WATCH LIVE: Phoenix in mix for U14 honours

Sunshine Coast Phoenix are gearing up to cap their state championship campaign in style, with their U14 girls poised for a strong charge in Mackay.

REPLAY: Phoenix U14 boys v Burdekin Wildcats

REPLAY: Phoenix girls crowned state champions

The Maroochydore club will tackle the U14 girls Division 1 championships from Friday.

USC Rip City are also in action up north, entering a side in Division 2.

Phoenix coaching director Warwick Wilson had particularly high hopes for his club's squad.

The event is being livestreamed by News Corp, with the Phoenix girls to have their battle against Southern District Spartans on Friday at 9.30am broadcast for all to enjoy.

"I can tell you now that I expect them to probably finish top three in premier league," Wilson said.

"They've probably got four bottom age players which are going to be players to watch and that girls team is really good."

He listed Bonni Buttsworth and Claudia Barry as two stars set to shine in Mackay.

Over the past two weeks, Phoenix and USC Rip City have had boys and girls teams from U12 to U16 in action in state championships.
