The summer season Finals were played last weekend in front of a good sized well behaved crowd.
No games were forced to overtime this year however their were some great Junior Finals on Friday night, some really close games keeping parents and friends on their toes. A good example was Wildcats Rohan Baker hitting a 3 pointer with 4 secs to go to win the U17 Boys final.
The headline games on Saturday were disappointing. Women's A grade Hot favourite Demons were unable to field a full team due to Injuries, holidays and players with other commitments. This meant that Titans went back to back with and easy 24 pt victory Demons, their biggest loss of the season.
The Men's A grade final was a similar tail of Woe for Demons who went straight in to the GF after upsetting perennial favourite Bevan. Wildcats eliminated Bevan in a further upset leaving betting on the GF wide open.
After a close 1st quarter Demons outside shooting went astray. And continued that way all night. They contained wildcats to a reasonable score but were unable to convert at their end. Michael Wallace a a stand out player for wildcats in an easy 19 pt win.
Team photo's and results are to published in the Whyalla news this week.
