Reigning champions defeated

PORT City Power fought until the dying seconds but it wasn't enough to beat the Mackay Meteorettes in the QBL grand final.

The Meteorettes maintained a healthy lead for the majority of the game to snatch the 2012 premiership from the reigning premiers.

In the dying minutes of the final quarter Power fought back from a 12 point deficit to come within three points of Meteorettes but after a number of fouls Mackay pushed ahead.

Bibby said she was proud of the girls for never giving up and playing until the siren.

"We never quit.

"I couldn't think of a better bunch of girls to go in to battle with."
