Great effort made by our guys to even reach the finals but unfortunately we lost to Bargara. Outstanding effort over the last six week.

We won all our home games against Elliot Heads, Bargara and Woodgate, whilst we lost away at Elliot Heads, lost to Woodgate by only 1 point, but beat Bargara at the home ground. Thanks to all wives, partners and family who supported their men over the pennant period. Outstanding effort.
