El­lie Konig and Kiara Brack­man with their fight­ing spir­its helped the girls dom­i­nate 28-4.

Grand fi­nal here we come.

As the girls took the court against De­niliquin, nerves were ob­vi­ous, but they soon over­came them and started to play the bas­ket­ball we all knew they were ca­pa­ble of.

It was a com­plete team per­for­mance with pres­sure all over the court from start to end.

The girls were strong un­der the ring con­vert­ing re­bound into goals and our de­fence was tough.

Coach Jodie Camp­bell led the golden girls to a premier­ship 38-18.

A big con­grat­u­la­tions to Chloe, Si­enna, El­lie, Ali­cia, Keira, Ella, Kiara and Leah, who was awarded MVP of the game.

A big thanks to Jodie Camp­bell our coach, Louise Mer­cieca our team man­ager and to all the sup­port­ers that came to cheer the girls on in the grand fi­nal, thank you.
