Finals are here with three North Fremantle sides in the mix. The Drew Banfield Colts and B Reserves travelled to Kingsway Reserve which was literally sodden by the heavy rains. Our Colts wore the brunt of terrible conditions as they battled it out with Wembley. It was an arm wrestle all day and despite the conditions both sides pitched in and played some good hard football in a terrific encounter. Our lads fought gallantly and the game could have gone either way. However, Wembley made the most of their opportunities and eventually ran out winners 4.9 (33) to North 2.3 (15). While the loss was painful, the DBC Colts can stand proud for turning their year around with some outstanding performances in the latter half of the season, defeating top sides and making the finals. You are a credit to the Club boys! Many thanks to all players and Lance and his support staff.
The B Reserves faced Swan Athletic two weeks in a row and were overtly hungry for a win. From the outset, North stamped their aggression and desire for the ball. Despite the poor ground conditions, North played a skillful game controlling the play and creating many opportunities. Both teams gave their all, but the longer the game progresses the more obvious a Maggie win was on the cards. In a well drilled team effort, North powered on to break away and go on to win 9.7 (61) to 6.8 (44). Congratulations to the lads and to Prigas and his support staff. The Reserves just keep on rolling on!! Good luck for next week at Collegians against Whitfords.
The D1’s enjoyed a bye resulting from their good finish on the ladder. The team still got together for a training session Saturday morning for some honing of skills and team bonding. Their first final is at University next Saturday. It was great to see all the colts and seniors get back to the Club for awards and to celebrate and commiserate team fortunes. Next week brings another challenge for the B Reserves and D1’s. Bring home the bacon boys!!!
