It was a successful day for the Gymea club with the ‘Gorillas’ taking home the three most senior division titles at the Cronulla Sutherland Junior League Grand Finals yesterday.
The Gymea First Grade team withstood s spirited second half rally from De La Salle, before a late try to captain Nathan Wynn sealed the result for the Gorillas in the main game of the afternoon played before a healthy crowd at Southern Cross Group Stadium.
In the second grade match it was a nail-biter, with Gymea just hanging on to defeat St Josephs 18-16, while in the Emerging Cup it was Gymea once again, this time in somewhat of an upset as they defeated the hot favourites De La Salle by a score of 15-4.
Earlier in the day Bosco/Engadine scored a 20-12 win in the 17’s Division 1, while in the 16’s De La Salle proved far too good in registering a 30-4 victory.
Matches were also contested at Captain Cook Oval, with Cronulla Caringbah (15 2’s), Gymea (15 1’s), De La Salle (16 2’s) and Sutherland Loftus (17 2’s) claiming premierships in their respective age groups.
Grand Finals for under 9’s to under 14’s were contested two weeks ago.
