Aberfeldie went back-to-back, easily accounting for Keilor at Windy Hill in the EDFL Premier Division Grand Final. Keilor kicked the opening 2 goals of the game but Abers steadied and opened up a handy 6 goal lead at half-time. From there the result was never in doubt, the Gorillas victorious by 61 points. Former Bomber Courtney Johns retires with a 2nd successive flag. Ex-Blue and Sandover Medallist Luke Blackwell won best afield honours.

What happened to Kyle Reimers? He was playing early in the season for Abers.


#63

I was told dropped for disciplinary issues. Went back to the 2s, kicked 13 in a quarter and a half, pinged a calf and didn’t get back in. Apparently played in the 2s finals campaign…

Some other grand finals this week:

Werribee hosts the WRFL Division 1 Grand Final between Marc Bullen’s Deer Park and a Hoppers Crossing side looking to break a premiership drought since the 2000’s.

Down in Geelong, South Barwon have not made the grand final this time around. It’s St. Marys and St. Joseph’s!
Melton play East Point at North Ballarat in the Ballarat league.
Eaglehawk take on Strathfieldsaye in the Bendigo league.

Vermont gets the flag for the first time since 2009.

Kicking into the breeze in the first quarter, they managed 6 goals to one, with eventual BOG Ainger kicking 4 of the 6.

5 goals to 1 with the wind ensured the game was over on the scoreboard.

To South Croydon’s credit, they outscored Vermont 8 goals to 4 after half-time, lead by 6 goals from Max King.

In the end 15.11.101 to 10.6.66.

Vermont’s reserves made it a party with a smashing of South Croydon 13.8.86 to 2.7.19.

Koroit won their fifth in a row over Camperdown by 11 points, 8.9 to 6.10. I think only in one or two of those 5 they’ve strolled through.

First one they beat Warrnambool after being smashed in the second semi.
They beat North Warrnambool easily after being miles down at quarter time.
This year, they got beaten in the second semi and beat Port Fairy by a goal in the prelim.


#67

Seville continue their form, losing another granny (think that’s 7 in 11 years).
I wasn’t there but apparently they didn’t even stay on the ground for the presentation.


#68

The oranges would taste very bitter.


#69

Fark me, that’s pretty poor form


#70

Deer Park won their 6th straight premiership in the WRFL with a 46 point win over Hoppers Crossing at Werribee.

It’s a staggering effort by Marc Bullen’s boys.
