Sonny’s boundless energy had him constantly in the thick of the motion. Where the ball was, there was Sonny. He had a special talent for hitting the ball away from the offense, teaming well with Jim Jennings, Olivia Graham, Hayden Dowling and Ryan Vermeend to drive the ball back to their end of the court, where they landed many a goal for the Blue. Olivia’s shooting accuracy earned repeated applause. Few could stop Jim Jennings when he was moving with the ball.

In the Gold, Kaiden Cooper, Hugh Toner, Tylah Wallis, Dylan Price and Darcy Aitken were worth their weight in the precious metal – relentless, heroic, united. To see Hugh Toner jump, spin 360 degrees in the air while throwing the ball into a perfect goal was magic to behold.

The crowds were clapping and cheering as never before. What a game!
