A Big Night for the DAFL.

A Bigger Night for Slugs & Goats


In a game that typified the average DAFL season - drama and goals a plenty, Slugs & Goats have made history as the first team to win promotion and then win the Premiership league title in the following season.

From going an early goal up against Allstars, then gaining a man advantage shortly after, when a Slugs & Goats attacker was brought down in a 'last man sending off'. Another two goals saw Slugs take a seemingly unassailable 3-0 lead, with only half an hour gone.

But the game was far from over. Allstars scored a clinical goal from a headed corner just before half time, before adding another quality strike early in the second half to regain momentum and shake the game up.

Just when it looked like the comeback of comebacks could happen, Slugs added a fourth midway in the second half, and sealed victory with a fifth shortly before full time as Allstars pressed forward in a bid to reduce the deficit.


Congratulations to Slugs & Goats. Commiserations to New Balance Allstars.

Additional congratulations for Blues in securing the League 1 title, McGettigan's Irish DWTC the League 2 title, Cara Allstars D the League 3 title, and Cabana Dubai FC the Vets League title.


All league trophies presentations for Division Winners and Runners Up will be at The Sevens on Monday 14th at the cup finals night.
