Mountain Creek SHS scooped the pool at Yeronga yesterday, winning both the junior and senior divisions of the Brisbane Lions Cup – Girls.
Faith Lutheran lined up for their first final in the junior division and put up a great defensive effort against the Creekers who ran out winners 6.4.40 to 1.1.7.
Tayla Gesch from Mountain Creek and Chloe McGahey from Faith Lutheran were both awarded joint Best on Ground Awards.
In the Senior division, Mountain Creek were looking to redeem themselves in their clash against Centenary after a narrow loss in last year’s final to the Toowoomba based St Ursula’s.
Despite having players out Centenary led at the halftime mark 3.2.20 to 2.6.18. Some fantastic skills kept the scoreboard ticking over with the Creekers having a great third term to have them ahead by 16-points at three quarter time.
With Centenary kicking into a strong breeze for the final quarter they couldn’t make up the difference and ended up going down to Mountain Creek 8.10.58 to 6.3.39.
U18 All-Australian player Jordan Zanchetta from Centenary was judged joint best on ground with Chelsea Scarff from Mountain Creek SHS.
Ex- Brisbane Bears utility and current AFL Queensland State Development Manager Troy Clarke presented the best-on-ground awards, medals and trophy to the Junior Division winners.
