Congratulations to Grenfell junior soccer’s Under 12s team the Wasps, winners of the 2017 grand final on Saturday, August 26  in Young.

The Wasps were in front for the entire game until the team from Young came back in the last 10 minutes scoring a goal in the final minute taking the score to a 2 all draw.

It was just like a repeat from last week where the game was forced into overtime with 10 minutes being played either end.

There was no score for the first 10 minutes in extra time, keeping the coach and all the parents on the sideline on the edge of their seats.

The Wasps scored a spectacular goal in the final 10 minutes to seal the victory for their team in a nail biting finish.

A huge well done goes out to all members of the team. The 2017 Wasps consisted of Oliver Taylor, Riley Gray, Emily Amey, Angus Troth, Riley Aspin, Jake Troth, Dylan Beasley, Max Brenner, Hayley Taylor, Annabella Taylor, Emily Brenner, Reuben Ryan, Harry Best, Hugh Allen and Annie Armstrong, you all played great in the grand final as well as throughout the entire season.

A special shout out to Reuben Ryan who did a fantastic job as goalie on the day and to Ross Brenner for coaching the team and doing a fantastic job.

Thanks also to all the family and friends who turned up to support the team week after week throughout the season, your support was very much appreciated. Again well done to the players, you should all be very proud.
