Kyby prevails in Tiger title clash

The Limestone Coast Women’s Football League capped off a successful season with the A and B grand finals on Sunday at Mundulla. Both games featured great football with Penola and Kybybolite taking the wins to be crowned champions of the two grades.

Penola v South Gambier

The Penola Eagles took down South Gambier and capped off a great season with a comfortable win in the ‘B’ grand final.

Penola got the ball rolling in the first quarter with four scoring shots, splitting the scores with two goals and two points.

South struggled to get going in the quarter, not scoring and finding themselves down by 14 points after one quarter of play.

The second quarter was not any better for the Dees as they went scoreless again and from here the game began to slip away.

Penola on the other hand continued to add to its lead, kicking another two goals and at halftime the Eagles could begin to see the finish line holding a 27 point lead.

In the third term Penola added another goal to their tally and continued to play great defence as they held the Demons scoreless for a third consecutive quarter, as the Eagles seemingly had the game in their hands with a 36 point lead.

In the final quarter South finally got on the scoreboard with a goal, but by now the damage had been done and the game was out of their reach as Penola scored another two goals to round out a great game.

League Best and Fairest winner Caroline McGrath capped off a great season by being named best on ground and also contributing two goals.

Penola defeated South Gambier 7.6 (48) to 1.2 (8).

North Gambier V Kybybolite

Kybybolite completed the tough task of being the fourth seed in the A Grade finals, taking down North Gambier in a close scoring all time classic game.

Both teams came to play in the first quarter, each kicking two goals.

However, Kyby edged a small lead, having one more shot at goal than North to be up by one at the break.

The goals kept coming in the second term as North kicked well, adding two more goals to their tally.

While North was playing well, Kyby stepped it up a notch and kicked three goals in the quarter to lead by 10 as the teams headed to their huddles.

North fired back in the third quarter kicking three goals and taking the lead.

However, Kyby was still hot on North’s tail, kicking a single goal in the quarter to keep the game close.

At three quarter time North headed into the break with a three point lead.

The final quarter of the season shaped up to be an arm wrestle as both teams came to play.

North converted a goal but Kyby answered with two of their own to give them a four point lead.

In the dying seconds of the game North had a shot to claim the victory with a kick after the siren.

However, it was not meant to be as North could not capture the glory and fell short by four.
