Grand Final 1 Winner: Hoops There It Is
Grand Final 2 Winner: Octopussies

Hoops There It Is has beaten Taylor Swish 27-13 to win Grand Final 1 in the inaugural Maccabi Social Mixed Netball Competition. Unbeaten throughout the competition, Hoops engaged in a tough and fast contest against the much-fancied Taylor Swish.
Channing Nunu Kramer and Jacob Stern both had huge games, their stray arms pulled a fair share of intercepts, all but neutralising competition MVPDavid Ehrlich. Haydee Katz led her team gallantly, but was matched footstep for footstep by the "Hoops heroes" in Manthy Gentin and Katherine Tobias.

Shayna Slotar more than earned her MVP award, even playing in the unusual position of goal keeper. Hoops held the lead for the duration of the match, and ultimately proved too strong for a Swish team that enriched the tournament with their passion and musical gusto.

In the tussle for best of the rest it was the Octoppusies that took out the title/small trophy. Shaun Reichman whizzed down the court, unmissable in pink kicks that would not have looked out of place on Gem Fink.

It was feather in the cap moment for a team that had a late season renaissance, and it was unfortunate that a trying Sweatball had to lose in the process. They fought gamely and provided a close contest, a high scoring contest that provided a foil to the tension in the other grand final.

The top half semi's were engaging affairs. Hoops flexed their muscles with a dominant display over a depleted Hot shots, shooting a season high 39 goals.

In the match of the night Taylor swish triumphed in overtime against a well drilled MMFA. It was a tight and tense contest, a great advertisement for the game.

Semi 1: Hoops There It Is 39 - 12 Hot Shots
