   WNBL Finals: Back-to-back for Canberra!
The Canberra Capitals have won their second consecutive WNBL title after a 73-59 victory over the favourite Sydney Flames in the 2006/07 WNBL Grand Final. This is a great achievement for the Capitals who won this trophy without Lauren Jackson. Canberra's Tracey Beatty (202-C-79)  has been voted the game's Most Valuable Player.
The game was very close during the first hald (39-39), Canberra took a five-point lead at the end of the third quarter (50-45) but a 15-0 run in the last period really sealed the win for the Caps. Natalie Hurst (163-G-83) was the game's leading scorer with 15pts but the MVP of the game was Tracey Beatty who recorded 12pts 6/11FG 12rbs and 3bs. Four other Canberra players scored in double-figures: Tully Bevilaqua (12pts 8rbs), Jessica Bibby(11pts), Donna Loffhagen (10pts) and Kellie Abrams (10pts). Natalie Porter (185-F-80) led the Flames with 15pts but like the entire squad she was glued in Canberra defense: 5/17FG. The entire Sydney team only shot for 30.0%FG in this game! Trisha Fallon (190-F-72) put an end to a brillant career with 13pts and Michelle Musselwhite (176-G/F-82) added 11pts
Canberra Coach Carrie Graf, who was also was named Coach of the Year, attributed the win to her teams dedication and hard work.
"This goes out not only to this team but every player I have ever coached," she said. "The players make me the coach I am."
While Sydney coach Karen Dalton put the loss down to a misfiring offence.
"I think the better team won on the day," she said. "They shot the ball better than us and that's what it comes down to in these games. I don't think we responded very well offensively. Our offensive execution in the second half wasn't fantastic. I think we gave up to many offensive rebounds, missed alot of foul shots and we just didn't execute offensively and get the ball into the right people's hands enough."
 
All the players will now enjoy a well-deserved break except Canberra's 18-year olds Abby Bishop (189-C-88) and Kiera Shiels (190-C-88) who will be back on the court as soon as tomorrow in the U20 Nationals tournament in Ballarat.
