In a worrying omen for the day the Zooper Doopers sold out well before any of the Medowie-based teams got to run out on the pitch.

Always a bad sign of the temperature in the middle to greet the groms.

In the Youth Girl U11’s Port Power were truly up against it as the Warners Bay Bulldogs showed just how well drilled they were, easily winning 107 to 0.

The Bulldogs have had a few more years training and playing together and the scoreboard reflected that fact.

The girls have worked hard this season and are looking forward to being more competitive in 2021 with a bit more experience gained.

There was also little joy for the U11 boys who came up against some bigger opponents in the Newcastle City Sky Blues squad.

The Sky Blues used their bigger bodies to outstretch the Power overhead and came away 65 to 8 victors.

The Power U11’s fought hard but the Sky Blues outgunned them with booming long range kicks all morning.

There was some joy for the Port Stephens teams however as the Nelson Bay Marlins saw the U13 boys and the U15 girls through to the last dance.

The U13 boys took on the Lake Macquarie Dockers and were able to hang on by 10 points winning 37 to 27 while the minor premiers in the Marlins U15 girls came up 24 to 9 victors over Newcastle City White.

Both teams will line up next Sunday 18 October at Ferodale Oval, Medowie, in what is sure to be a blockbuster day of Grand Final footy.
