Box score

Wow! What a semi-final match. We have played several tough games against Hawthorn this season and tonight was certainly no exception. Hawthorn jumped out of the blocks for an early lead and the boys found it tough to score early on.

In the second quarter the boys got their transition offence going and some easy scores put the pressure right back on Hawthorn. The lead changed hands throughout the third quarter with the Eltham boys holding a two point advantage going into the last. Some strong defensive work and smart offence extended the Eltham lead to 10 with three minutes to go and although Hawthorn surged the boys held on for a 6 point win. A week of hard work will culminate tomorrow with a Gold Medal Match against the Sydney Comets. Go Wildcats!
