AFL London Finals Footy- RESULTS

In another great weekend of finals held at Motspur Park, we saw some of the best footy in recent years and with some mouthwatering match ups on paper, the day did not disappoint.

SOCIAL DIVISION: The social Division Grand Final saw the Wandsworth Demons take out their first win of the day.   The Demons were too slick for the Ealing Emu’s, 7.4.46 to 1.9.15.  Best on ground was Mark Brescacin of the Demons.

finalsCONFERENCE DIVISION: Once again, the Shepherds Bush Raiders took out the AFL London Conference Grand Final.  Made closer by some inaccurate kicking, it was still a very physical game and the final margin was a 33 point win for the favourites, 8.20.68 to 5.5.35.   Best on Ground was Jimmy Gottschalk of the Raiders.

WOMEN’S DIVISION: Wandsworth Demons took the first ever AFL London Women’s Grand Final, with a hard fought win over the Wimbledon Hawks.  The final margin was 25 points (5.5.35 to 1.2.8).  Tess Baxter for the Demons was awarded Best on Ground.

PREMIERSHIP DIVISION: In one of the best Grand Finals we’ve seen in London, the North London Lions held off the fast finishing West London Wildcats by 1 point (8.9.57 to 8.8.56)!  The Wildcats hit the front with only 3 minutes to go, and it took a late goal and then a huge pack mark to see the Lions home in a thrilling finish.  Best on Ground was awarded to Lions playing coach Ben Quick.
