Courtney Continues Hot Form for the Fire

March 14, 2022 | Townsville Fire news

Courtney Woods has surged into contention to be named Townsville’s player of the year and she’ll look to poll more votes in the final round of the WNBL season. She was the Fire’s MVP for a third game running in Townsville’s loss to Southside.

The guard scored a game high 22 points, dished out four assists and pulled down eight rebounds. She’s struck a purple patch of form since becoming a starter, scoring 61 points in her last three appearances. The 24-year old has well and truly taken advantage of injuries opening the door for her to play big minutes.


Fire Point guard Steph Reid hasn’t been shocked by her teammate’s terrific displays.

“It’s been a really good opportunity for some players to step up and Courtney Woods certainly has. It’s not surprising, because of efforts in training, we all know how hard she works, the coaching staff know how hard she works but to be able to see her come out and produce these phenomenal performances, it’s extremely exciting as her teammate.”

Our women will finish their campaign with a home double header. They’ll play Perth on Friday night and again on Sunday. Townsville coach Shannon Seebohm will give development players Aliza Fabbro and Carla Drennan extra court time, against the ladder leaders.

“Yeah absolutely it will be good this weekend to get some more minutes out of the girls we haven’t seen much of this season.”

Tickets for both games are on sale now.
