WNBL Finals: Melbourne Boomers stay alive and tie the series against Southside Flyers (96-77)

March 11, 2023 | WNBL news

Cayla George reminded the fans why she’s MVP, giving a standout performance to send the Semi Final Series to three games.

After losing game one, the Boomers delivered an impressive performance in front of the 2,700 fans at Melbourne Sport’s Centre in Parkville this Saturday night to prove their finals experience and show their hunger for a back-to-back Championship.

George and Kristy Wallace were the standouts – each scoring 28 and 27 to give the Boomers a comfortable lead throughout each term and answer back to Southside’s aggressive offence in the third quarter.

Top performers:

  • Cayla George (Melbourne Boomers): 28 pts, 6 reb, 4 ast
  • Kristy Wallace (Melbourne Boomers): 27 pts, 7 reb, 6 ast, 5 stl
  • Tiffany Mitchell (Melbourne Boomers): 18 pts, 4 reb, 1 ast, 2 stl
  • Sara Blicavs (Southside Flyers) 15 pts

The next WNBL showdown will see the Perth Lynx take on Townsville Fire at 3:30pm AWST at Bendat Basketball Centre. As Townsville continue their winning streak, Perth have the difficult task of leveling the series after losing Game One. The game will be streamed via ESPN, and tickets are available to purchase here.
