WEEKLY WRAP

 

Saturday 14.09.19 - GRAND FINAL

Year 7 Red 7-5 = 47 v Hills Rangers Grey 0-1= 1

There were a lot of nervous parents and excited boys before the Grand Final and the team was aiming to continue their good form over the past month. Our first two matches against Hills Rangers Grey were very close matches and we were expecting another similar game. We started well, playing hard, pressure football and went into quarter time with a two goal lead. With our midfield playing well and our defence on top of the Rangers forwards, we went in four goals up at half time.

 

The importance of the third quarter was the main point at half time and the team continued where they left off with winners all over the ground. At three quarter time we were seven goals up.

The final quarter was even, with both teams managing two goals.

 

Congratulations to the whole squad for your Grand Final victory – you thoroughly deserved the win!

Thank you to all the sensational parent support yet again – and to Bruce for stepping in when we lost one of our water runners to injury. A special thank you to all of the supporters who came down and cheered on the team in the Grand Final – the boys really appreciated the support from the sideline.

Sunday 15.09.19 – GRAND FINAL

Year 10 12-8 = 90 v Caversham 4-7 = 31

After the boys had earnt the week off following a thrilling 2 point win over the previously undefeated Kalamunda, tensions and nerves had been quite high throughout the squad in preparation for the Grand Final. Both times during the season, Mazenod had come away with the win (3 points in Round 3, 10 points in Round 13), but both had been very competitive contests until the end, so the boys knew they would need to be at their best to win. The boys looked switched on from the very start of the contest, hitting every tackle and bump that came their way. The pressure from all lines was relentless and the boys took a 20-3 lead going into quarter time. The boys started the 2nd quarter exactly where they left off, not giving up anything in the contest. If Caversham hit the contest hard, Mazenod would hit it harder and at half time Mazenod took a 44-11 lead.

 

The message at half time was simple: let’s end this contest and really tighten the screws down.

The third quarter will go down as some of the best ball movement this group of young men has ever produced.  Their ability to intercept, switch and rebound was unmatchable.  They won the inside and the outside football and deserved the 72-17 lead they took into the final break. The fourth quarter was another hard fought affair, with the boys fighting hard until the very end to finish with a 90-31 result.

Congratulations to every single player involved in the 35 player squad, including both those that did and didn't make the GF team.  To those that did play in the GF, every single player gave 100% in that game and I'm so proud of you all.  To those that didn't, you are just as important, as we certainly would not have made it to this point without your help and contributions throughout the season.

 

Thank you very much to all the parents that have helped in all the many roles throughout the season.  I know both myself and all the boys are very grateful for all the time you have given to us this season.

Finally, a big thank you to the Mazenod supporter base we had on the day and throughout the season.  I know the boys and myself could feel the support, especially in the Grand Final when we needed it and it's that level of support from everyone that really sets us aside from the other clubs in the league.
