Mullan did take some positives out of last weekend’s clash.
“We actually shot the ball well from the field and the 3-point line last Saturday night”
“I thought our shot selection was solid, which means we got decent looks but for the tempo we want to play at, we need to get more attempts up”
The QSL2 Men’s team take on Ipswich in the first of 3 games this Saturday night.
