The GSFL’s Annual Indigenous Round coincided with the end of the GSFLW’s 14 round home and away season.
This Sunday the GSFLW Finals Series gets underway at Encounter Bay. Can the Dee’s make it another clean sweep in both the U17 Girls and Women’s A-Grade?
Time will tell and If tomorrow’s A-Grade Qualifying Final between the current Premiers and last year’s runners-up can repeat last week’s close encounter – McLaren led all day only to be run over by the Willunga in the last by 2 points – we’re in for a thrilling afternoon.
The winner goes straight through to the Grand Final while the loser gets a second chance in Week 2’s Preliminary Final at Willunga Oval.
Good luck to all teams competing tomorrow – a special mention to the newly merged Yankalilla-Encounter Bay ‘Stingrays’ who have qualified in both grades in their inaugural season.
The league hosted the GSFLW Best and Fairest Awards night at the newly renovated Encounter Bay Football Club on Tuesday night.
Young Roo Tya Parisi dominated the U17s’ count winning by 6 votes from Willunga’s Emily Steele. The A-Grade was a much tighter race with one point separating the top three. The Stingrays’ Jemma Ellis and McLaren’s Layla Rogers both tied for the award on 19 votes, one ahead of Magpie Renee Moon. Renee would go on to win the GSFLW A-Grade Fleurieu Sun MVP Award as voted by the Coaches. Congratulations to all the award recipients on a entertaining count.
