THE season has now come to an end for the New Norfolk Under 16s after they were defeated by a more determined Sorell outfit in the Southern Tasmanian Junior Football League preliminary final at Pontville on Sunday.
The Eagles were slow starters, letting Sorell get out to an early lead which they kept for the remainder of the game. Dakoda Smith played a fantastic game with his strong play all over the ground as did Torn Oates and Josh Farrow. Daniel Browning continued on with his good form in the ruck and is looking the goods to become a senior ruckman in the not to distant future.
Connor Salter marked well all day while Alex Blair again did his bit up forward kicking three great goals, while Shane Upton, Dakoda Smith and Wade Lockley kicked one each. The Under 16s should hold their heads very high as they all have done themselves and their supporters very proud and we hope to see you all playing again next season. Well done to all.
Sorell 9.15 (69) d New Norfolk 6.6 (42) at Pontville.
Goals - New Norfolk: A. Blair 3, S. Upton, D. Smith, W. Lockley.
Best - New Norfolk: D. Smith, T. Oates, J. Farrow, D. Browning, C. Salter, A. Blair.
