Under 13’s

What a wonderful night we had on Wednesday night for the under 13’s grand final and playoff. It was great to see most players for each team there on the night.

Both games were very tight which shows just how far all the kids have come with the development of their skills! As Sally said on the night, moving the games to full field following the end of the other junior competitions has been a great success!

North White and Kookaburras finished in a 1 all draw.

Royals def North Grey 1-0 following extra time drop off golden goal, with the goal literally being scored in the last second!

A big congratulations to Royals who took out both the minor and major premiership this season.

Also a big thank you to Sally, Ros, Honey and all the other volunteers who do countless hours of work behind the scenes so that the junior competitions can go ahead.

Don’t forget about summer comp! Otherwise hopefully we will see you all again next season.

Ps. I’m having trouble uploading the team photos here so I’ll put them on the Facebook page.

Under 13’s – Publication of team photos

I would like to publish the team photos that were taken tonight at the presentation. I would just post the team photos, no names would be mentioned.

Women’s finals results

Rustlers and Bluebees were 1 all at full time. The game went into extra time and still resulted in a draw so Rustlers advance to the grand final as there were placed higher in the point score.
