Congratulations to our Mighty U12's for winning the AFLBJ's Division 3 2008 Premiership. In doing so, they have created history by becoming the first U12's team to win a Premiership for the Redcliffe Tigers.
Well done Guys, it really was a terrific year.....
Reflections pay dividends
Overcoming Challenges was the theme for our U12's grand final on Saturday.
Before our young Tigers ran out on the field, we reflected back through the year and looked at all the challenges faced.
We realised that right from our first grading game and beyond we have
overcome many tough situations as a team and the last game of the year was another hurdle to jump.
Our U12's came to play.
Kicking against the breeze in the first quarter we knew that getting a score
on the board and stopping the opposition from scoring was the key.
As was the case all year our centre line were ruthless and had to
push the ball forward at all costs.
The most pleasing aspect for the team was that the forwards finished
off the hard work generated up the ground.
All players starting from the backline stuck to their game plan,team rules
and stayed disciplined to the end.
Quarter by quarter the confidence just kept growing for our Tigers
and once again another challenge was put to rest.
All the things that wins games were displayed from our U12's with
tackling,smothering,hard at the ball contests and being first to the ball.
The most important part was believing in each other.
What a great year!
