Final score Eagle 25 : 12 Finch

The team finally found their rhythm in the second and third quarters, battling against some strong defence from Finch. The girls were able to work more closely as a team, with improved passing, better movement and accurate feeds into the circle. The defence also worked hard with some key interceptions and rebounds.

Finch roared back in the fourth quarter determined to make up some lost ground. With some great shooting and defense, Finch never gave up. Eagles struggled with the increased pressure but were able to hold on, winning 25-12 at the final whistle.
