18E's Win It In A Thriller
The Miranda Magpies 18E's have won the Miranda Magpies a second premiership in 2019, with a dramatic, drama filled 2-1 victory at Barden Ridge.
The 18E's finished the season with the Minor Premiership with 14 wins and 3 losses and 42 points. Their rival St Patricks, were right behind them in second spot with 13 wins 1 draw and 3 losses for 40 points. The two sides played off week 1 of the finals with Miranda progressing following the extra time, 1 all draw. St Patrick's really pushed them that day and they knew they'd be seeing them again shortly.
St Patrick's fired into the Grand Final with a 7-1 thumping of Menai and there was always going to be plenty of fight in this one.
Miranda raced to a 2-0 lead before St Patrick's scored just before the break for a 2-1 halftime lead. St Patrick's received a penalty in the second half which was brilliantly saved by goalkeeper Tom. The Magpies also had to endure a player in the sin bin for 10 minutes but held on for a famous victory. Celebrations after the game were captured on Magpies Instagram so make sure you check it out.
Congratulations to Ibbo and the team for an amazing season. Well done Champions!
