The 3rd week of the Finals series saw 5 Penshurst RSL teams attempting to qualify for their respective Grand Finals. Whilst 2 teams have made it to the big one, unfortunately, 3 of our teams fell just one game short. On Friday night, our under 16s were the first Penshurst RSL team into a Grand Final. Our boys were never headed, running out 20-8 victors over local rival Renown United. We had less luck on Saturday.
Though still in with a chance when trailing 11-14 midway through the 2nd half, our under 9 Golds were not able to come home strongly enough, falling to Arncliffe Scots 11-32. Next up, our under 10 Greens won through to defend their title, earnt with a hard fought 24-17 win over Kingsgrove Colts Blue (after trailing 0-12 early).
Unfortunately, both our under 11s and under 13s were beaten favourites. Both teams finished successful a season with an uncharacteristically flat performance - the u11s lost 12-34 to Hurstville United and the u13s 20-30 to Arncliffe Scots.
Our under 19s are still in the running for a Grand Final berth when they play in their Major Semi next Sunday.
