Finals football is over for our Division 1 Reserves squad after going down to the Western Magpies at Springwood’s Lowe Oval. After exceeding all expectations for their first season up in Division 1 by finishing the regular season in third place, the 2’s were unable to capitalise on the hard-earned second chance.
After a mammoth effort the previous week against a highly fancied Palm Beach unit the varsity lads were hit hard out of the blocks, being kept goalless as the Magpies piled on 7 goals 2 behinds in the first quarter. Despite an improved effort through the rest of the game from the Red Lions a strong Magpies mob ran out victors 19.13.127 to 4.8.32. The Magpies then went on to knock off Palm Beach the following week by a solitary point and will face off against the number one side, Surfers Paradise, in the Grand Final this weekend. The seniors Grand Final will follow with Springwood and Palm Beach locking horns at 2pm.
Congratulations to our Division 1 Seniors, Reserves and Colts on a fantastic effort in their debut season in Division 1.Facebook API came back with a faulty result. You may be accessing an album you do not have permissions to access.
