Kilsyth had earned home court advantage, having defeated the Raiders in their Semi-Final clash, but Knox proved they don’t mind traveling, opening up a 3-point lead at quarter time. They extended it to 8 by halftime, and with a 23-13 third period the game looked all but over. The Lady Cobras played out the match to their credit, reducing the margin to 11 at one stage in the final term but Knox’s effort was superior in the end.

DANDENONG 88 (Terdich 14, Papavs 14) def GEELONG 47 (Williamson 11, Rogers 10)

The visitors shot just 1-9 from the three point line and were -13 in rebounds, -4 in assists, -9 in steals and +14 in turnovers. Hope Terdich shot at 60% from the field and pulled down 7 rebounds while for the visitors, Deanna Smith managed just 1-10 for 6 points.
