THE second half of the Shoalhaven Football Association’s second grade grand final, depending which side of the fence you stood, was the longest or the fastest period of the season.
For the Bomaderry Tigers, as they clung to the 1-nil lead, it was the longest second half they played all year.
For the Calalla Brumbies, as they tried with all their might to get the equaliser, the second half went too fast.
The Tigers in the end held onto its 1-nil lead and both teams were exhausted at fulltime.
The Tigers barely had the energy to celebrate, while the Brumbies possibly regretted their missed opportunities.
Calalla came at the Tigers strongly in the second half but could not find the back of the net.
The tricky wind conditions meant Callala’s attempts to score went way over the goal - not into it.
The only goal of the match was a Robert Bricklebank special and came around the 25-minute mark.
Bricklebank blasted the ball to the right side of the goal and Callala keeper had no chance of stopping it.
