Zillmere’s Mimi Hoger has gone back-to-back in the QWAFA Best and Fairest, this time sharing the award with Jindalee Sherie Sayle.
Hoger and Sayle both polled 21 votes across the home and away season in 2015, edging out Alexandra Hamlyn (Bond University) and Amber Rabl (Moreton Bay), who were equal runners up with 15 votes each.
With the QWAFA competition now in its second year, Hoger is yet to be beaten for the top award. It’s an incredible effort to back up from last year.
There are not too many more consistent players than Hoger, who has been sensational in the Eagles midfield this year. Out of 14 games, she has been named in the best 10 times.
She racks up possessions all afternoon, using her pace and skill to break lines and find targets up forward.
Sayle, who joined the newly formed Jindalee Jags this season after moving from the Western Magpies, was not only one of the standout ball users in the competition, but also one of the most prominent goal kickers.
She finished with 30 goals from here 16 games, finishing second in the league goal kicking, while also being named in the best 12 times across the season.
Sayle’s versatility this year has been one of her biggest strengths. She is able to play all over the ground.
Jindalee’s season finished up last weekend with a loss at the hands of Bond, but Hoger and her Eagles’ teammates will be focused on a Preliminary Final against Bond University this Saturday Tidbold Park.
The game gets underway at 9:00am.
