Grand Final Winners:
Girls JT4: This was a young, new team, brought together from the previous year’s turf team, and some new players to turf in their first year of J’s. JT4 started the season with coach Tanya Hoyle, and due to work arrangements, Tanya had to retract her coaching role, and in came Emily Hegney and Alison Dewar. All 3 coaches had a positive effect on these players, Tanya starting with a very mismatched team, bringing them together to start their turf journey together, and Emily & Alison continuing that and progressing their skills to see them play the first-round semi against the minor premiers SBE, and winning 3-1 to move straight to the Grand Final game.
The girls played a great game at the Grand Final, back up against SBE, however this time couldn’t put one away, however also kept SBE from putting in a goal, and the result was a joint premiership with a 0-0 draw. Congratulations girls!
Boys J3: This team of young lads saw a team made up of 6 boys from last year, and a new intake of U13’s that aged up and 2 newcomers. These team changes made a great group of boys and with the support of each other developed them into a fantastic team showing great spirit and determination to do their best. These boys had a great season, finishing as Minor Premiers. The boys had a great win over Norths in the first round Semis, moving straight to the Grand Final against Redcliffe, coming away back to back Premiers with a 4-0 win.
Girls JT1: 2018 saw a big change for our JT1 team. 5 KW players from last year’s team and 9 new recruits (4 from Brisbane clubs, 3 from other regions and 2 returning KW wolf-cubs) and a new coach. Already our head senior coach, this year Nikki Taylor also took on the top junior team and then the fun started!
These girls came together quickly, and right from the grading games showed Brisbane they would be a force to reckon with. This was no better illustrated than with a win against the powerhouse Commercial club in round two.
For the remaining season, JT1’s continued this trend conceding only 1 loss and 1 draw. The achieved a string of convincing wins and a Fore & Against that allowed the team to take the minor premiership. As we moved into the finals, our games were considerably difficult with a loss against Commercial and a draw against Easts, forcing the team to make the grand final game the long way. The grand final against Commercial saw one of the tightest matches for the whole season. With the score 1-1 at 59 mins we all thought we were going to shootouts. However, with a short corner at 40 secs to go Kedron score for a 2-1 win!
