Teams: Mitcham 10.13.73 d Croydon 2.0.12
Summary: Preliminary Final day! It was an all or nothing approach required. In our prematch meeting we reminded these young men that they have done all the hard work and on Sunday they put everything into place and played a terrific game of football. We are very proud of the boys and the effort they put into the game was amazing. Well done boys, enjoy the week and be ready for what should be a terrific game next week. Thanks to all the Mitcham supporters, it will be fantastic to see you all again next week!

Teams: Mitcham 0.3.3 v The Basin 3.4.22
Summary: One playing two at Rowville, with the winner going straight into the big dance. We were feeling confident about the game, but unfortunately from the start things went pear shaped - forwards not hitting the ball, backs not staying on their opponents! Our on ballers were being tagged and we had to move girls all over the place - 17 of the girls had under 4 possessions and for the first time this year - no goal kickers! Seeing the disappointment and the tears after the game was hard to deal with, but as a coach, I know these girls have tasted the highs and lows of football. Yes it hurts, but knowing these wonderful young ladies we know they will bounce back! This week we have our neighbours down the road and it will be a hard game. Ladies, this week, let’s stick to the team rules, help your mates, respect the opposition and wear the Mitcham jumper with pride.
Everyone needs to understand that we have a game plan and style that has worked all year. We all need to row the boat together in the same direction – then our Lady Tigers will enjoy the day!
