Sorry for this late GF Update post but I had to spend as lot of time on the couch today recovering form an exhausting 12 hr day at the stadium yesterday.
What an awesome day it was, with great basketball action every round being witnessed by a large parochial crowd. We amazing had 4 of the 29 finals go to overtime. Thrilling the crowd.
There where many upsets non more so than the Men's grade. This battle between rivals Wildcats and Roopena was hyped to one of the classic's with almost every minor rnd encounter going down to the wire in often controversial fashion. Unfortunately minor rnd premiers and favorites Wildcats did not fire in a disappointing performance handing victory to Roo's giving them their 2nd clean sweep of the A grade titles
Roos's WA team made light work of a depleted Demons squad that struggled to get our of first gear.
All clubs shared equally in the successes of the night which was great.
Big thanks to all the volunteers and officials that made The Summer season the success that it was
See you all in 6 weeks for the start of Winter.
This is my Favourite GF portrait of the day and not just because my daughters in there.
It captures the attitude and spirit these girls played with all season, the joy of the occassion, an unexpected overtime win.
Remember anything can and does happen on GF day :)
