TWO units from 7 Bde -- 8/9RAR and
2/14 LHR (QMI) -- went head-to-head
in hard-fought soccer and Aussie rules
finals on September 17.
Held back-to-back on Gallipoli
Barracks' Duncan Oval, the finals proved
a double victory for the 8/9RAR Rams,
which took out the soccer 1-0 and the
Aussie rules 78-40.
The soccer was a close contest and
8/9RAR soccer team captain Pte Lee
Giannakopoulos said his team stepped up
to the challenge, played better on the day,
and got the result they wanted.
"The team was nervous to start
with, but we started playing our game,
knocking the ball around. We eventu-
ally got a goal and broke the ice," Pte
"Our unit hasn't been back around for
that long, but we are back into it straight
away and on the winner's list."
In the Aussie rules, the Rams control-
led the game from the opening bounce to
win 11-12-78 to 5-10-40.
The match was a hard-fought contest
with 8/9 dominating the wings with hard
running that outpaced and outlasted 2/14.
Rams captain LCpl Adam Stevenson
said his team did everything asked of
them and ran the game out strongly.
"I feel the legs are what got us over
the line in the end," LCpl Stevenson said,
adding that he believes his team has the
goods for next year's premiership.
"If we can keep the guys together with
the new blokes coming into the unit we
will be a worthy contender next year."
He said it was great to come together
in a new unit and get across the line.
This year 8/9RAR took part in the
competitions for the first time since being
re-raised in October 2007.
