Preliminary Final

League Women - Ansett v Eagles

Ieasha Friel hit 11 of her game high 19 in the third quarter to help the Eagles overcome Ansett in an upset 68-52 win that sends them into a Grand Final match-up with the Tracy Village Jets. The Birds wasted no time setting the tempo in this game as they shot out to a 17-10 first quarter lead and were still on top at half time 27-22. The third quarter proved to be critical for the Birds as they flew past the grounded Blues with a 28-14 run led by Friel to take their lead out to 19 points at 55-36 with just the fourth quarter to play. The Blues tried to get back into contention, but the Birds held on for the victory and now face a big task in trying to unseat the defending champs Jets. Friel (20.6ppg) was backed up by a solid team effort from Jaylene Boundry (14 @ 10.9ppg), Edith Boundry (9) and the Williams duo of Lillian & Alysha-Maria (7ppg ea) with 8 apiece. Tal Yakov (27.7ppg) again led the Blues with 17, Alison Fleming (15 @ 4.6ppg) and Ruta Valiulyte 11. For the record Tal Yakov from Ansett set a new DBA record for most points scored in a season with 555. The old record was 544 set by Tamara Sheppard in 2010. The last time the Eagles and Jets took court against each other in a Championship Season GF was 2010 and it was a 9pt win to the Jets…can the Birds turn the table this time around?

The Uni Rebels booked passage to their sixth Grand Final in the last nine years with a 103-83 win over the Palmerston Power.
