Newman Knights Boys into the Grand Final

Newman Knights Boys into the Grand Final

Congratulations to the Newman Knights J11/12 Boys teams who are both playing in the grand final this weekend.

The J11/12 A Reserve team finished 3rd on the ladder but won a thrilling semi final last Friday with Jason Goodson scoring a “golden goal” from a free hit by Sam Collier, 1 min 52 into extra time. Both Jason and Sam are current Year 10 students at Newman College.
The J11/12 B team also had a very strong season, finishing 2nd on the ladder, a great achievement for a team that includes players from Year 8 to 12. They will play off against the Minor Premiers on Sunday.
Both teams include boys who are members of the College's 1st XI and are coached by current members of the Club’s top Promotion 1 Team, Joe and Eamonn Fitzgerald, assisted by Hugh Forbes and Ollie Notley all former Newman College students.
The games are:
  • Friday 11th Sept: J11/12 A Reserve vs Lions, 6.00pm at Hale Turf
  • Sunday 13th Sept: J11/12 B vs Dale, 11.30am at Fletcher Park
The Girls J11/12 A Promotion team were unlucky to miss out by one goal on a finals berth finishing the season on equal points and goal difference as the 4th placed team. Many of the girls have played together since Minkey and have already begun the transition into Senior hockey playing regularly for the Women’s teams this year.
