Two three minute halves of extra time followed, the teams still being locked together at 17-17. The game would then be decided when one team was two goals in front, and that team turned out to be St Mary’s Stars, who won 19-17.

Spring Grand Finals - Malvern Teams Win 2 Premierships, 4 Teams are Runners-up

12 Dec 2019

2019 WDNA Spring Grand Finals day was a fine, cool December day. Six Malvern teams were competing.

Junior 28

Malvern Chaos d Camberwell Dynamites 4-1,6-3,8-8,11-11, 13-12(extra time)

Malvern Chaos WDNA Junior 28 Spring 2019 Premiers

Junior 22

Malvern Havoc d Mt Waverley Thunder 4-4,11-7,20-10, 27-15

Malvern Havoc - WDNA Junior 22 Spring 2019 Premiers

Havoc had had an undefeated season. They led 11-7 at half time, and a 16 goals to 8 second half saw them run out winners by 12. Havoc, too, had won premierships in both Winter and Spring. Coincidentally, they played the same opponent in each Grand Final, and the scores were identical!

Junior 13

Malvern Scorchers were defeated by St Cecilia's Comets 2-12, 8-18, 13-27, 19-35

Scorchers came up against a strong Comets team, who started brilliantly and were never headed.

Junior 11

Malvern Whirlwinds were defeated by PLC Force 4-9,8-20,14-25, 19-32

Malvern Whirlwinds - WDNA Junior 11 Spring 2019 Runners up

Whirlwinds had finished third on the ladder, and did well to make the Grand Final. Their second half was very competitive, but unfortunately the damage had been done by half time.

Junior 7

Malvern Cyclones were defeated by St Michael's Gems 4-9,5-15,10-23, 14-29

Malvern Cyclones - WDNA Junior 7 Spring 2019 Runners up

The only team that had beaten Cyclones during the home and away season was St Michael's Gems, twice. Gems had had an unbeaten season, and their form carried through to Grand Final day.

Junior 3

Malvern Lightning were defeated by Korowa Thunder 5-8,11-13,17-19, 24-25

Malvern Lightning - WDNA Junior 3 Spring 2019 Runners up

These two teams had played an extremely close Grand Final in the winter season, with Korowa winning in extra time. Their games played in the Spring season went one each way. Thunder started well, and led at each change. The final quarter was a tense struggle, with Lightning gaining the lead late in the term. Two late goals by Thunder saw them run out winners by the most slender of margins.

Well done to all the teams that represented Malvern over the 2019 seasons.
