Tigers fall to Bulleen

The Melbourne Tigers Youth Championship Womens team’s season has heartbreakingly ended with a 82 to 70 loss to Bulleen at MSAC on Sunday.

Bulleen were just too good on the day with an excellent 51.9% Field Goal percentage as well as 40% from the 3 point line compared to Melbourne’s 30.6% and 30% from Field Goal and 3 point range.

Bulleen blew Melbourne away in the first half 41 to 21 before Melbourne fought back to win the third and fourth quarters to trim the margin down to twelve points at the final whistle.

Briana Babic top scored for the Tigers with 25 points from 25 minutes on the court, Peri Kalka was the top rebounder with 12 and Ellen Kett led assists for the Tigers with four.

With this Preliminary Final loss the season has ended with just two losses all season, a record that the ladies should feel really proud of for they have played to the best of their ability all season long, Tigers fans are proud of the the team’s achievements this season and wish them a great offseason before the new campaign starts in 2016.
