MATCH REPORT: Rollerhawks vs Wheelcats
The Be Active Perth Wheelcats have beaten the Rollerhawks 70-63 in an NWBL classic.
There was plenty of feeling between the two league heavyweights and the game absolutely delivered on all expectations.
Perth led from the first bucket but were far from having everything their own way. The Wheelcats took a 7 point lead into the half but had it reduced to just 3 points going into the last. Norris and Eveson led the way for Perth but Kim Robins looked very comfortable as a third threat with 13 points.
Adam Deans against his old club was impressive. He had 17 points but was more impressive with his efficiency and physicality on court. Luke Pople has arrived as one of Australia’s guards and looked most dangerous when the game was up for grabs. He also finished with 17 while Rollerhawks veteran Brett Stibners finished with 16 points.
With less than a minute on the clock the margin was just 3 points and while the Wheelcats did enough to hold on, I cant wait to seem them match up against each other again.
Rollerhawks – Adam Deans (17), Luke Pople (17)
