Bridgetown Football Club are 2023 reserves premiers after defeating Imperials Football Club by 14 points in the Lower South West Football League grand final on Saturday. Securing their fourth grand final win in the last decade was no easy feat, with the Magpies giving the undefeated side a run for their money after a poor first quarter. It was clear early on Bridgetown was the more dominant side, keeping the Magpies scoreless during the first quarter. While Bridgetown was still in control of the game during the second quarter, Imperials did begin to claw their way into the contest. Scoring two goals to Bridgetown’s one in the third quarter, it looked as though Imperials were going to make a comeback. But despite some standout performances from Mitchell Daube, Brian Matthews, Clint Zabaznow, Keenan-cruz Wilson, Bailey Scott and Damon Scaini, the Magpies fell short of getting the job done. The final score was 7.8 (50) to 5.6 (36) to Bridgetown. The Doc Ryan Medal was awarded to Bridgetown’s Brett Davies who put on an impressive best on ground performance. Bridgetown’s James McAlinden, Tyson Hayes, Morgan Price and Thomas Wilson were also recognised for their football skills on the day.
