To get there, they knocked off the two-time reigning champion, the Perth Wildcats, in a thriller on their home court.

It wasn't pretty; and was at times heated. Melbourne had led by 13 points at the last change and by 12 with seven minutes left on the clock.

That's when Josh Boone was fouled out of the game and the Cats started to charge; with their largest ever crowd for a qualifying game (13,611) lifting the roof with every point.

Melbourne City became the first club to win consecutive W-League titles after beating Perth Glory 2-0 in the grand final at nib Stadium. But her light contact with her hand wasn't enough to deflect the ball away far enough, with the ball instead sailing into the top of the net.

It took his game tally to 18 points. Thai Wesley led the scoring for Melbourne with 21 and 10 rebounds and five assists.

A confident Melbourne held the lead for most of the first half and by as many as 11 points at one stage.

Three consecutive successful long-range shots just before quarter-time gave United a five-point break at the main change.

Wesley produced one of them to give him nine points for the term.

The defensive instincts of the Wildcats kicked in during the second term and with Jean-Pierre Tokoto (11 points) and Cotton (10) leading the game's scoring at the break, the margin had reduced to three.

Tokoto finished with a game high 25 points, his last two coming as the final buzzer sounded, with his team still two points behind.

Perth's late challenge came despite Lucas Walker being fouled out of the game early in the third term. His fourth and fifth fouls came together and included an unsportsmanlike offense.

That fifth foul hurt. It was a technical foul and it put Chris Goulding to the line and he was gifted his first points for the game, almost three minutes into the second half.

He finished with an important nine points.

In winning, Melbourne also exorcised some of the demons still lingering from the 32-point hiding they copped at the hands of the defending champs in round seven.

They will get a chance to make a statement against a top-four side when they travel to New Zealand to play the Breakers on Thursday.

The Wildcats travel to Brisbane to play the Bullets on Sunday.
