The AFLJ 7s series concluded on 22 November with some exiting games in all divisions.
Team Ablett and Team Cockatoo squared off to earn the right to challenge the Jays for the division B title. In the end, the more experience Ablett boys got the win and advanced to the decider. The grand finals was a fierce contest, however Team Jays walked away as the inaugural Div B champsions. Well done boys!
In Div A, the highly fancied Joel’s Crew was awaiting the winner of the Dockers and Team Taylor. Like the other games, the semi-final was a tight affair, with the Dockers snatching a win and moving into the grand final.
The decider was an absolute ripper of a game, with neither team able to gain a decisive lead. Joel’s Crew led by two points with only a minute to go, before an error saw the Dockers launch an attached and kick a goal to win the game just before the siren sounded. It was a fitting game for a fantastic series. Well done to all the boys!
While the Div A girls series was contested by only two teams, they played a fitting final encounter to showcase how much they improved over this short series. We will no doubt see these girls battling it out next winter as the youth girl competitions expands even further in Sydney.
At the end of a great night of footy, the players then enjoyed some pizza and juice, as the recounted their exploits on the field.

We plan to bring this series back in 2019 even bigger and better than this year. As such wee would appreciate if you would fill out a very short 8 question survey to help us improve the competition.
Have a great summer break and we will see everyone for pre-season training in 2018.
