Monto and Eidsvold facing off
THE upcoming Mundubbera Football Association grand final teams will be decided this week when Eidsvold and Monto play for the right to play Mundubbera, which has already secured its spot.
Eidsvold defeated Gayndah in a close contest to book a spot in next week’s grand final qualifier while the Gladiators’ season has come to an end.
Eidsvold will now play Monto, which lost to Mundubbera in the main semi-final.
Eidsvold captain Blake Popp said his team would be ready.
“They are both good sides and we know either one will be hard to beat,” Popp said.
“We know it will be a challenge but we will keep pushing forward and do our best to overcome them.”
Popp said his team had set out their goal and they would continue their hard work to achieve it.
“The grand final is definitely our aim at the moment and we will push hard to make it there,” Popp said.
Gayndah took an early lead against Eidsvold, who had to fight its way back into the contest before taking the lead and clinching the win 28-18.
“It was a good game that went back and forth for a while there,” Popp said.
“It was a really good comeback by the boys.
“I’m really proud of the team for pushing hard, holding their heads high and getting that win.”
Mundubbera was able to secure a home grand final with its 34-24 win over Monto in the final game of the day.
Mundubbera coach Hugh Tully said the weekend’s football would not have been possible without the generous help from the community.
“A big thank you to all the volunteers that made the day possible,” Tully said.
“And to our supporters for cheering us on. We couldn’t have done it without you.”
