PENINSULA Waves will be sweating on Sunday's Victorian Netball League results.
The Waves are in second position but will fall to third if Monash University Central defeats Geelong Cougars in Geelong on Sunday.
The double chance looks to have been squandered by the Waves courtesy of their 60-37 loss to ladder leader City West Falcons at Altona last Sunday.
"Our goal was fifth this year," Waves coach Robynn Pym said. "It wasn't the type of game that we wanted to finish the season on but having said that we've beaten Ariels last week and we'd never beaten them in the club's history. We also beat Hume this year for the first time in the club's history."
It was a rare downer for the Waves this year. Even star goal shooter Mwai Kumwenda was below her best, benched in the third term.
Pym said it was an important lesson for her team on the eve of their first finals campaign. "The other girls have just got to keep it together. If MJ has a bad game everyone has a bad day," Pym said. "In all honesty people are just excited that we're up there."
The Waves have an extended break before their first final, with both the major and minor semi-finals to be played on July 18.
