Machado not enough for Magic

An inspired Mandurah Magic outfit has fallen three-points short of knocking over the Willetton Tigers.

Scott Machado scored 31-points for the Magic but it wasn't enough as the Tigers came up trumps in the clutch in the crunch moments to close out the match 94-91.

The second half had two contrasting quarters as the Tigers went on a 28-16 scoring spree before the Magic nearly hunted them down in the last scoring the Willetton 30-18.

Jerami Grace was also handy for the Mandurah scoring 21-points.

Earlier, the Tigers women got the better of the Magic 66-53.
