Top performers: Z. Cunningham 24 points/9 rebounds, S. Clarke 15 points, T. Clifford 10 points/11 rebounds
Although short handed the Wildcats came to play on Sunday afternoon at Eltham High School against local rivals the Bulleen Boomers. A 24-15 opening period set the tone for Eltham as they won every quarter of the game with all players hitting the scoreboard. A whopping 54-20 points in the paint pretty much sums up the height advantage and inside presence the Wildcats had which was too much for the Boomers. Zak Cunningham, Sean Clarke and Tom Clifford were at their absolute best.
