Captain Sean Lewis says ACE will not ease up in their last match of the season against premiers St George Willawong tonight.
The Premier League title has been decided. St George lifted the trophy in midweek and after two successive titles. ACE finish as runners-up.
But Sean, the most successful skipper in ACE history, said: “It’s extremely important to finish well. You are only as good as your last game.
“At the end of any season you always want to finish well and go into the break on a high … not a low.
“We’ve been together for so many months. Everyone has worked hard and we want to put in a good, committed effort … then go off and have our breaks.”
St George Willawong have had a remarkable debut season in the BPL dropping only two points (in a 2-2 draw with Centenary Stormers recently).
ACE have won nine and drawn one of their last 10 games, scoring most goals (50) in the Premier League – and go into the weekend 10 points clear of third-placed Toowong.
But it’s the manner in which ACE have secured those recent victories which stands out for Sean.
“In terms of form, I don’t think I’d say we are in our best form of this season right now,” said the commanding central defender. “But I would say, in terms of the heart we’ve shown we have been great. We don’t give up.
“We were down against Centenary Stormers (won 2-1), we were down against Toowong (won 3-2), we were down against Grange (won 3-2), but we’ve not given up and found a way to win.
“We’ve come through a lot of tough games against tough teams and made sure we got a W (win). That is what’s impressed me.”
ACE Reserves also finish their season tomorrow against St George Reserves at 4pm with the visitors closing in on the Reserves title as well.
