Bay Power's focus is purely on developing junior players
THIS season was all about junior development so qualifying for the finals would have merely been a bonus for coach Michael Gay.
Bay Power finished last on the A-grade table thanks largely to heavy losses.
When the Power lost they did so in spectacular fashion, with four losses by more than 100 points.
They failed to reach triple figures in any of their games, but conceded more than 100 points on nine occasions (from 13 games).
When they were switched on it was a completely different story.
Bay Power produced the biggest upset of the season in round 13 when they were the first team to beat Across The Waves.
ATW had previously eyed a rare undefeated season, but Bay Power shut the eventual premiers down 90-86 at Frank Coulthard Oval, Bundaberg.
The win proved Bay Power had the players to mix with, and better, AFL Wide Bay's best, and was sweet revenge for the Bay who was pummelled in their other three matches.
If 2015 is anything to go by next season could be the breakthrough year.
The juniors have developed and have a few years in the top competition under their belt, and it will be Gay's third year in charge.
Exciting times lie ahead at the club after they appeared in both the under-15 and U17 grand finals.
