The fairytale didn't have the happy ending for Jimmy Rozynski as his Mitiamo Super Roos were defeated in the Loddon Valley League Grand Final by red hot favourites Bridgewater, who have now won 6 flags in a row.
Mitiamo never got into the match and trailled by 10 goals at three quarter time before booting 6 goals in the last quarter, going down 17-14-116 to 8-12-60. JRoz was again amongst the best as were fellow fifo QLD players Michael I'Anson and James Drake.
It was better luck for the Mick Ford coached Tyrendarra in the South Western District league as they won the Preliminary Final to book a Grand Final berth against favourites Heywood on Saturday.
Tyrendarra trailled by 4 goals at half time and 2 goals at three quarter time before winning a nail biter against Coleraine , who had easily defeated Ford's team in the Qualifying Final a fortnight earlier. Tyrendarra won 9-9-63 to 9-7-61.
No doubt a couple of famous Mick Ford sprays inspired his team to a mighty comeback.
