Bells blast finals in North Coast Football

THE Bell family is about ready to call Rushforth Park their second home today with kids Jesse and Caitlin lining up for Westlawn Tigers in grand finals and dad Terry donning the light blue of Coutts Crossing in the main event 2nd Division grand final.

"I am extremely excited for this weekend," Mr Bell said. "I think Coutts can get the win in 2nd Grade and I think both the kids will be successful as well."

Jesse will be lining up for the undefeated Westlawn Tigers Under 14s team while Caitlin will toil away in the Under 13s grand final.

For the family patriarch his Cougars side will face stiff opposition from Minor Premiers Yamba Breakers in the closing match of the day.

"It has been a pretty good year this year," he said. "We had a few new players join the club and we finished the regular season in third spot and won our home and away finals to get into the grand final."

Breakers captain/coach Marty Dougherty said his side will be wary of a strong Cougars opposition.

"Coutts are a tough team to beat, he said. "We beat them twice earlier in the season, but then they beat us 3-2 the last time we played them.

"We certainly are not thinking we have it easy."
