Definitely Grinners!

Definitely Grinners!

Byron Bay FC’s dream season continues, winning the Football Far North Coast Club Championship and taking six teams through the the Grand Finals. With three wins from the four Grand Finals played so far, the club is definitely on a roll.

Our Grade 12 Cougars got the silverware ball rolling with a 3-0 win over Ballina in their Grand Final. After finishing in fourth spot on the pointscore table, the 13s Panthers battle their way to the Grand final but lucked out against Pottsville. The Grade 16 1st Division boys took out the Pointscore Championship, and completed the double with a thrilling 3-2 win over Lismore Thistles in last Saturday’s Grand Final. Our wonderful women’s Wildcats all made the finals series and our fourth Division team not only made the Grand Final, they won! The girls finished their season with an emphatic 3-0 victory over Suffolk Park.

Win, Win in Pre-Season Opener

Win, Win in Pre-Season Opener

Byron Bay’s Under 16’s and Premier squads both scored gratifying wins against their 2014 nemeses in Sunday’s opening round of the Anzac Cup.

The 16s met the young guns from Summer Youth League winners, Lennox Head, in a fast-moving and entertaining clash at the windy Ewingsdale grounds.

Battling a strong headwind, the Byron boys looked to have the better of it in the first half, but strong counter attacks earned their southern neighbours an early goal before half time.

14s grand finals

14-1sts

Our two grade 14 teams travelled to Oakes oval pumped up and ready to play football! The 14/2nds took the field and were firing from the start. Cameron, Tane and Yarbirri put plenty of pressure on the Mullumbimby defence and created several great chances. Although dominating the early part of the game Mullumbimby scored against the run of play. Within moments though Byron had equalised and were fired up to add to the score. The Mullumbimby defence was proving harder to break through as the game wore on and the midday heat was taking its toll on the players. Mullumbimby eventually scored again and then added to the tally in the second half to finish the game 5-1. The kids were disappointed but should be proud of their achievement in reaching the grand final in a very tight and even competition. 14-2nds [mainpic]TOP PIC 14/1st Division / THIS PIC 14/2nd Division[/mainpic]

With the heat easing a little the 14/1sts took to the field determined to bring a trophy back to the bay. The boys came with plenty of grand final experience, having made it to Oakes 3 times in their 5 years together. Although player injury and sickness were a worry, an aggressive start saw the Bay 2-0 up after 15 minutes. Alstonville fought back though and with 2 quick goals from corners had levelled the score by half time. The second half saw the injuries taking their toll and with Ronan limping through the midfield and Harry doing the same in the backs scoring again was going to be difficult. A third goal from Alstonville ten minutes from time decided the game and the young rams went down 3-2. A great effort from a depleted side and the boys should be proud of their efforts throughout the season.

Lion Hearts

lion-hearts

It was a wonderful first year of football for lots of enthusiastic littlies in 2013. Especially for our all conquering young Lions. These little guys had loads of fun at training and games – almost as much as the coach and parents! It is inspiring to watch their strength, coordination and confidence grow through the season and to see their new friendships blossom.

Can't wait for 2014!
