THE Perry Lakes Hawks (45) were de­feated by the Wil­let­ton Tigers (49) in the Boys Shield Gold Medal.

The Wil­let­ton boys took out the U14 club cham­pi­onships – a na­tional com­pe­ti­tion – in an all-WA gold medal match.

The Hawks opted for riskier long shots in this match, while the Tigers tried to get as close to the hoop as pos­si­ble to score, but both teams’ strate­gies negated each other, with a close bat­tle right un­til the fi­nal siren.

Perry Lakes looked in con­trol late in the se­cond, but Wil­let­ton’s per­sis­tent ef­forts in the paint even­tu­ally pre­vailed as they claimed the shield gold medal in a clas­sic.

WIL­LET­TON'S first­grade cricket team was de­feated by Clare­mont-Ned­lands in a dis­ap­point­ing first round on Satur­day at Bur­ren­dah Re­serve.

Clare­mont-Ned­lands bat­ted first, ral­ly­ing an im­pres­sive 192 runs on 50 overs with 7 wick­ets.

Wil­let­ton fol­lowed, all out for 73. THE WA Thun­der­sticks and Di­a­monds en­sured they fin­ished their 2017 Aus­tralian Hockey League (AHL) cam­paigns on a pos­i­tive note af­ter se­cur­ing wins in their fi­nal fix­tures on Satur­day.

The Thun­der­sticks de­feated Tas­ma­nia 2-1 be­fore the WA Di­a­monds thrashed South Aus­tralia 4-1.

The re­sults mean both sides fin­ished in fifth place, af­ter fail­ing to reach the semi-fi­nals.

Vic­to­ria won both the men's and women's com­pe­ti­tions on Sun­day.
