Isis Devils Women make it to the 2016 grand fi­nal

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

WITH a grin from ear to ear, Isis Devils Women’s team man­ager Ray Dil­ger has barely come down from the high of the news the girls have made it to the grand fi­nal.

It has been tough for the team dur­ing the sea­son as the Devils strug­gled for a win.

The sheer de­ter­mi­na­tion and team work paved their way into the grand fi­nal this week­end in Bund­aberg.

Dil­ger said he couldn’t stop smil­ing and he was on cloud nine.

“I am so very proud of the girls, it hasn’t been an easy ride for them this sea­son but they have made it to the grand fi­nal,” he said.

“I know the team are striv­ing for a grand fi­nal win and some of the girls are a force on the ground, we have a good chance in the fi­nal.”

All sea­son the Past Broth­ers women’s team has been strong lead­ers on the field with 10 wins for the sea­son.

Isis Devils failed to win a game for the en­tire sea­son and man­aged to slide into the fi­nals in their fi­nal game for the sea­son.

Dil­ger said Neil had been a great cap­tain for the team and she should be very proud of lead­ing her team to the fi­nals.

“We have had many strong play­ers this sea­son, and the team have learnt from ev­ery game and worked on ball skills and their de­fence,” he said.

“Win or loose the girls have done us proud.”

The women’s league only has three teams in this year’s com­pe­ti­tion and next year hopes to in­tro­duce more teams to the league.

This Sun­day, Isis Devils take on Past Broth­ers at Sal­ter Oval from 1pm.

Dil­ger said the team and coach­ing staff would like to thank the com­mu­nity for all their sup­port shown to the women’s team this sea­son.
