THE Stanthorpe Oztag season has come to an end - with a bang.

Under 12s, under 15s, the mixed open and social division played out semi and grand finals on the weekend.

The mixed open division had some well-fought competition with both semi finals and the grand final going to extra time after teams drew in normal time.

Got the Runs defeated Ankle Breakers in the semi final as well as Wii Not Fit in the grand final drawing on their excellent footy skills and speedy play.

"It was a very close competition,” John Cobon from Stanthorpe Oztag said.

"Both semi finals and the grand final went to overtime and they all had similar scores.”

In the social competition, Tradies and Ladies walked out winners after beating Ozzie Ozzie Ozzie 15:4 in the semi final and the Flintstones 15:6 in the grand final.

Cobon said Stanthorpe Oztag was pleased with how the season played out.

"The whole season went very well,” he said.

"It was a short season. We had nine rounds as well as the finals on Sunday.

"We had to have a few double games because of storms but I think everyone enjoyed the season and the finals.”

For the first time, Stanthorpe Oztag commenced a social division this year.

"The social competition went very well,” Cobon said.

"Hopefully we can get more parents playing next year so we make it more of a family comp with kids and their parents playing.”

To ensure the future of Stanthorpe Oztag, Cobon said it was important younger members of the community put up their hand.

"Hopefully we can get a few more people helping next year,” he said.

"We're hoping the younger people will get more involved. The people that are involved now have been involved for a long time and won't be able to do it for much longer.”

Most valuable players were acknowledged on Sunday.

The under 12s most valuable female player is Shania Politch.

Clayton Townsend took out most valuable under 12s male player.

In the under 15s competition, Abbey Holley claimed most valuable female player while Ky Rashleigh snatched most valuable male player.

Skye Marsh was the deserving winner of most valuable female player in the social competition.

Most valuable male player in the social division went to Brenton Schnitzerling.

Maddy Spencer is the winner of most valuable female player for the open mixed division while most valuable male player went to Hamish Cole.
