Wednesday, May 23, 2018 - 12:22 PM

The 2018 AFL 9's Season started off with some great news with teams being told they will get to play at the new Fremantle Dockers Training Facilities (Victor George Kailis Oval), Cockurn Arc. 
Nine teams registered to be among the first to play on an AFL quality training field. 

It was a long hard fought season with all teams showing up every Wednesday night looking forward to their games. Soon enough the end of the season was in site and teams are hustling for top position on the ladder. Going into the last week of games before finals, there were five teams all in reach of grasping onto a grand final appearance. The results were in... the two teams that had reached the grand final were Don't Argue and the South Metro Stallions. Both of these teams have a previous history against one another having played in several seasons together, so it was shaping out to be a hard fought game. As for the other teams they would verse the next closest team to them on the ladder (3 vs 4, 5 vs 6 etc).

The big night had finally arrived, teams were rocking up to play their final game and to see who would be crowned the Cockburn AFL 9's Summer Champions. The first half was an absolute thriller with the South Metro Stallions 2.0 - 12 leading Don't Argue 1.4 - 11 at the break. The Stallions taking full opportunity of their chances in the first half with Don't Argue letting themselves down with their inaccuracy in front of goal. The second half was a different story to the first with Don't Argue fixing their woes in front of the goals, kicking 4.4 - 28 in the half with the Stallions kicking 2.0 - 12. With the final scores being Don't Argue 5.9 - 39 defeating the South Metro Stallions 4.0 - 24. It was a fantastic game to watch with both teams putting on an AFL 9's master class for the ages.
