IT was a wonderful weekend of football for Woolgoolga United, winning five from five grand finals they were contesting.

A bumper crowd provided a carnival atmosphere at the Coffs Coast Synthetics with supporters waving flags and painting their faces blue.

Woolgoolga Under 14s coach Lisa Webb was jumping for joy celebrating their grand final victory.

“Woolgoolga went into the weekend with five teams playing in grand finals and all teams knew it would be a hard task to come away with all five wins,” said Lisa.

“The 12 girls finished second in the regular season and knew playing Boambee would be a hard game, which it was.

“The girls from both teams played well but it was our girls who came out the winners on the day.”

After chalking up their first win, coach Webb continued the momentum with the under 14s.

“Our 14 girls also finished second in the regular season and were looking forward to their grand final against Northern Storm,” she said.

“Another game that both teams had their chances but thankfully it was the Woopi girls who came away with another premiership for the Woolgoolga club.

“The 14 boys hadn’t beaten their opponents Coffs United all season so they knew it was a matter of who wanted to win the most on the day.

“Our boys have the never give up attitude which was what they needed to get the win in a very close game.”

Woolgoolga also took out grand final wins in the men’s second division and women’s second divisions.
