Ashburton’s men and women’s seniors teams finished their seasons over the weekend, with each team featuring in the promotion play-offs.
In some great news to finish the year, Ashy’s State 3 women’s team has won promotion – without even kicking a ball! Incredibly, the Brandon Park opposition forfeited, gifting ‘Smashburton’ promotion into State 2. Congratulations to our ladies and super coach Adam Steele on a wonderful season.
Unfortunately our men’s first team lost its promotion play-off in the cruelest of fashion, going down on penalties after extra time. Up against Dingley who were playing to maintain their place in the league above Ashburton, nothing could separate the teams after 120 minutes of grueling football, with the score locked at 2-2. Despite the defeat, our boys can hold their heads high having secured the League Runners-Up position and having gone undefeated in their last eight games. Congratulations to Senior Coach Costi and all the players.
