The Hockey Victoria Men’s metro B north premiership was always headed to Craigieburn Falcons on Saturday, but it was a matter of which team took out the title.

With their top two sides, the Warriors and the Dribblers facing each other in the grand final it had been the perfect outcome for the Falcons in their first season.

In the end, it was the club’s top side the Warriors that came out on top in a high scoring grand final against the club’s second side the Dribblers.

The Warriors taking victory, 8-4.

Falcons committee member Sikander Sharma previously said they didn’t expect when they formed the club to have both teams in the grand final.

“It is a great feeling to the club in it’s first year,” he said.

“When we entered the competition, we couldn’t enter teams any higher divisions, so they were in the same division.

“We had some good players and expected our top side to finish high, but we didn’t expect the second team to make the grand final.”

Tarwinder Kullar and Ripu Daman Toor was two of the stars for the Falcons, scoring 66 and 41 goals respectively for the season.

The Falcons master’s team and women’s team both finished the season in third, while their junior team was runners-up.
