They were energized and ready for battle. The seasoned campaigners, CG Rebels took the court at the Grell Hull –Stevens Netball Complex on Sunday night 12th June, to engage the high flying Eagles team in game two of the best of three finals.
They had won the first game and started this one somewhat sluggishly, with the Eagles putting six points on the tins before they made their first conversion.
However, once they got started, despite the incredible fight mustered by the more youthful team and the urgings of their Coach Dwayne Warner from bench side, The CG Rebels never looked back, once they secured the lead.
There were several outstanding plays on both sides of the court and some awful missies and turn overs as well.
However, the vociferous crowd, was well and truly entertained, if not disappointed that there will not be a game three for 2016.
CG Rebels came away the eventual winners and champions once again, winning by the comprehensive margin of 68 points to 55.
In the first match of the evening, CG Massives took on Ole Skool in a battle for third place honours.
That too, was an intense battle but at the final whistle, the Brantley CG Massives prevailed to secure the official third spot in the league, winning with a score line of 64 to 58.
