Nunawading put in arguably their best performance for the year on the way to taking out their first mens Championship since 1995.

The Spectres dominated all facets of the game, as an underperforming Bendigo were left to lament losing the championship game for the second year running.

Shane McDonald (187-G-85, college: Nova SE) dominated the Braves backcourt, pouring in 28 points for the game on his way to the game MVP.

Nunawading had an uncharacteristically strong start to the game. Three-point plays to both McDonald and import Eric Williams helped the Spectres take an eight-point lead before the Braves had registered a field goal.

Defensive player of the year Luke Meyer struggled against the athleticism and strength of Williams on the defensive end, as the Spectres set the tone early with rugged post-play.

Bendigo found their rhythm towards the end of the term, with East Conference MVP Ivan McFarlin (203-F-82, college: Oklahoma St.) helping himself to five points and five rebounds, and only trail 20-15 at the first break.

Both teams then traded baskets to open the second term.

McDonald continued to use his pace to score in the open court while Braves reserve Chris Hogan found his stroke from the perimeter to drain two threes for the quarter.

But the turning point came towards the end of the quarter when McFarlin left the game with a hamstring injury. From there on, Bendigo failed to combat Nunawadings size in the frontcourt and the Spectres progressively began to get on top.

Without McFarlins presence in the key, Nunawadings Nathan Kennedy had two open lay-ups to finish out the quarter and give the Spectres an 8-point edge heading into the main change.

Smelling blood and hungry for a championship, Nunawading came out firing in the third.

McDonald tore the game wide open with a myriad of close, mid- and long range shooting to light-up Bendigo for 13 points during the quarter.

Bendigos dependence on McFarlin was exposed, as Nunawading took control in the key. A Hicks dunk to finish the quarter exemplified the discrepancy in the laneway, as the Spectres finished 19 points ahead at the last break, with the title virtually theirs.

Braves coach Ben Harvey tried to make a change and peg the lead back in the fourth, starting Adam Tanner in the centre.

But Chris Cameron physically dominated the undersized Tanner, and Nunawading continued to control the game.

In a sign of frustration, Braves centre Sam Harris (221-C-84, college: ODU) got in a tussle with Kennedy late in the fourth, but it was too little too late as Nunawading triumphed 88-61.

Despite only two points from ex-Boomer Luke Kendall, Nunawading completely trounced Bendigos backcourt, courtesy of Shane McDonald. The South All-star showed up the Braves pair of Probert and Randall, and led his team to the championship in a show of poise, aggression and bravery.

Final Score

Nunawading 88 Shane McDonald 28 points (10-16 FGM-A, 4-7 3PM-A), Eric Williams 15 points 7 rebounds


Bendigo 61 Chris Hogan 13 points (3-8 3PM-A), Luke Meyer 13 points five rebounds
