Mazenod College have overcome a variety of the challenges to book their place in the WAFC Eagles Year 8/9 Schoolboys Cup Grand Final.

The curtain rasier is to be played at Domain Stadium, on Saturday the 5th of September as the pre-cursor to the West Coast Eagles vs St. Kilda game. After weeks of strong competition, the Mazenod College Year 8/9 team has moved through undefeated and will play Comet Bay College in the grand final.

Superbly led by their Phys Ed department and coach, Jake Akmens with assistant, Tim Grabski, Mazenod safely negiotated through the Swans/Royals District Metro Zone, beating fellow super powers, Darling Range Sports College and Governor Stirling SHS before advancing to to the Swans Metro/Country game against Bunbury Catholic College. A comprehensive win followed and a trip to Jurien Bay was the result to line up against a strong Nagle Bay outfit in the Quarter Final.

Led by captain, Luke English, with 4 goals, the Mazenod team displayed some outstanding quality football to run out solid victors. After coming out as the Swans Metro & Country winners, Mazenod were drawn Sacred Heart College with a chance to earn the right to play at Domain Stadium.

As voted by WAFC District staff & umpires, best on ground, Mav Hamilton ensured Mazenod ran out comfortable winners after a spirited first half by the Sacred Heart team. Swans District Development Officer, Dan Curtis spoke of the quality of school football in the District, "We have a number of strong football schools and programs not only in Swans District but also in the State and it's a credit to the football program put in place by the Phys Ed Department at Mazenod College to have this fantastic opportunity in the coming weeks".

Swans District wishes Mazenod College the best of luck in their attempt to become the WAFC Eagles Year 8/9 Schoolboys Champions in 2015.
