Five-a-side heads into last games of the season

FIVE-A-SIDE: It's been a heated season and now after three months of fun and games, five-a-side football becomes a little more serious on Wednesday night with the start of the finals series.

Major and minor semis will be played in A and B-grades in both men's and ladies Stanthorpe YMCA five-a-side competitions.

Co-ordinator Steve McEvoy said it had been a strong season for five-a-side.

"The competition has been well supported again this season and some good football has been played along with some great goals scored,” McEvoy said.

"The Stanthorpe YMCA introduced five-a-side 12 years ago and it is going as strong as ever, the seasons have flown past.”

The finals this year will be as hotly contested as they have always been.

"In the men's A-grade, Fabregasm remain the only undefeated team in the competition but they will need to be wary of Poponi who are set on revenge following two close losses,” McEvoy said.

"While the loser of this match will live to fight another day, neither team will be looking forward to the prospect of facing either a BB or Gringos team who have both shown that on their day they can beat anyone.

"The ladies A-grade is very similar with The Rovers and Still Got It the most consistent teams in the competition facing off for a grand final spot.

"Vicious and Delicious and United White will battle it out for the right to play in the preliminary final next week.”

In the B-grade men's final, Full Tilt and A team will play for a grand final spot, and the loser will face Barbarians next week.

The ladies B-grade games will be close results as Risky Business and United Yellow have had entertaining games all year.

The clash between the Ballandean Ladies and Foxy Ladies should also be a close battle.
