IT turned out the be the end of the season for all grades at Kalamunda Cougars Football Club on Saturday.

The the A grade league team was unable to secure a win and the E1s fell just short of Swan Districts in their elimination final.

On a brighter note, the colts won their third game of the year 8.5 (53) to 6.10 (46) and in doing so handed Scarborough the wooden spoon.

It should give the boys confidence for next season as their bodies mature and hopefully move up the ladder.

The A reserves again came up against a finals bound team, they fought hard all day but were out played going down 3.7 (25) to 9.6 (60).

I’m sure with a bit more depth the A reserves can be a strong team and we look forward to next year.

Knowing they needed a win to keep their slim finals chance alive, the A grade league team didn’t get the start they were after being four goals down at quarter time.

Second quarter was fairly even but in the third Scarborough kicked away to lead by eight goals at three-quarter time.

The final quarter the Cougars railed but fell short losing 6.8 (48) to 10.10 (70).

They may have missed out on finals but certainly a respectable season.

The E1s travelled to Roleystone as they hosted the first week of finals at Cross Park.

The Cougars lead the majority of the game until a last quarter surge from Swan Districts got them over the line winning 9.10 (64) to 9.6 (60).

The E1s players had at least another game in them but that’s finals football; they will again push for finals football next year.
