The Maddogs celebrate victory in the Mullumbimby six-a-side soccer competition.

The Mullumbimby six-a-side soccer competition was decided last month when the Maddogs achieved a 2–0 victory over their arch-rivals Classic VI in the A grade grandfinal.

Each team had beaten the other during the season so the ultimate prize was far from a foregone conclusion when the sides met in the competition’s highly-anticipated finale.

The Maddog’s captain proved the difference and led the way for his team scoring both of his side’s goals.

Grandfinals were also conducted in all other grades. The winners were:

B grade: A Stars

C grade: Rusty Trombones

D grade: The Jerrys

E grade: Benoits

F grade: Young Guns.
