Matrix completed the perfect season with a dominant display in the Albany Basketball Association Year 7-8 girls division one grand final on Tuesday night.

After going through the regular season undefeated, Matrix faced Denmark Senior High School in the decider and proved far too strong as they won by 46 points.

Matrix scored the first five points of the game and never looked back from that point, opening up a handy 16-point buffer by half-time.
