Back to back win for the Reserves

New Norfolk 11.9 (75) defeated Claremont 10.5 (65)
IN the 2014 SFL reserves grand final New Norfolk was the underdog but produced its best football on the day that counted, eventually running out narrow winners by 10 points in a high standard game.

The first half was fairly even but a couple of late goals in the second term saw the Eagles move to a 14-point lead at the main break in a low scoring affair. The third term was when New Norfolk won the game, kicking five goals to two as they reserves race to a 36 point lead and appeared to have the game in hand.

The last term saw Claremont come hard back at the Eagles but New Norfolk was never going to lose this game and the players were soon celebrating back-to-back reserve premierships.

Best players for the Eagles were Ross, Kelly, Taylor, Evans and Browning in an even team performance. Best for a disappointing Claremont were Jetson who kicked five goals in a fine display, Cowling and Woods.

New Norfolk          3.4,  5.5,  10.8,  11.9  (75)
