They won! Golden Goal!!

Gees we parents are dedicated!

On the wettest Saturday in Launceston the Westside Daredevils had to play the final of the McDonald Cup.

The Daredevils had won every match bar 1 and the team they lost to was the team they played in the final RO Sharks.

Contention was still in play about the league ladder because although the Daredevils only lost one game (as did RO Sharks to the Daredevils)they scored 16 more goals for the season. Because RO Sharks played one extra game than EVERY team in Under 10's Div 1 they "technically" won. It was an act "of God" according to the powers that be.


Anyhow our boys were determined to win! And of course as parents we were encouraging them from the side line!

Madison and I both were very vocal and we all wondered whether she would have a voice on Sunday - but she did.

Our boys were the better side (of course) throughout the match and scored 2 early goals before being pegged back to finish 2 all.

So it was 5 mins each side - Golden Goal (only I didn't really understand that) and we played 5 minutes - changed sides and then after some more intense play a goal was scored!! I thought they had to keep playing but no - it was all over - they were the champions!!!

So even though through an "act of god" they were denied the league winners they certainly proved that they deserved to win all round!!
