The Sunday of the 2014 Finals Series dawned fair and bright. The Norths B grade women were prepped and ready to go for their 10am final against United. Throughout the season the two teams had tussled against one another with 2 wins and 2 losses. Norths had been beaten in the semi-final by United and had then had to force their way through past a determined Wombats team last week.
The first half was very even and it wasn’t until the last ten minutes of the half that Michelle Cary drove a strong attack through. Momentum swung Norths’ way and Fiona Beath scored putting the team 1 nil up going in to half time.
The second half was tight in the first 15 minutes until a cross from Ange MacDonald found Kath Donnelly lurking at left wing. Kath put the ball in the net and Norths were 2 nil up. As the game continued, Fiona Beath was in the action again, pushing through to earn a penalty stroke that she then converted. Norths defense held out several hard attacks from United until time ran out with Norths eventual 3 nil winners.
Best on Ground was Madeline Poulton. Congratulations also to Jo Peachey – Division 2 Women’s HAW Best and Fairest!
