TIGERS INTO GRAND FINAL
Mirboo North advanced into their second successive Grand Final against Newborough when they defeated Boolarra in the Preliminary Final. Mirboo North were all over Boolarra from the start and could have buried the Demons in the first term but inaccuracy cost them valuable points. By half time the game was a virtual GAME OVER. Boolarra known for their fightbacks in the past couldn't produce the goods and went down to a more systematic Tiger Team. The Three Nash boys played (Liam, Kallum and Jake) and all were valuable in the 18-13 to 6-7 win. Tim was on Traill with five goals and Luke Palmer scored three. For Boolarra is was a disappointing end to what had become a great final series. Their best were Daniel Metcalf, Mark Buglisi, Jesse Giardina and Jake Battersby.
