|Brad Chilcott shoots for Devonport against Prospect|
Devonport were crowned the Mies family Cup Champions today after a 0-0 Final against Ulverstone was decided on penalties 4-2 in Devonport’s favour.
Both Coastal clubs looked very strong and made a statement to the rest of the competition in the first hit out for the year.
Chris Mckenna’s Devonport looked as strong if not stronger than 2011, while Ulverstone will be one of the big improvers of 2012 if this snippet was anything to go by. Nick Owens Conkie brothers were in good touch and age has obviously not bothered them at all. With Connor Meanie and Braden Mann still to come back, Ulverstone will be a team to be careful of.
Both Devonport and Ulverstone had big wins in the 50 minutes matches, Ulverstone getting to the final with a pair of 4-0 wins over Northern Rangers and the NTC respectively, while Devonport hit Prospect Knights 3-0 and Launceston City’s second side 4-0.
