Agony and ec­stasy at sea­son’s end

Euroa Gazette - - SPORTS -

THE Goul­burn Val­ley and Kyabram Dis­trict foot­ball and net­ball sea­sons con­cluded on the week­end, with grand fi­nal­ists com­ing away on ei­ther the high of win­ning a pre­mier­ship flag, or the low of fall­ing just short.

In to­tal there were six grand fi­nals in which one or more lo­cal teams was in­volved, four of those com­ing away vic­tors.

On Satur­day the KDFL sides did bat­tle in Mooroopna.

In the se­nior foot­ball it was Nagam­bie who were too strong for Vi­o­let Town, run­ning away with it in a dom­i­nant sec­ond half to win 142 points to 89 points and claim back-to-back pre­mier­ships.

The Lak­ers also tasted vic­tory in the A grade net­ball as well, beat­ing Tal­ly­ga­roopna in a nail-biter 45-43.

In the B grade net­ball it was the Avenel Swans who took home the pen­nant, also de­feat­ing Tal­ly­ga­roopna 42-38.

Tal­ly­ga­roopna would have some suc­cess, with their C grade side beat­ing Nagam­bie 43-32.

The Vi­o­let Town un­der 17s com­pleted a rare per­fect sea­son, eas­ily ac­count­ing for cross-shire ri­vals Nagam­bie 50-24 in the de­cider.

Few teams have been as dom­i­nant as the young Town­ers were in 2017, and they fin­ished their sea­son ap­pro­pri­ately as pre­miers.

On Sun­day Euroa Foot­ball Club’s re­serves took to Deakin on a windy and warm day.

In a low scor­ing thriller, the Mag­pies went down by a soli­tary point against the Kyabram Bombers.

A cruel and dev­as­tat­ing end to what had been a dom­i­nant sea­son for the black and white.

Well done to all those who played in grand fi­nals on the week­end.

Mak­ing it to the last game of the year is a great achieve­ment in it­self.

To the win­ners, con­grat­u­la­tions; a pre­mier­ship can be an elu­sive thing to win.
