The final make-up of the Narrogin and Districts Netball Association A1 ladder will come down to the last round of the regular season.

Heading into their round 14 clash, Pingelly and Wagin had won a game apiece against each other.

Pingelly needed a win to keep their top-two hopes alive but Wagin ended that with a comfortable 58-30 win to seal their place in the top two.

Shooter Sheree Blechynden was a big omission for Pingelly due to an injury and the first quarter was fast-paced and evenly matched as both sides displayed great skills.

Wagin had the upper hand at quarter-time 14-10 and from there Wagin went to another level.

Shooter Courtney Webb played a tremendous game for Wagin, firing on all cylinders and hitting goals from anywhere.

Her outstanding shooting percentage helped Wagin skip well clear.

Faith McNab also played a solid game for Wagin in defence as her agility and ability to read the play made it difficult for Pingelly shooters to maintain possession of the ball.

Pingelly played a solid game but were just outplayed in the 28-goal defeat.

Both teams are guaranteed a spot in the finals with Wagin second on the ladder and Pingelly remaining in third.

On Friday night it was a do-or-die clash between Wickepin and Cuballing.

Wickepin needed this win to secure their place in finals and Cuballing could replace Wickepin in fourth spot with victory.

Cuballing played a wonderful game, quickly gaining a significant lead against Wickepin.

They attacked the ball well down the court easily getting the ball to shooter Regina Kickett who barely missed a goal and was well assisted by Latoya Bolton.

Taya Olman played a tough defensive game and made it difficult for Wickepin shooter Deb Patmore, a key part of the result.

Cuballing secured a 60-39 triumph but will need to win against Pingelly this weekend to finish the season in the top four.

In the third A1 game of the round ladder leaders Flames went up against the bottom team Williams.

Williams also had three fill-ins in their very young side and they did not look too intimidated.

The game was hotly contested with Megan Hardie dominating the court in goal attack, creating space and moving the ball fluently to goal shooter Mackenzie Williams.

However Flames stepped up late in the game with Chelsea Mulcahy barely missing a shot as her team won narrowly, 49-48.
