After a disappointing away loss to the Adelaide Lightning, the Capitals were looking to break their current season curse (two away losses) against the Lynx for the Indigenous round of the WNBL season. 

The Capitals started out strong in their one of kind uniforms to finish the first quarter up 30 points to 10 and by half-time, they had secured a 23 point lead.

Perth wouldn't go down without a fight and attempted playing a more aggressive style for the third quarter with both sides drawing multiple offensive charging fouls. It looked promising for Perth as they managed to get back within less than 20 points by the end of the quarter.

However, Kelsey Griffin (27pts,15rebs) and Leilani Mitchell (22pts, 7asts, 5stls) put an end to the attempted comeback, scoring consecutive points and causing turnovers respectively to crush Perth's spirit to blow the game apart and win by 32 points.

The Lynx seem to have lost their roar with a third consecutive defeat and with all teams but Sydney Uni still very much in the playoff picture, this year's WNBL competition looks to still be completely wide open.
