Kalamunda Eastern Suns have secured their fourth consecutive win, beating the Perry Lakes Hawks 74-66, securing the Eastern Suns a spot in the top four after round 14 of women's State Basketball League.

A surge in the last quarter saw the Hawks double the Eastern Suns' score but it was too late to reverse the outcome.

Other teams fell just short after fourth-quarter comebacks, including the Cockburn Cougars who almost managed an upset, going down 75-67 to the Perth Redbacks.

An incredible game from Cougars forward Stephanie Jones, who finished with 33 points and nine rebounds, was not enough to get her side over the line.

The Cougars made a desperate attempt at a comeback with a solid 29-point last quarter but it was too late to close the deficit.

Willetton continue to struggle without captain Melissa Marsh and guard Courtney Hargreaves, going down to Stirling in a shock 66-50 result.

The Senators were led by Lauren Jeffers (16 points), Amanda Frontino (14 points) and Samantha Roscoe with 13 points and ten rebounds.

The East Perth Eagles started their weekend off in good form however, taking down the Wanneroo Wolves 61-58 on Friday night to continue the Wolves woes.

The Eagles split weekend was enough to see them move into a top eight position, the Wolves however continue their slide, now in fourth position.

Veteran Wolves guard Suzanne Williams (18 points) and young star Shani Amos (16 points) were standouts for Wanneroo.

The Eagles had a solid team effort with Kate Fielding (13 points), Kelsey Maffin (15 points), Bindi Foote (11 points, ten rebounds) and Samantha Norwood with 11 points and 11 rebounds all playing a part in the victory.
