All El­len­brook Eels teams are in fi­nals

The Advocate (Perth) - - SPORT -

EL­LEN­BROOK Eels trav­elled to Brent­wood Boor­a­goon to play their 300th game since es­tab­lish­ing in 2002.

The weather proved a chal­lenge, with a stiff breeze head­ing one di­rec­tion all day that made play­ers from both sides work hard for pos­ses­sions. Spurred on by sup­port­ers and life mem­bers, the league squad man­aged to come home stronger and win by five points. Now in third po­si­tion, the Eels head into their fi­nals cam­paign full of con­fi­dence. The Eels won 8.9 (57) to 8.4 (52) The re­serves man­aged a five-point win to fin­ish mi­nor pre­miers, giv­ing them the week off in another tilt at a flag.

The colts hosted Kwinana, hold­ing them to just nine points and win­ning by 60 points, fin­ish­ing in third place on the lad­der.

Third grade suf­fered a 32-point de­feat by Bal­la­jura that now leaves third grade in fourth po­si­tion on the lad­der.

“All teams into fi­nals is a true credit not only to the much im­proved play­ing group but all vol­un­teers, staff and sup­port­ers,” said life mem­ber An­drew Ward. “It’s a fan­tas­tic po­si­tion to be in.”
