NANGILOC have claimed back-to-back premierships in the Millewa Football League after defeating Werrimull by 15 points last week.
After breaking their 22-year premiership drought in 2017, this year the Demons were the team to catch in the 2018 season.
The Demons led for most of the day, winning 11.6 (72) to 8.9 (57).
Captain David Keens called his career a day following the victory, heading out on the highest possible note. Keens kicked five goals and won the best-on-ground medal as well.
On ballers Scott Golding and Luke Weaver were impressive while Josh Berry was strong in defence.
For the Pies, 2017 McDonald Medal winner Mark Thomson put in a great display, as did Matt Kelly.
Werrimull have made it three from three after defeating Cardross in the Sunraysia Women’s Football League grand final.
The Magpies took down Bambill in the first two premiership play-offs in 2016 and 2017. This year Cardross finished on top of the ladder and threatened to be the team to de-throne Werrimull, however the Pies proved too good on grand final day, winning 5.3 (33) to 3.5 (23).
Coming back from VFLW duties with Casey, Lorianne Lowerson was named best-on-ground.
In the Millewa Netball Association (MNA), Werrimull atoned for their 2017 A Grade grand final loss by defeating Gol Gol 48 to 33.
Led by Goal Defender and best-on-court Gretta Hankinson, the Magpies capped off their outstanding season in fine style. The team only lost one game for the season.
In A Reserve, Gol Gol took the win over Werrimull 38 to 26. Best-on-court was Golly’s Goal Attack Aislin Campbell.
Gol Gol also won B Grade in a tight affair against Meringur, who were featuring in their first ever B Grade grand final. Meringur’s Goal Keeper Shannon Britton-Smith was named best on court, however it was the Hawks that won 25 to 22.
In C Grade, Goal Shooter Rebecca Lynch led Bambill to a 45 to 36 victory over Nangiloc.
In Juniors, Bambill defeated Cardross 41 to 40 with GS Jordyn Casey named best-on-court.
