AFL Mackay 2017 Finals Series Begins

The AFL Mackay Finals get underway this weekend in a huge weekend of football across the region.

 

Harrup Park hosts the 2nd Semi-Finals Saturday with action continuing Sunday at the 1st Semi-Finals at Zeolla Park.

 

Division 1 Minor Premiers Mackay City Hawks Coach Owen Battersby said it was good to be able to come out on top of the regular season.

 

"The weekend didn’t go as planned but we got the job done,” Battersby said.

 

“There’s always things to work on. 

 

"We didn’t start too well on the weekend so we really want to push forward early on in the game.”

 

The Hawks will come up against close runners up Whitsunday Sea Eagles on Saturday.

 

Battersby said he’ll tell his team to go into Finals as a whole unit.

 

"Finals football is different kettle of fish and it’s more about the team, not individuals."

 

North Mackay Saints Premier Women’s Captain Rahnee Vaccaneo said her team is excited to have finished as Minor Premiers.

 

"It’s definitely a boost for the girls going into finals and really gives us confidence,” Vaccaneo said.

 

“We’ll look to work in numbers and look for that back option.

 

“If we can be more accurate with our goals, and get the goals instead of points, that’ll do it for us."

 

In the other senior matches Division 1 third placed North Mackay Saints will battle Eastern Swans and Bakers Creek Premier Women’s side will take on the Mackay City Hawks.
