WESLEY South Perth has much to celebrate as it is now in a position to regain the Premier League title after advancing to the grand final last Wednesday with a 4-3 victory over UWA at the Perth Hockey Stadium.

Trent Mitton opened the scoring for WASPs with a 10th- minute goal.

In the second half, Murray McIntyre, who was celebrating his 500th Premier League game for the club, fittingly scored in the 55th minute.

Additional goals came from Bryn De Bes and Brandon Gibbs, adding to the margin.

Frank Main scored the opening goal for UWA in the 26th minute.

Frazer Gerrard and Tom Wickham pocketed goals for UWA in the second half, but in the end WASPS were too good.

The grand final will be held this Saturday at the Perth Hockey Stadium.
