UWA Premier Grade have won their second Premiership in 4 seasons with a nail biting 16-13 victory. Leading 16-3 at half time UWA dominated both territory and possession. Cottesloe tried to upset our composure and there was some vigorous play but Uni kept its discipline and didnt lay down. Levon Kvas-Rothwell, the competitions highest points scorer this year, kicked a conversion from a Ben Taylor try and 3 penalties. In the second half Cott held sway with an early penalty through pressure and territory to edge back to 16-6. Uni held on time again repelling their attacks until our defence finally gave way with a converted try from continued pick and drive near the posts to draw close at 16-13. Game on.
Several lost scrums put us on the back foot but great mauling saw us driving Cott back 20 metres at times which relieved pressure. A yellow card to Cott for no arms tackle and a further Cottesloe red card to a dangerous tackle relieved some pressure as we marched down the field.
With great support from the Uni spectators the battered and broken boys just kept going until they kicked to touch and threw their arms up in celebration.
The previous day 4th Grade defeated Mandurah 27-10 to secure the "Hippos" 6th straight Grand Final victory in the 4 tries to one win. All credit to Damian O'Donnell who has guided this "caravan" to success and now steps down to encourage the next generation to continue forward in the search for 7 Grand Finals in a row.
