If you were sitting in front of me in the AIS arena last night, I apologise for what must be a suffering of temporary deafness.
In front of a sell-out (even standing tickets ended up being sold to accommodate fans) screaming crowd, the Caps downed the Boomers last night 61-58 to grab their 6th WNBL title. The lead seesawed (sickeningly if you ask me – although others might say the crowd certainly got their money’s worth for a thrilling match-up) between the Caps and Boomers 11 times throughout the four quarters, including ending the first half with scores dead even. There was no certainty of victory until the final siren went – and then the celebrations began.
What a game!!! All players stepped up and all deserve equal congratulations for getting the Caps, and Canberra, over the line. Congrats to Nat Hurst for the award of Grand Final Most Valuable Player.
