The TIFL Grand Final was pushed back a week this season due to Cyclone Marcus however that didn’t stop people from coming over to the Islands in force for a great day of footy, traditional art, and of course a great community atmosphere.
The first half was played at a frenetic pace and the crowd are certainly loving the game. In a free flowing match, was a very close contest but the Dockers edged in front towards the end of the second quarter. In the end, it went down to the wire and was an absolute nail bitter. The buffs scored a goal with two minutes on the clock to get them in front then the Dockers kicked two with less than a minute to go to get the win
