Glenorchy def. Burnie 7.8.50 - 2.2.14

What a game it was here at KGV with the girls beating Burnie who had previously knocked them out of the past two finals series.

BOG went to Zabreena Manjerovic who played her best game of the season and was the barometer across half back with her quick hands and pin point kicking.

2nd best went to Nietta Lynch who provided a target down forward all day and her effort around the contest could not be questioned.

Goals to: S. Eaton 2, J. Rattenbury 2, K. Rattenbury 2, H. Ryan.

The girls will now face arch rivals Clarence next weekend in what will be a thrilling and tight Preliminary Final with the winner to face Launceston in two weeks time at UTas Stadium.

aaronAfter securing the TSL Senior Premiership in 2016 the Club is looking forward to the 2017 season with great anticipation.

The Club's loss of premiership players has been widely publicised and is not the preferred end to a Premiership season, however this situation has also paved the way for the clubs young talent to step into senior roles.

Off the field we have added Nathan Foale as Senior Assistant and Jamie Ling as Development League Coach. The club is very proud of these appointments and welcome both former players back to the Black & White.
