Head Coach Ally Hope said "I was a apprehensive going in to the first weekend as we had a few changes to the roster from last year, plus trying to assess where the other teams were was difficult.... however, the ladies were awesome, played sublime basketball, and built a solid foundation with solid and dynamic defence. I'm really proud of the team and I'm looking forward to the next weekend"

The games  also featured Division 1 Women's League debuts for 4 young and talented players,  Adele Atkin, Jade Atkin and Emma Walton from Blackhawks and CWBA's own 13 year old Jess Dowdeswell.
