2016 GRAND FINAL AND PRESENTATION NIGHT DETAILS

PDC GUZZLERS WIN GRAND FINAL.

Congratulations to PDC Guzzlers on winning their first Fantasy League premiership

Fantasy League - Guzzlers.jpg

What a Grand Final it was!

Kalma came in first with great scores from Frank Fitzpatrick 43, Daniel Nast 37 and Ian Whitehead 35. Their team total of 115 was outstanding and would have won on nearly every occasion during the season.

But Guzzlers reached for a special level of performance in the Grand Final with Wade McDonald 45, Russell Northe 40 and Ian Wallis 39. Their team score of 124 was the second highest for the season. (Mixed Bag scored 125 in the very first game of the year).

The Norm Smith Medal for the highest score in the Grand Final went to Wade McDonald for his 45 points.

Guzzlers have been a very successful team in the Fantasy league and deserved their victory after finishing as runner up last season.

Congratulations to Kalma whose effort was fantastic on the day. They had a great year and maybe it will be their turn next year.

The season has been a very competitive one. The new teams to the competition, Mixed Bag and Thymosin Beta 7 both had really good first seasons and were very close to making the finals. Shot Offs, in their second season made the finals and will be looking to build on that next year.

Seven Sultans of Swing were maybe the unluckiest team with a draw and a couple of losses by only one point. So they will be looking forward to next season.

The true story of the Fantasy League is that every shot counts. That missed putt or duffed chip can be the difference between winning and losing. The other key team factor is making sure that the maximum number of players possible, plays each week.

We look forward to 2017.

BRAND AND TREASE TIE FOR BROWNLOW MEDAL
