What a lovely day for football but unfortunately we only had one winner today – the AAWB1 crowned premiers for 2014. Top effort ladies, Joel and Julie!
Commiserations to the AAWA2 who staged an amazing comeback narrowly losing to Connells Point in the dying stages of the game – we were extremely proud of your effort.
Another commis to O35B, even tho they were Minor Premiers and were the team to beat, they got beaten in their GF – but never mind, if you had fun, you won…
Big thanks to all the supporters that turned up today - your support (especially after a rather hairy presentation night) was much appreciated.
Here’s to Season 2015!
Take your Panadol, dig out your Rangers shirt, and get yourselves down to Illinden Sports Centre, Rockdale, to watch our three senior teams in action – the AAWB1 (11am); AAWA2 (1pm) and O35B (3pm).
Go Rangers!! (oh, and if anyone found my reading glasses from last night I’d be grateful…).
Let’s hear if for the AAWA2 and AAWB1 who both convincingly won their Finals last night to head into the Grand Finals – great effort! The St George Association website competition page does have the most current 2014 Winters Final series draw, but also keep as eye out as we attempt to post updated information when we get it.
By now we hope you are all gearing up for the Senior Presentation Night to be held this Saturday 13 September at St George Masos.
We would like you to arrive at 6.30 (when the bar opens!) so we can start our presentation at 7pm SHARP. Please be prompt as we have a lot to get through.
Caoch and Managers – if you haven’t given team numbers to Tracey then you’d better hurry or your team won’t get any food…
Note that St George has updated the Final series draws with games being held this week.
Wednesday 10 September:
- AAWB1 v Connells Point 6pm Illinden Sports Centre (Final)
- AAWA2 v ASOW 8pm Illinden Sports Centre (Final)
Sunday 14 September:
- O35B (Grand Final) – please note this game has changed again so I won’t post details until we have a confirmed time
Let’s hope we get on the park and have some wins.
Congrats to the O35C1 who defeated Banksia today 2-0 to be crowned Premiers 2014 – well done! More fotos from the Finals series can be found here.
The stadium is closed and games are being deferred. All other games are still on. We’ll keep you posted. Bummed!
