The last two DOOLEYS Metro League 2018 Grand Finals took place last night at Genea Netball Centre, with Randwick taking out the Division 1 title, and Manly-Warringah taking out the Division 2 top spot.
The first game of the night was a thrilling one between Minor Premiers Randwick and Northern Suburbs (who finished third).
Randwick maintained their lead for half the game but Northern Suburbs caught up in the third quarter to level the score 32-all. It was down to the final seconds of the game where Randwick just scored one more goal than their opponents to finish the match 45-44.
The Division 2 final score might not have been as close, but the game was just as exciting. Minor Premiers Manly-Warringah (who lost to Inner Western Suburbs during the season) had a strong start to the game, finishing the third quarter with an 11-goal lead.
Despite an impressive performance by Inner West in the last 15 minutes which saw them outscore their rivals 13-8, Manly-Warringah took the win, 44-38.
Congratulations to all DOOLEYS Metro League 2018 participants for an incredible season. We can’t wait for next year!
