Wildcats season over, Burnie finals dream continues
Burnie has ended Wynyard's finals dream in both men's and women's NWBU Coastal basketball first semi-finals in Devonport last night.
The Tigers scored an emphatic 29-point victory over Wynyard in the men's semi, while the Burnie women survived a late challenge from the Wildcats to score a six-point victory.
Emmit Smith top-scored in the men's match with 21 points for the Tigers, while Burnie's Mariah Payne netted an impressive 40 points in the women's victory.
Burnie men will now meet the loser of next Tuesday night's second semi-final between Ulverstone and Penguin, while the Tigers women will take on the loser of the Devonport-Penguin semi-final for a berth in the grand final.
