Rockingham Flames continued their winning ways in the women's SBL season, beating the defending champions on Sunday, but the Cockburn Cougars and Lakeside Lightning are also undefeated.

Week 3 of the women's season began on Friday night with the Lakeside Lightning beating the Collie Crane Hire South West Slammers 115-57 at Lakeside Recreation Centre, and the Kalamunda Eastern Suns downing the Schweigen East Perth Eagles 67-58 at Ray Owen Sports Centre.

And on Sunday afternoon, the Rockingham Flames beat the Wanneroo Wolves 68-60 at Joondalup Basketball Stadium, and with the very same scoreline the Cockburn Cougars defeated the Mandurah Magic 68-60 at Mandurah Aquatic and Recreation Centre.

Meanwhile, the fixtured women's and men's matches between the Willetton Tigers and Perry Lakes Hawks on Saturday were postponed due to a power outage around Willetton Basketball Stadium.
