A team full of girls from years nine to 11 had plenty to celebrate earlier this month after taking home the premiership in the Metro South 2019 Fremantle Conference.
The Mundijong Junior Football Club girls team finished the season strong as minor premiers, having won all their home and away games in the 2019 season against competitors Jandakot Jets, Willetton, Roleystone, Booragoon and Kwinana junior football clubs.
Coach Jason McGauley said the player’s skill set improved from strength to strength each week and each player performed well in their role.
“The grand final was played at East Fremantle Oval and was always going to be a tough game,” he said.
“It was our first grand final together as a group and out of the 15 girls, it was the first time 12 of them had played in a grand final.”
McGauley described the game as quite physical and tough but played in good spirit.
“Mundijong settled early with two goals in the first quarter, keeping Roleystone scoreless,” he said.
“The second quarter was a lot tighter with Roleystone kicking two goals and Mundijong answering back with two goals against the wind.
“The second half was a different story with Mundijong kicking away for victory.”
The final score was Mundijong 9.10 (64) to Roleystone 3.0 (18).
Best on ground was awarded to Mundijong’s Taylah Cruttenden, who was also awarded the association’s Fairest and Best.
