Under 10 Boys
A fabulous game for the Under 10s Grand Final between the Wildcats and the Tigers.
The Tigers went into the match as favourites yet the Tigers came ready to give it their all for the battle ahead.
Both sides played hard and the game was forced into overtime.
The crowd provided plenty of support and in the end the victory went to the Wildcats who never gave in.
Congratulations to both coaches Andy Jaques and Donna Stephens and all the coaches and teams who played during the season.
Awards for the Under 10s went to: Most Improved Baxter Donovan, MVP Archie Jaques, Runner-up MVP Van Kreeck and Encouragement Award Charlie Hargreaves.
Under 12 Boys
The Under 12 Boys Grand Final saw the Boomers play off against the Kings.
The Boomers, who finished top of the ladder, had an easy run into the grand final while fourth placed Kings fought all the way for their place.
The Boomers started off well and were hard to beat in defence.
At half time the Boomers led the Kings only by 3 points.
The Kings started to fire after half time but were held off by a very disciplined Boomers team. Both teams had trouble getting their goals to sink.
Boomers won by 4 points in what was a very close game.
Thank-you to all the coaches, the umpires, the scorers and most of all the children for giving it their best for the entire season.
The Best and Fairest jointly went to Ollie Cope and Zac Forge. Runner-up Best and Fairest jointly went to Jaxon Potter and Bohdi Leonard. Most Improved went to Joe Knight and Encouragement Award went to Oliver Collins.
B Reserve Girls
The Gators 15 defeated the Heat 12 in what was a very close B Reserve Girls Grand Final.
