Photos from the 2017 AJIHL Grand Final game between the league leading Adelaide Generals against the third placed Perth Sharks. Both teams accounted for their competitors (Generals 5-0 against the Sydney Sabres, and Sharks 5-2 against the second placed Brisbane Blitz) in their semi finals to set up a first vs second showdown. The game was a tight affair until the Generals found a way past the Sharks and would have a 3-1 lead with a goal to Jake Riley. The Sharks bit back to send a scare to the Generals with the 3-2 scoreline. However the General saw off the challenge and piled on 2 quick goals to Ryan Foll and Jordan Geyer. Final score in an entertaining and exciting final was Generals 5, Sharks 3. The win would see a South Australian team win a national championship for the first time in 10 years. In the Bronze game for 3rd place the Sabres overcame the Blitz 6-3.
