Div 4 Central Grand Final Preview
It is never easy for an underdog to knock-out a heavyweight.
And tonight’s David and Goliath battle between Zilmere and Yeronga in the Division 4 Central grand final is no exception.
Yeronga will have to overcome all the odds to knock off the heavily favoured Eagles, who have been in scintillating form throughout the entirety of 2013.
Zillmere have been the competition’s powerhouse from the get-go, their intensity, poise and quality of play suffocating even the most established opposition.
They have thrashed every team in their path on the way to a remarkable 19-0 record, no team coming close to knocking the seemingly invincible Eagles of their perch.
The Eagles 19-0 record includes three crushing wins against their grand final rivals, Yeronga, who haven’t been able to adapt to Zillmere’s aggressive and intense style of play.
The bad news only gets worse for Yeronga, as Zillmere have thrashed seven teams by 100+ points this season and have only conceded an average of 21 points per game.
Clearly, Yeronga will need to conquer some staggering statistics if they have any chance of snapping the Eagles winning streak tomorrow night.
It isn’t all doom and gloom for Yeronga, who have had a very respectable 15-5 record of their own, as well as numerous wins against quality competition.
They stumbled against Zillmere in the qualifying final before hammering Jimboomba by 45-points to earn their grand final spot and have one last crack at the Eagles.
Chris Ryan has been superb for Yeronga since his return from injury, booting 20 goals in his last 4 outings. He could provide the much needed X-factor come Friday night.
Zillmere will head into tomorrow night’s game as nearly unbackable favourites, hoping to finish the year with a premiership and a perfect 20-0 record.
Anything can happen in sport however, Yeronga hoping to cause the upset of the season.
The decider will kick-off tomorrow night at 7:00pm at Giffin Park, Coorparoo.

STAR EAGLE FLYING HIGH AS PART OF GROWING CROP OF TOP FEMALE PLAYERS
ALLY Anderson has seen first-hand just how good Australia’s female footballers can be.
Picture: Russell Brown Zillmere Eagles midfielder Ally Anderson believes a national women’s AFL competition would be a raging success.
Having helped create history as one of 50 players to take part in the inaugural AFL Women’s Exhibition Match at the MCG in June, the class Zillmere Eagles midfielder can attest to the quality of this country’s best.
The one-off encounter, played between Anderson’s Western Bulldogs and the victorious Melbourne Demons, served to highlight the talent of female players, with the AFL now hopeful of setting up a national women’s league by 2020.
And Anderson has no doubt it would be a raging success.
“There’s definitely enough talent. Seeing the skill level (at the MCG), the girls we were playing with were very good,” she said.
“The game was just about the exposure and to show our talent and what we can do. It was a great atmosphere. I think they ended up getting around 7000 (spectators) by the end of the game, and there was between 3000 and 5000 at the start.
“It was just great to be out there and play on the field and hopefully if they do it again next year I can be even better.”
Played as the curtain-raiser to the men’s Bulldogs-Demons clash, the women’s game capped a whirlwind two weeks for Anderson.
She was a member of the Queensland side that finished third at the national championships days earlier.
Making her debut in the seniors after two years with the state under-18 team, Anderson took heart from her performances on the big stage.
“It was a lot different but just as good.
“I think we’ve come third the last couple of nationals so it’s pretty good to keep where we’re at and hopefully improve next year,” she said.
