The Redlegs got off to a slow start in the preliminary final as Longford kept Bracknell scoreless in the first term and solidified their lead at halftime.

Bracknell coach Corry Goodluck threw Jacob Huett on offense after the shutdown of key Longford forward Matt Dennis which turned the tide for the Redlegs. “He can play center-back, center-forward and that just created another target for us up there,” Goodluck said. “To his credit, he stood up and he shone when it counted and scored some very important goals and goals.” Goodluck added a goal at the end of the third term before Bracknell increased a slim lead throughout the last term to secure their advance to the grand final next week.
