Good start to U/16s finals campaign

NEW Norfolk Under 16s took their first step in their quest for a premiership by defeating Southern Storm at KGV in the Southern Tasmanian Junior Football League elimination final at the weekend. The game was played in blustery conditions which resulted in a scrappy and sometimes low standard game.

Generally the game was a battle between the half-back lines with the ball often falling short of target. To both teams' credit they never stopped trying and should be proud of their efforts. The Eagles now move into a semi final against Clarence who proved too strong for North Hobart in the other elimination final.

New Norfolk 9.5 (59) d Southern Storm 5.2 (32) at KGV
