2009 NWBL CHAMPIONS...
Congratulations to the 2009 NWBL Champions the Perth WheelCats who today took their 5th National Title - their fourth in a row!
Perth came in to the weekend clearly as the team to beat having been dominant in the league for the past four years. However, today there was certainly a huge expectation that this run could be broken by a very talented and quietly confident Wheelkings lineup.
Perth asserted their dominance early and were never headed during a clinical display.
Final score saw the Perth WheelCats 106 def the Wenty Leagues WheelKings 73. Full match stats can be found here.
