THERE has been some talented junior teams on double-figure undefeated runs across the district in 2017.

At least three local sides had not lost a game as of last Friday, with the contests heating up at the business end of the season.

In the netball ranks, the Swan Valley Anglican Community School’s U15 Division 1 team was on a 10-0 run in the Swan Districts Netball Association competition.

They were two games clear of Illusions, who had an 8-3 record.

The season finishes at the end of August, with the final game this weekend.

On the soccer field, Perth Hills United and Kalamunda United were enjoying double-figure runs without having lost a game. Perth Hills had won 13-straight in Football West’s U12 South Division 4 league.

They led Canning City SC, who had a 10-4 record.

Kalamunda had also won 13 matches, but had drawn one to give them a 13-1-0 undefeated run in the U13 South Division 2 standings.

Behind them was Perth Hills holding an 11-1-2 record.

The soccer season also finishes at the end of August.
