Lions win their third league trophy
THORNLIE Lions claimed grand final glory in the WAAFL C1 league with a gutsy 89-74 victory over Kingsley at Claremont Oval.
The Lions led at every change and withstood a second half fight back from their opponents to win their third league premiership.
Kingsley were favourites heading into the game having finished top of the league, but Thornlie shot out to an early lead and never looked back.
Brad Fry claimed best on ground honours for the Lions, while Aaron Walsh and Dwayne Morrison proved a handful up forward all game long.
