Season-ending victory for the Eagles

2 10 2006

Footy’s over for another year.

On Saturday, in front of a crowd of almost 100,000 people, the West Coast Eagles defeated Sydney by 1 point! What a game! Even though I’m not an Eagles fan, it was great to see one of the two local (West Australian) teams win – especially as they lost to the Sydney Swans by only 4 points in last year’s Grand Final. Maybe Freo will get their turn next year…
Side note: It seems that the last time a Grand Final was decided by one point was 1966 – 40 years ago. So it was a thriller!
