Grand Final Day. 16/4's. Winston Hills v Wenty Waratahs.
Today is what Grand Finals are all about. Two teams going at it from KO to the last kick of the match. Winsto Minor Premiers & favourites to win up against the 4th placed team that finished many points behind us on the ladder. But you would never have known it as Wenty were certainly up for the match. Up one nil, one all, HT. Up two one, two all, FT. Twenty minutes Golden Goal extra time, no goals.
Penalty Shootout. Wenty goal Winsto goal Wenty goal Winsto goal Wenty miss Winsto goal Wenty miss Winsto miss Wenty miss
Winsto Grand Champions 3-2 Penalty Shootout.
My nerves are shot but so pleased for the team as they have been the best team this season & to lose today would of left a sour taste in the mouth. Special congratulations to my young bloke for winning his first GF on his third attempt.
Commiserations to Wenty but be proud of the way you played & represented yourselves, your coach, parents & your club. Be proud of your effort to make the GF & the way you played today. A very fair but tough match. Loved the attitude of my opposing coach as well towards his own players, my team & the officials. Good to see a young guy with his attitude & I hope to cross paths with him in the future. Thanks to Lidcombe for hosting, grounds were in good condition & thanks to the officials. A relatively easy match to handle but they helped that happen.

Yep Leeds, it was a tight game for sure. The difference in competition points was certainly not evident on the field. Your boys were matched in most aspects of the game, but kept to their plan and got away with it in the end. Wenty should be very proud of the game they brought, especially playing the runaway comp winners. These are the GF's you remember. The 8-0 ones get lost in the memory. Well done . . . congrats to you and your boys. It was good to catch up with you after all the years !.
