Night Time Champions
Congratulations to our champion Men’s B Grade 4 and the Junior A Grade 3 teams on their premiership wins in the last two weeks.
The Men’s site had a dramatic and thrilling victory over Keilor East T.C. on November 30th. The team, consisting of Russell Bedggood, Terry Benton, Michael Benton, Tim Benton, Liam Benton, Anthony Lieu & Kieran Benton, scraped into fourth position and knocked off first in the semi final. The match started off at West Brunswick, but after the first two sets, the match was moved down the road to Royal Park due to faulty court lights. After a few hard fought sets, Doutta Galla prevailed and won the final by about 12 games. Celebrations are still continuing……..
|The Junior side, consisting of Kavindu Gamage, James Reid, Drew Gilpin and Kieran Benton defeated St John Bosco’s by 9 games at Moomba Park T.C. on the 7th of December. After demoralising every team throughout the year, St John Bosco’s gave the boys a scare with some very close matches, however Doutta Galla prevailed and the game was won in the end. It is unfortunate that the team will no longer be together next season for various reasons, as they cannot complete the “premiership hat-trick” of 3 grand final wins in a row, having won the past two flags after two massive seasons.|
