After winning the 2019 premiership 2020 was always going to be a difficult season trying to go back to back.
But little did we know how 2020 was going to play out. Our season started in mid-January with preseason kicking off in the middle of summer and by mid-February we had already started playing our first preseason games.
The team was prepped and ready to start the season when Covid-19 hit and stopped our season in its tracks.
After nearly 4 months of no football we finally got back on the park with round 1 kicking off on Saturday 11th July.
We had a really good start to the season in which we lost our first game to Peakhurst in the last game of round 1 which left us in 2nd spot 7 point behind Peakhurst who increased their lead in 1st.
This seemed to lift the side which then went on a 5 game winning streak putting us into first stop.
The team then hit our first and only road block in which we dropped 2 games by large margins to Connells and Hurstville which dropped us to 3rd position going into our last round against first placed Peakhurst.
After a good soul searching session at Oatley Pub (with plenty of beers) on Wednesday night we came out and beat Peakhurst 3-0 and finished the season in equal 2nd spot 2 points of minor premiers.
We then faced Peakhurst again the following week in the Semi-final where the team showed all the quality we knew they had winning comfortably 4-2 and making another grand final.
Grand Final we came up against Hurstville Minotaurs which must have been one of the best grand finals for all neutral fans. After being up 4-2 Hurstville fought back levelling the game 4-4 in the 92nd minute of the game and the game seemed to be heading into extra time only for joint captain Lachlan Armstrong scoring the winning goal in the 97th minute with the last kick of the game.
After everything we went through as a squad this year this will probably go down as the best winning season of all.
