After surviving the first 20min of Aub attack on goal and some superb goalkeeping from the best keeper in the comp, the teams went in at 0-0 at half time . Second half started and it was all Kellyville, an early goal from a set piece was followed quickly by a penalty opportunity. The penalty was missed and the game was still in the balance, but Kellyville finishing stronger and fitter, and eventual winners. 1-0 well done boys.
Fred Catterson has been a good ground over the past few years, ( had to have a small dig at CH there, couldn't help it )
12 months ago, at Max Ruddock, the boys stood in a huddle with tears in their eyes and promised to go one better this year.
All very much looking forward to a Grand Final against the top team in the comp in Aub District. Not much between them all year.
I know if the boys win, the coaches will need to wear hats to keep the sun off their bald heads.

Well tomorrow is the day that will end the 2012 season...it's been an enjoyable and incredibly close competition this year.
It's a great day for the kellyville boys who face their first grand final since coming into this div 1 comp with Kolt in the under 11s. While the boys did all the work to get here, I want to mention that without their coaches they may never have gotten this far.
It has been a very successful year for Kolt who also took on an extra team (12/1 girls) this year, who secured the minor premiership in their own comp. achieving a 1 & 2 on the ladder was a great result in itself but even better that he will be proudly watching both his teams 15/1s and 12/1G in Grand Finals this weekend.

As a neutral spectator of the great game was very even for the first half, both Kellyville and Auburn D has several chances in front of goal but great work from both Goalkeepers. The game really took off the 2nd half and while it was still 0-0 the action increased and it was still very even game. Suddenly the Referee gave a penalty to Kellyville for no apparent reason and everyone including the Assistant Referees were perplexed at what was going on. Initially people though it was because the goalkeeper stepped outside his box when he kicked it (but that isn't a penalty) and there was seemingly no explaination.
At that point Kellyville got gifted (and i don't use that term loosely, it was a gift) a free penalty goal that was not deserved and not justified as there was no infringement made. Immediately after that penalty goal Auburn D pushed forward hard and evened it up at 1-1 and the game seem to have exploded from that point on, alot more shots and aggressive play and the Kellyville keeper had to do a lot of work and handled it well to keep their team in the game.
It went over into golden goal extra time still at a frantic pace and both teams were battling it out strong like most of the 2nd half. Auburn D was fouled on the edge of the Kellyville box, the assistant ref had his flag up to call the foul but the Referee ignored her assistant and played on so the assistant ref lowered his flag (very strange), the first extra time break occured and shortly after another Penalty was awarded to Kellyville because of an apparent foul in the box which was seemingly a Kellyville attacker backing into an Auburn D defender to challenge an air ball and fell over. The Auburn D keeper decided to express his outrage at the mediocre refereeing display and earned a red card for his troubles. The penalty was slotted away easy with a sub goalie on the field and Kellyville took the victory.
Hopefully there is some review of that referee's performance, the association should really appoint an experienced referee to host important (final) matches.
Congrats to Kellyville for the win and Auburn D for the minor premiership, unfortunately it was not an amazing spectacle as it was built up to be, for dubious reasons.
No need to be ignorant please. Everyone on the ground including the supporters for both Kellyville and Auburn D had no idea why a penalty was given. The Kellyville bench can cheer for scoring a goal but still be clueless as to why they were even given the shot.

Congratulations to both teams for a tough hard fought Grand Final battle.. As reported the game was pretty even and it could have gone either way. The one thing about GRand Finals is more than likely there is someone there with a video camera. I'll admit I didn't know what the first penalty was for (and I was standing just behind linesman) but after watching the video footage last night I saw exactly what the referee saw. As the kv striker followed the ball in to pressure the keeper after the shot on goal. The auburn keeper (quite clearly on footage) gave the kv striker an upward elbow. It happened so fast but obviously at the time when the referee was watching. Nonetheless the auburn keeper did not get away with it resulting in a penalty. It was a bit arrogant of him to even try something so unnecessary.
I should also point that while we spectators did not know what it was for, I can assure you the players knew what they were taking the penalty shot for!!
The second penalty was not the kv player "backing into a auburn player" but in actual fact once again clearly on video the kv player was taken out at the knees by auburn player. With a little push in the back. Which probably more out of desperation than intent. It was golden goal and kv where in their box. defensive mistakes are made when the pressure is on. The linesman got the call spot on. IMHO if that penalty hadn't been called this game would gone down to penalty shoot out. The game of football can be cruel and sometimes close matches such as it was can come down to a game of penalties. But don't take away what was a successful day for the kellyville boys from them. If they were able to score off the other teams errors then good on them. They still had to get the ball in the back of the net and there is nothing like GF pressure when faced with a penalty shot.
The thing to remember is capitalising on the oppositions errors is after all what the game of soccer is about....kellyville to their credit did that yesterday!
Quite happy to supply footage to any dubious parties..
We have all the been on the wrong end of referee calls and it is easy to blame the Ref when the result doesnt go our way but.. Somebody has to win and yesterday it was kellyville.
The games between these 2 teams have been airtight all year and yesterday's game was no different.
Good luck to Auburn in champion of champions...
Reason for edit: Just cleaning up the massive amount of empty line feeds. The ol capt..
Oko The ref gave the penalty because the defender push the ville attacker out of the way of his goal keeper. As we all know you cannot just shove someone out of the way and if you wish to do it in your box then more fool you.
And you keeper got sent from the field for swearing at the young femal ref. now I'm guessing he will get 17 weeks for this.
The second penalty was for another push in the box again your own fault. Don't blame the ref blame the clumsiness of the challenge in the box.
And for the spectator going around calling the young ref a stupid B and carry on grow up.
And the father walking around telling his son to go and smash the ville players. Please take your son out of soccer and do everyone a favor. It's only a game not the end off the world.
As normal very good winners
Anyway for our boys UP THE VILLE
This is my opinion and i don't give a toss what you think
I don't wish to keep this negativity alive but the question i have for a ref, is if a defender gets in the way of a goalie and goalie elbows him out of the way, is that a reason for penalty shot? When reviewing rules penalty shots are awarded if you interfere will defender taking a shot at goal. The ball was still in the goalies hand. Again my review of rules is that a card could be issued. This is the issue auburn has, having spoken with auburn boys none held any malice towards KV players, they played a great game as usual and congratulations on your win. Its a shame the people on this thread don't share the same good grace and respect that has developed between AD and KV, i couldn't pick a more deserving team to take out the GF. You have a great bunch of kids and Coaching team. For me the man of the match was the KV player with red hair, well done on a great game! He was the boy to mark, if you could!
Well said mate. The pen was for the AD defender pushing the striker and since the keeper still had the ball it is deemed to be in play so hence a pen if the ball was out off play then yes no pen and a card. it was not on the keeper
And yes ginge was our best on the day played very smooth all day. He was my best. He had his school mates there so yes he had pressure to preform and he did. I recond he has a new girl friend by now
This is my opinion and i don't give a toss what you think
Well done to Kellyville on their win yesterday. I left after about 10 minutes into the second half & at that stage it was very hard to predict a winner as no team had really stamped their authority on the match.
Unfortunately for me, that is about the time the match started to pick up a bit so I am told.
Some interesting comments in the posts above.
A seemingly unbiased match report from mrskoltville that appears to contradict what Stan saw! Surely Stan you did not get it wrong! The video shows the keeper making contact but you say it was the defender. Anyway. And Stan, were they Blonde streaks I saw in your hair, hold on to your youth as long as you can mate!
I am wondering which Laws of The Game book you are reading because it surely isn't the correct one. A penalty is awarded for any foul committed inside the penalty box that, if that same foul was committed outside the box, a direct free kick would be awarded. It has nothing to do with where inside that box or which direction the attacker is facing or if he/she is in the process of shooting or passing the ball back towards their own goal.
So the 'Ranga' was the MOM. He not only had some school mates their but an ex team mate & an ex coach cheering him on. Good on you 'Ranga'. 2 GF wins - good stuff.
Bad luck to Auburn Districts. Always hard when it comes down to the GF when you have been the best team all season & you miss out. Good luck in the COC's.
