2010 Grand Final Results and Details

Seniors

The Demons controlled the Senior Grand Final from start to finish as they easily accounted for a disappointing Boort. After their previous good form the Magpies were rated a good chance to collect the main trophy on offer but could not match it with the Demons who had winners all over the ground. From the opening bounce Wycheproof-Narraport hit the ground running and it did not take long for them to register their first goal of the match after missing a couple of earlier attempts. Sam Hawkins was in everything for the Demons and his marking and field play was giving his team the drive that would eventually give them the upper hand over the Magpies. The Demons were getting a handy break on the Boort team midway through the first quarter before Boort upped the tempo and bought the margin back to fourteen points at the first break. With Wycheproof-Narraport in control at the centre bounces and reaping the rewards of some smart play by Dillon and Hawkin, who had each kicked three first quarter goals, life for the Magpies was not getting easier. Lourey kicked two goals in quick succession to extend their lead as the body language of the Magpies was shooting out distress signals, as they didn't appear to have any answers to shut down the Demons prime movers. Boort's only bit of joy for the term came from the boot of Nathan Gooding when he was able to slot through a nice goal from the fifty meter line. At the main break Wycheproof-Narraport had built their lead out to twenty five points, and the Magpie brains trust had some work to do if they were going to get back into the match, After the long break the Demons again attacked at every opportunity with Shadbolt kicking an early goal to set the scene, Bismire extended their lead when he kicked a couple of quick goals and the Magpies faithful could see the Premiership slipping away. Perryman recorded a late goal but the horse had bolted. The Demons players were full of running and a lead of thirty nine points at the last change was a real confidence booster heading into the last term. Boort's coach Aaron Walklate called on his players to give it everything in the last quarter as the match was still winnable even though the odds looked stacked against them. The Magpies, to this point, had only been able to kick five goals and trailing by thirty nine points there was a huge effort required. When Bismire kicked another the Demons supporters kicked into party mode, Ben Walklate responded with a goal to Boort but this was quickly answered by Bismire who kicked his fourth and from this point both sides were just waiting for the final siren to sound. As the time clicked around to 5.30pm the curtain came down on our season, with Wycheproof-Narraport collecting Premiership number seventeen since the two Clubs amalgamated. In what was a real team effort, those to stand out for the Demons were Sam Hawkins (VCFL Medal), Matt Dillon (Des Darcy Medal), Zac and Josh White, Declan Lourey and Wayne Mitrovic. For Boort Ben Walklate, David Johnston, Cam Chalmers, Wayne Maxted, Nathan Gooding and Aaron Walklate
