Franner played their final league game this afternoon against table topping Divine Word. It was a thrilling encounter! Franner started sluggishly and were 2 o down after five minutes. However, captain Kevin M gave Franner hope with a stunning half volley from 30 yards out! Moments later, a first time cross from Dylan was expertly headed home by Mikey. The game was delicately poised at 2 2 when the referee blew the whistle for half time.
Divine Word showed their class to edge back in front after good work by their skillful centre forward. However, Franner did not let their heads drop and Kevin M cleverly found some space on the edge of the box before unleashing a ferocious shot into the corner of the net. Franner piled forward in search of the winner and only the width of the crossbar denied Bradley! Unfortunately with only minutes remaining Divine Word scrambled home the winning goal.
The end of a great season for Franner! The boys were not only brilliant on the field but their attitude and behaviour throughout the season has been top class. There have been many brilliant performances throughout the season and we look forward to many more next year.
