A NAIL biting Round 10 delivered a hard fought win for the Willetton Tigers women against Mandurah Magic in the SBL.

Strong defensive pressure in the last quarter had the Tigers up 68-66, and with 41 seconds on the clock Lara Napier was sent to the free throw line twice, sinking scoring three out of four shots to put the Tigers 71-68 ahead with 21 seconds to go.

Mandurah did not stand a chance after missing their last shot, leaving the win in Willetton’s hand.

The Willetton Tigers men had a tough game against Mandurah Magic, but like the women before them, came through with a win, 88-76.

Kyle Armour was the man of the match, providing much needed midcourt support and assists to the team.

On Friday, Willetton host East Perth Eagles with tip off for women from 6.30pm and the men to follow at 8.30pm.
