Wow what a day! Two very tough games for the boys today that tested their mental toughness. The morning game was a must win against Illawarra to move through to the quarter finals. It was a tough contest from the opening tip off with the Hawks holding the lead at half time and scores even heading into the last. The boys rallied and had a 29-8 last term to secure the win and a sport in the top 8.

The nights quarter final saw the boys match up against North Adelaide. Another fiercely fought match that followed a similar story to the mornings match. North Adelaide held the lead at the half and it was tied at the end of the third quarter. Tight defence at the beginning of the fourth quarter held both teams scoreless until the 4 minute mark. The boys held their nerve and knocked in some crucial foul shots to get the win and advance to the final 4. The semi final sees the boys match up against Hawthorn which will be another closely fought contest for a spot in the Gold Medal Match.
