The Intermediate comp came to a end last Tuesday with a fantastic close grand final being played between Rovers and Swans.

A lot of players showed early nerves, a number of players were playing in their first grand final and in front of a large crowd.

Rovers earned a number of short corners only to be stopped by Swans’ in form goalie Alyssa Harrold.

Rovers attacked through great team play, scoring the first goal of the game.

Swans didn’t give up and scored to even the game up and sending it into extra time.

Rovers were awarded a short corner right on the siren for the end of the first five minutes and on the third attempt at the short corner they scored to come away with the 2018 premiership.

Congratulations to both teams on a fantastic well fought out final.

Many thanks to umpires Steve Michalak and Melissa Pullan and to the association supplied tech bench officials.

At the presentations Alyssa Davidson from Rovers was awarded fairest and best in the grand final.
