What a day it was for the CHFA Grand Final, with the weather fading and all games played in dry conditions. High quality matches were presented from juniors to seniors throughout the day, with most of the results attributable to the final siren. The Under-12s started the day in a spectacular game that saw Forest / Stanley challenge Redpa in the final quarter but finish just 10 points. Demon Logan Pyke walked away with the award for best in the field. Redpa’s Under-16s followed in the Under-12s’ footsteps, taking first place but just two points against an Irishtown side who fought all day and never made it easy. Canary Eli Lambert took home the top floor honors. On the reserves, Scotchtown started strong and took an early lead before entering the main break with a 12-point advantage. But Redpa stepped up a notch in the second half, quickly closing the gap and registering a seven-point victory with Luke Magee taking the best on floor. With a solid lead, the anticipation in the air was high as the seniors rushed onto the pitch. Redpa took the lead early as Scotchtown took a while to calm nerves and could only score seven delays before the main break. After halftime, Scotchtown found his rhythm and started scoring goals, while Redpa was left scoreless for the third term and suddenly fell 11 points behind. With just 20 minutes to determine the winner, the final term turned out to be tough work, with both teams missing out on easy shots on goal. But it was Scotchtown who won to claim an 18-point victory and his first prime minister since 2004, with Tiger Mark Kearnes taking home the award for best on floor. The CHFA Executive would like to thank everyone who attended Saturday’s Grand Final and obeyed the directions given. Thank you also to the Smithton Rotary Club for giving you time to patrol the doors of our final series. See you next season.
