Cable Beach have won their fourth premiership in a row after defeating the Broome Towns by nine points in a thrilling grand final at Haynes Oval on Saturday afternoon. Towns were on the back foot from the get-go, failing to score anything up until the last moments of the first quarter when Brent Simons put through a major. Towns bounced back in the second, kicking a slew of crucial goals in quick succession to keep themselves in the game while Cable Beach struggled to adapt to the revised Towns’ game plan. The third term belonged to Cable Beach who, with their tenacity and superior skill, extended their lead to several goals while Towns struggled to match them. Towns put in a valiant effort coming into the final term to reduce the gap back to within a goal. But then Cable Beach pulled out all the stops, kicking two crucial goal to take home the premiership win, 11.7 (73) to 10.4 (64). After the match, Broome Towns coach Andrew Blackley congratulated Cable Beach on their win. “Congratulations to Cable Beach. You’ve been the ones to beat for the last four years and we were going to try and take right up to you,” he said. “We stretched you throughout the year but today you were just too good and got over the line, so congratulations. “To my guys, I’m very proud. Two years ago we didn’t win a game of football, last year we scraped into the finals and this year we had a fair old crack, so thank you guys for a fantastic season. “You learn from these experiences and we’ll be back next year, don’t you worry.” Cable Beach coach Ethan Corpus gave his commiserations to the Broome Towns on their loss. “Too often we base success on the ultimate. From where you boys were the last few years to where you guys are now, you boys had a pretty successful season, so keep your heads up. No doubt we’ll see you back next year,” he said. “To our boys, just keep on keeping on. You’re a boss bunch of a group and I couldn’t ask any more for your efforts today boys. “We’ve got the best supporters in the WKFL. Thanks for supporting us and our sponsors and hopefully we go again next year.” Cable Beach’s Joseph Dann was presented with the McMahon Medal for best on ground, with the WKFL veteran now having won his 10th premiership since 2007. Cable Beach has now won four premierships in a row, just one shy of the WKFL record of five held by Towns from 1974 to 1978. This year’s flag is the 11th premiership Cable Beach has won since 1996. The Cable Beach women’s team also won the WKFLW premiership over the weekend defeating the Looma Eagles.
