Battling freezing, wet conditions the BMO Bandits put on a stellar performance in the touch football Grand Final last night. In a true demonstration of the BMO ‘can-do’ spirit, the team hit the soggy paddock with gusto and enthusiasm. Despite the rain bucketing down during the first half, the team fought on unperturbed.
The was game going try-for-try for most of the match, and even after a peer-pressured Sam made a brief and premature return from injury with a couple of handy runs in the second half, BMO was only able to edge one ahead of a very determined Crusaders side. On even points, we looked set for a drop when devastation ensued for the Bandits, and the Crusaders managed to cross the line right in the dying minutes to take the final score to 7-8.
The evening finished with presentations where our very own rucking machine Kaitlyn McDonald took out Player of the Final and our super star Jasmine Gash was awarded (jointly with Sophie Walton) Best and Fairest Female Player for the whole the season. It may have been Dalby Mixed E Grade but we fought like it was origin night.
