Preliminary Finals weekend at Blackman Park

We have been chosen to host three preliminary finals at Blackman Park this weekend.

The day starts with our U11 joint venture team, Lane Cove/North Ryde U11 Menegola team coming up against the Pittwater Tigers. Team Menegola had a magnificent regular season, finishing in second place. They took on a strong Westbrook team in a top of the table semi-final last week. Unfortunately they went down in a tough contest, but because of the ladder position, earned a second chance. They now play Pittwater for a place in the grand final.

One of our other JV teams will also be playing. The Lane Cove/North Ryde U14 team had a classic semi-final against Glebe Newtown. It was a tough contested battle, with no team giving an inch. The boys started the last quarter strongly, with an early goal putting them up 8 points. However, Glebe fought back with goal of their own and it was back to a 2 point margin. With only 20 seconds remaining, an attempt at goal by Gleve missed and the boys got home with a one point win.

Both teams have had a great year and we would encourage everyone to come down and support them.

We could also do with some help managing the BBQ/canteen and helping out with ground management. Please let Daniel Hynes know if you are willing and able
