Starting every week with 9 or 10 players finally caught up with us! We need to start getting a full squad down to games. In saying that we had 11 players by about the 25th min mark so still should of gone on with it. Pendo put in a very solid shift in defence and nicked 2 goals against the run of play. Credit to them tho as they had us down 2-1 with 10 mins to go when we grabbed the equaliser. Hopefully we can hit back with a win next week.
Holroyd Wht 6 Holroyd Blk 1 It would of been nice if the boys from our own club could of helped us out a bit with a reschedule or at the very least a slight time change. As they didn't want to and decided to dig their heels in we didn't need much more motivating to put them to the sword. Comfortable win.
hey sab after our semi loss to Newington one of there players told me they would not be willing to play against auburn again this year hence there forfeit. we lost to them so no hard feelings on our side but feel sorry for the team in 5th who could have replaced Newington in the finals since it seems they were always planning to forfeit when the time came to play auburn. personally we had no issues with auburn but im guessing something happened during the season
Sneaky, Thanks for the info mate. Seems very strange. Why bother playing in the finals if that was the case? as they were going to always have to meet Auburn eventually if they were to win this comp. Would of been better to let 5th placed team have a crack as you said. Anyway it is what it is. Bring on the GF!
Congrats lads. Undefeated champions! We did it the hard way getting up in extra time, but we got there in the end. Big shout out to the AAM8 Holroyd side who also got up in their GF and stuck around to cheer us on. Great season boys!!!
