QAFL & QWAFL grand final details

Queensland’s best community footballers will take centre stage in the QAFL and QWAFL grand final day at Leyshon Park, Yeronga, today Saturday September 20.

The undefeated Morningside Panthers will take on the Labrador Tigers in the QAFL decider, kicking off at 1:30pm.

The Panthers have had a week off after winning their major semi-final a fortnight ago, continuing their perfect run of wins for 2014.

Labrador clinched a thrilling preliminary final win over Palm Beach to qualify for the grand final, with a Todd Featherstone goal in the final seconds handing them the win.

The grand final is a massive turnaround for the Tigers, who finished with just one win for the season in 2013.

In the QWAFL, the Coorparoo Navy Roos will be looking for back-to-back premiership wins.

Coorparoo won straight through to their grand final, defeating Zillmere a fortnight ago, and will line up against the Eagles again in Saturday’s decider.

Zillmere finished second on the ladder this season, dropping just two games for the season, to Coorparoo and Yeronga.

The day starts with the QAFL reserves grand final, between Morningside and Labrador.

The Tigers pulled off a huge upset over the minor premier Panthers a fortnight ago, forcing Morningside to reach the grand final the hard way.

AFL Queensland CEO, Michael Conlan, said the grand final day, which will see South-East Queensland’s top men and women sharing the spotlight, would be a landmark occasion in Queensland football.

“With three high quality matches, the grand final day will be a showcase of some of the best community footballers in Queensland,” Conlan said.

“We are very proud to lead the way by putting both the QWAFL and QAFL on the big stage as part of a grand final triple header, truly embracing both our male and female footballers as they play for a flag.”

There’ll be lots of fun off the field, with the inflatable playground in action from 10am-3pm, giving kids the chance to kick the footy and have a go at taking a specky.

The Mountain Creek State High School band will be playing during the day, providing a brilliant atmosphere for the pinnacle of Queensland community football.

At half-time in the QAFL grand final, the speedsters from the QAFL and QWAFL will compete in time sprints, to find out who is setting the pace in their respective competitions.

Giant Sherrins will attract the spotlight as well, in a Club Challenge race, with teams of six facing off to take the footies up and down the field.

Community radio station Bay FM will broadcast live from the venue from 8:00am to 12:00pm and ABC 612 will broadcast the match from 1:30pm.
