A great day for the football club with the senior side doing everything asked of them and earning a direct passage to the Grand Final in two weeks.
A predictably tough arm wrestle was the order of the first half but while the score was close, we took confidence into half time knowing that we were winning the key battles across the ground.
That confidence was vindicated in the third quarter with our boys putting together their best 30 minutes of team football for the year and paving the way for a well-earned 36 point victory.
Led by Scott Gumbleton, Dan Kelly and Kieran Malone in the middle, Adam Fulton down back and Mick Italia up forward, there was also two outstanding individual performances from Adam Barclay and Mikey Edwards.
We now have the opportunity to rest for a week and welcome back several players for the big dance on September 9.
