Grace Lutheran College have bounced back from a slow performance at the Youth Girls Cup on Tuesday to win the Junior Division of the Brisbane School Girls Sporting Association the next day out at St John Fisher College.
Grace Lutheran went through undefeated in the Northern Division of the competition to meet South/West Division winner Loreto College. Loreto were the surprise package of the competition beating Youth Girls Cup winners Lourdes Hill and qualifying for the final of the BSGSA in just their first year in the competition.
AFL Qld staff have been working with Loreto through the Sport Education program over the last couple of years and it paid off, losing narrowly to a well drilled Grace Lutheran in the Grand Final 5.4.34 to 3.4.22.
In the Senior Division, Grace Lutheran Seniors have also qualified for the Grand Final to be played on 17th April against South/West Division winners Brigidine College. Grace were pushed the whole way in their replay Preliminary Final after drawing with Mt Alvernia (1) in last week’s game. With a late goal, Grace Lutheran snuck home 4.5.29 to 3.5.23 to break the deadlock between the two teams.
