On Sunday, Heathcote travelled to Gunbower to play in the first semi-final against Leitchville-Gunbower.
It was another final in which the opposition had the home ground advantage.
After leaving Heathcote at some ungodly hour to make the trip, the Saints arrived in good spirits and looked set to have a good day.
Heathcote jumped out of the blocks early and kicked the first two goals of the game and all was abuzz.
This was to be the only highlight for the boys, as Leitchville-Gunbower took control after quarter-time, kicking five goals to one in the second quarter.
At half-time the Saints had the fire in the belly but could not take it out onto the ground.
Although they tried hard and had a real crack, Leitchville-Gunbower was too strong on the day, defeating Heathcote by37 points, 12.9
Vincent Romagnano really stepped up and tried all day.
Nic Tobin was again a good player, Geoff Delaney continued his good form down back and Josh Formosa and Dillon Hardy ran and tried their guts out.
Overall, the Saints came a long way in 2014, starting the year with 14 players and building to have 21 by the end of the season.
This included a number of boys playing football for the first time, with their youngest player only 13.
The boys should hold their heads high.
Thank you to all the people who helped them enjoy their 2014 season.
