2018 in a Nutshell
The year that nearly was… disappointed to get so close only to miss out but excited to have made it as far with as many setbacks. At the beginning of last

The Pies wont lose more than 5 games
in the regular season setting up another finals charge.
Three or more Pies will kick 50 plus goals.
