Sue Williams Cup

Tigers Retain Trophy

Nineteen (19) Willetton Tigers WABL teams competed against teams from Joondalup Wolves in their annual pre-WABL Season clash, vying for the Sue Williams Cup, on Sunday 7 April 2019.

Joondalup Wolves kindly hosted the Tournament this year due to our Stadium expansion for which we are truly grateful.

In a closely fought contest, both Associations were neck and neck (8 wins each) before the final fixtured games commenced at 12 noon.

However by the end of those last 3 games, Tigers teams won 2 of them, resulting in a 10 games to 9 games result - the Trophy will return to our Stadium for another year YAY!!!

Well done to those players and their families who travelled to HBF Arena in Joondalup for this Event, your support is much appreciated.

A huge thanks also to Peta Small, our Shot Clock Operator and to Neville Rutter and his team of Referees for taking the time to officiate our games.
