The Byron Bay Magpies enjoying their premiership-winning season and an emphatic win

The Byron Bay AFL firsts have won their third premiership on the trot when they proved too strong for the Ballina Bombers playing at home on Saturday at the Cavanbah Centre.

The Magpies put on seven unanswered goals in the first quarter as they run away with the grandfinal winning it convincingly 21.9-135–4.6-30.

A platform for the Club’s premiership double was set earlier in the day when the reserves also beat a Ballina Bombers side to claim their flag with a  10.5-65–6.2-38 win.

In the Women’s competition the Lismore Swans confirmed they are the region’s top side with their second premiership in a row.

It was another largely one-sided game as they overpowered the Tweed Tigers 8.11-59–2.2-14.
