Pendo White 1 Winsto White 8
I think the score line says it all and Pendle Hill's recent run of form is well documented.
Thankfully that win locks up second place because we've had a lot of troubles trying to schedule our catchup game with Baulkham Hills. Apparently they felt we should forfeit the game because they couldn't play mid week and didn't want to play on a Sunday. Anyway, it won't be played now because it has no impact on the competition.
I'll echo Sneaky's sentiments. It's been a great and even competition to-date and I think all four teams go into the finals thinking they can win it. A shame your boys made their run too late Parko, you guys have been on fire. No idea who we'll see next year with this Hills association debacle going on but hopefully we'll see you a lot of you.

Pendo Black 5 Winsto White 3
1-1 at half time and we were in it up to our neck having lead 1-0 early on, but Pendo were too good in the second half on a hot day. We kept within striking distance most of the half but kept shooting ourselves in the feet with some poor turnovers in our own half. You can't give a good team cheap possession and we paid the price.
I heard Winsto Black beat Greystanes 3-0. Any match report?
Winsto blk v Greystanes. Winsto went into half time 3 goals up, 2nd half Greystanes had most of the better field position but couldn't use the wind to their advantage. Pretty solid display by winsto overall. At least we know it'll be a pendo v winsto grand final.

Not a great way to end the season, conceding 9 goals over two weeks. A disappointing end to what had been a great year. If I'm being honest, the two best teams are playing in the GF next week. Down 1-0 at HT courtesy of a penalty that could have been a free kick either way. Our guy was pushing one of them while he was grabbing a different guy from our team but from the refs angle he only saw our push so penalty. Pretty sure that was the only penalty we conceded all year and it happened to come in a final, half our luck. Second half and the blacks bolted out of the gates and got a deserved second. From there we went all out attack and the blacks put plenty of numbers in defence which made it hard for us to score and opened up the counter and that's how they scored two more. I don't think the small field suited our game, we don't mind playing a through ball or ten and they just weren't the right play on a small field. The only other excuse I can think of is having lost our second leading goal scorer for the year last time we played the blacks meant we became a one trick pony upfront.
Good luck to both teams next week. We'll probably be there heckling from the sideline.
The wheels well and truly fell off for us in the back end of the season with regards to players missing, barely scraping into the semis (if St Michaels actually had their win against Baulko accepted then they would have overtaken us as we drew against Castle Hill RSL - even though it was somehow recorded as a win).
To finish up with the last 3 games with our 3 worst losses of the season was pretty disappointing but overall it was a decent season.
Congrats to Pendo Blk on coming first, they have been the most consistent team all year. However, Winsto BLK seem to have the wood on them. I reckon it might go to penalties. I'll be going to watch another GF on Sat but if they are at the same ground then i might be able to watch the game.
Winsto blk gf winners 3-1. Had the wood on pendo all year and it showed going 1 nil up into half time. Pendo equalised 15 mins into 2nd half only for winsto go back into the lead 5 mins later. The 3rd came from a free kick just outside the 18 yard box. Top season pendo, minor premiers for a reason. All credit to them, as they were the best team all year. Winsto blk just had the confidence and form leading in and it showed today. One of the tightest comp ive played in a long time. UP THE MIGHTY BEARS.
Another tight, tense game that didn't go our way on the day. Congrats to every team in the comp for a good clean year, I felt that any team could win on the day and that's the best type of comp to be in.
