Preliminary Final Results
Under 11A Mitcham 2-6 (18) defeated East Ringwood 1-7 (7)
First year in competitive football and our Under 11A team coached by Wazza, Matt and Andrew are playing off this week against an undefeated Vermont in the Grand Final. To say the Preliminary Final was close would be an understatement. East Ringwood came out to win and took it to the Tigers for 3 and a half quarters, the score was less than a goal. East Ringwood came out hard in the last quarter and hit the front in the first minute putting the Tigers who had only kicked points all game on the back foot. James was quick to reply with our first goal, putting us back in front, and East Ringwood tried their hardest to hit back. Mitcham back-line was incredible to stop their run, and tackles from Heater, Billy, Archer, Tristan, Gus and Ryan stopped East Ringwood from coming out winners. The sealer was Billy's goal in the last minute to put us into this years Grand-final. Commiserations to our mates in the under 12s who played the best to win last week and Good luck you the Under 13 boys in this weeks GF against Vermont. Good luck to our under 14 girls this week in their final.
Best: Heath, Ryan, Billy, James, Tristan
Goals: James, Billy
This week we are playing at 9AM at Moreton Park against Vermont. Both games this year have been close. Would love to see as many Mitcham JFC members at the game as possible to watch what will be a great game of football.

The boys played the best 'selfless team-first' football that I have seen for a long time. Our boys are looking forward to the challenge that lies ahead, they can't wait to play next Sunday. Thanks again for all the support, our team appreciates it. Go Tiges!
