Round 11 likely represents the last hurdle to a third straight unbeaten regular season in the Geraldton Netball Association for the Aztecs after they won again last week.

The Aztecs faced a Pumas side who have been the closest challenger to the top two sides in the past three years, but once again they came up short.

Aztecs came away with a 50-38 victory, which is the closest margin these sides have had since the Pumas won the 2020 grand final, such has been the dominance of the two-time reigning champions.

In the early game, Kazuals won a high-scoring encounter with the Falcons 77-55 as they continued their unbeaten run against teams not named Aztecs.

Kazuals will face Aztecs in a blockbuster clash tonight with this presenting the last realistic hurdle to another Aztec unbeaten season.
