ELLISTON MAKES HISTORY
FIRST MID WEST CLUB TO GO FROM
WOODDEN SPOON TO PREMIERS
Sunday 9 September 2012
Elliston took out the 2012 Mid West Premiership, defeating the West Coast Hawks by 41 points at Wirrulla. After a great first term by Elliston where they kicked 4.6 to 2.2 the Hawks bounced back in the second term and at the long break led by four points.
In the third term, Elliston put paid to the Hawks comeback and dominated proceedings, adding 6.1 to 0.1 to set up a match winning lead. They finished off the job in the last quarter, breaking a 12 year drought and ending the Hawks run of three consecutive flags.
Club President Darryl Huppatz was “over the moon” with the result, saying the win was the result of a lot of hard work.
“We had a lot of issues last year, finishing bottom and struggling to field a B grade, so in the off-season the Committee worked very hard. We did some recruiting, the lads had a big pre-season and it has paid off”
“We still had our fair share of injuries, using over 50 players in the A Grade this season and it wasn’t until the Grand Final that we actually had our best side on the park. “
Huppatz says it’s a big deal for the small Eyre Peninsula town of just 240 people. “We along with Wirrulla are the only two teams in the competition to not have amalgamated, so to win the Premiership is great and hopefully will set us up for the future”.
Meanwhile Huppatz says the celebrations will last most the week, “Not too many lads went to bed Saturday night and with our Club end of season day today, it’ll be the start of a few big few days”.
