2012 Grand Final Results
Congratulations to the Under 12B, Under 13C and the Under 15A on teams on finishing 2012 as Premiers. A fantastic achievement.
The 3 teams all won their Grand Finals on Sunday, August 19, to cap off fantastic years. It is a fantastic result for the junior club to see 3 of the teams win on Sunday.
It was also great to see the Under 17A team fight back in their Grand Final at Vermont. The boys got off to a slow first half, but showed great spirit in the 2nd half. They had a fantastic last quarter and got within 8 points of East Ringwood after giving them a large lead to eventually go down by 19 points. You should be proud of your efforts for the year.
