2018 Mortgage Choice Hills Football League Division 1 Elimination Final – Echunga v Blackwood, live from Able Storage Oval, Mount Barker, Sunday 2 September @ 2pm.
Another close, hard fought game between two quality sides. Reigning premiers Blackwood have been consistent performers all year. Echunga’s journey to the Finals hasn’t been quite as smooth as Blackwood’s due to a bout of early season injuries, but they regained strength at the pointy end of the season.
This match was pretty even all the way through, with a clear result only becoming apparent as the fourth quarter unfolded. Overall, both sides can hold their heads up high for digging deep when it mattered. Congrats to Blackwood, who move into the 1st Semi Final. Commiserations to Echunga, who’ll no doubt build on their strong finish to 2018 to carry them into 2019.
Thanks to Fi Zevenboom for the pic. We still don’t know how she does it, but Fi’s shots are always top notch … and speaking of top notch visuals, you can watch this match, as well as listen. Could this be a hint of things to come next year?
