PICKING THE BEST FINAL If you were an unbiased VAFA watcher consumed by each of the twenty-six sections, which would be your favourite final of amateur football? There is no doubting the Premier Grand final is the pinnacle event on the VAFA calendar and we have made every effort to highlight it by having it as a stand alone event. The emotions of a grand final are totally different to those experienced on preliminary final day and maybe last weekend was the tensest. Aside from a premiership, one could mount a case that the Premier B Preliminary Final is the next most sought after victory. The match last Sunday at Coburg was exactly that, maybe not for the spectacular nature of the football but more in the tension. The stakes appear higher in this match than any other. The rewards are substantial, not only the chance to play in a grand final but importantly the guarantee of competing in the Premier Section for 2014. Old Trinity had dominated most of the season and seemed certain to bounce back from relegation from Premier, but a strong Old Brighton team put paid to them at Sportscover Arena last weekend. Any side that loses the second semi knows how anxious the week is leading up to the preliminary final. Does the loss strengthen them or do the mind games start kicking in and they start feeling vulnerable? There is nothing worse in football than going out in straight sets and the players and supporters get reminded of this all week. The response is never guaranteed. Old Trinity faced Old Melburnians who had already secured their reserves and thirds into grand finals and the club appeared to be ready to rejoin Premier. The game didn’t disappoint with at least 10 lead changes throughout the day. Both sets of supporters were unsettled as they paced the terraces. Old Trinity established a three goal lead in the final term but were caught and overtaken by OM’s. A controversial

goal on the siren saw Old Trinity hanging on by a point but in true amateur tradition the scoreboard attendants were equally stressed and thought a goal was worth 7 points and posted the scores as a draw. This was quickly rectified and Old Trinity were able to wipe their brow in relief. Along with Old Trinity another seven teams were promoted last weekend. Congratulations to Old Ivanhoe, who are now making Casey Fields their second home, as they head back to Premier B. Ormond defeated Williamstown in a tight affair at Trevor Barker and will be buoyed by their reentry into the Premier sections. Therry rebounded from their loss to join Yarra Valley in Division 1. In Divisions 3 and 4 we had 4 preliminary finals with Kew, Elsternwick, Eley Park and Northern Blues victorious. Kew has had a special year and has been rewarded with their seniors, reserves and Under 18’s all competing in Grand Finals. The final six brought up one interesting result with 6th placed Northern Blues defeating minor champions Hawthorn and backed it up on Sunday with another win against West Brunswick to head to a grand final in their first senior year in the VAFA. Preliminary final wins are generally greeted with sighs of relief, especially if they are won by the second semi loser, but this emotion will be replaced by scenes of joy this weekend as premierships are won. Over the weekend 20 teams will get the opportunity to raise a premiership cup. One would assume that the six senior premierships are the most coveted but try telling this to any of our players representing the six junior sections or the six reserves or indeed the two thirds teams which will raise a cup this weekend. For me the tensest match of the year is the Premier B Preliminary Final but the most enjoyable are all of the twenty-six grand finals.

THREE’S A CROWD As neutral spectators, we all wanted the second semi final to be a close encounter. One where any Old Xaverian frailties would be exposed and belief could be instilled in the remaining four teams that there were more runners than Puissance de Lune in this Cup field. For an all too brief moment we were treated to such possibilities. Peter McGettigan was on fire and St Bedes/Mentone were set for a brutal two hours of footy with Xavs for a spot in the decider. Those that saw Puissance de Lune’s run in the Queen Elizabeth on Stakes Day last year and instilled the grey as Cup favourite might have done likewise having witnessed the run of Old Xaverians after quarter time. On Sunday we were served the complete opposite, as Old Scotch and Blacks played out a classic contest befitting a knock out final. Let’s break it down the weekend’s action further. The Tigers led by 21 points at quarter time but proceeded to kick just 8 more points in total for the rest of the game! In contrast Old Xaverians piled on 76 points after quarter time to power into a 15th Premier Section Grand Final in 19 seasons. Any number of Old Xaverians players could have been awarded best on ground but it was players like Lees, Jenkinson, Kennedy and Ambrose that stood out. Not just because of their performances. Their contributions considering their youth and relative inexperience compared to Xavs other good players like Shaw, Colbert, Darvell, Williams and Prowse was significant . St Bedes/Mentone Tigers had an off day. As Mick Dwyer said in his post match press conference (check it out on the VAFA website if you haven’t seen it) perhaps only Simon Richards played at anywhere near the required level for four quarters. There is enough quality in the Tigers ranks to unsettle Xavs but first they need to get past Blacks in order to have another crack. University Blacks produced their highest score since Round 18, 2012 to defeat Old Scotch in a fantastic game of Premier football. The Cardinals will feel hard done by. It was the first time since 2

Round 10 Blacks had kicked more than 100 points and only the third time that they have done so in 2013. It’s ok if you don’t always manage to break the ton, as long as you are also restricting your opponents. The problem for Blacks was they were losing these low scoring games too. Old Scotch still managed to kick 16 goals, which makes the Blacks efforts to kick 19 all the more impressive. In terms of the game it was a corker, Old Scotch should feel like this is one that got away. Late in the first half their lead was 26 points, they were cutting Blacks open and looked to have more of their better players playing well. Feraro’s in and under work, Samson was clunking marks, Neaves was giving Jamieson first use and Richard Eva was getting important touches. Add to that the laser like kicking of Houlihan and Gilbee and it seemed everytime Scotch won the ball and moved it to space they were a chance to score. However two late goals to Blacks, one to Pattison after the siren had them within range at the long break. The third term was all about the Blacks as they piled on six goals to two with Mahon, Lacey and Weekly involved in most scores and Turner was playing a very solid game too. The last quarter looked as if the Cardinals had the running. Passador goaled twice and was a constant threat, then Burns slotted one from the square. If you were searching for a critical moment then Nick Jamieson being called for running too far was probably it. Just as another Scotch attack was to be launched, the silky midfielder overlooked the need to take a bounce and with that free kick, the momentum seemed to swing. Pattison was taking marks at both ends and when McCauley ran into an open goal for his third, the game was dusted. Blacks had found touch and Old Scotch were out at the 1st Semi stage for a second consecutive year. Preliminary finals are unfair. They throw together two teams in completely different circumstances. One team enters off a loss, with the knowledge that their finals campaign effectively starts now. The other team is riding high on the wind of a THE AMATEUR FOOTBALLER 2013

knock out finals win. Every sporting instinct and cliché indicates the Blacks should win today. Winners are grinners, you are only as good as you last performance and winning form is good form. However history tells us that you can throw all of these contemplations out with the bath water. There is rightly or wrongly a distinct advantage for the 2nd Semi Final loser heading into a prelim. Sure we always recall the teams that go out in ‘straight sets’ but the reason we do so is because it is so infrequent. It is these same things that lure us into the belief that the Prelim winner will go on to win the Grand Final. St Bedes/Mentone have had their let down, Uni Blacks have had the high of a knock out finals win. The Tigers will bounce back hard and perhaps Blacks have shown their hand. There are a number of keys that will make this match a captivating

one. Wintle and Robertson seemingly give a little to the Willingham/Pattison combination however we have seen Juice raise his game to lift this side a number of times this year alone. The skippers Mahon and Richards may play on each other or may be left to their own devices; if head-to-head then look to Richardson and Kean to see where an extra cog of drive can be extracted. So many Tigers had quiet games that it is hard to see them doing so for a second time running. On the other hand, almost every Blacks player produced for the side last week. Despite all things pointing to Blacks I expect the Tigers to bounce back. The have it in them and Blacks might have had their big effort last week. Tigers by 25.

BOUNCING STRAIGHT BACK UP Wednesday night’s Moore Medal vote count battle between Brendan Iezzi and Thomas Paule was an indication of things to come that weekend. Old Trinity claiming the Old Melburnian’s scalp finish ahead at the final siren sounded. The Trinner’s captain smashed the field in the count with an outstanding 33 votes, including 7 best on grounds to add another Moore Medal to his collection alongside his 2011 Woodrow Medal. Old Melburnian’s Thomas Paule was fantastic is his own right, polling 24 votes to finish second (a total that would have seen him win the medal last season) while Fitzroy’s Rory Angiolella rounded out the top 3 with 19. Sunday’s game between the two sides was a much tighter affair though, with a vast array of shifts in momentum and lead changes a common theme throughout the afternoon. The OM’s were quick to state their intent in the first term, pressuring Old Trinity to a series of uncharacteristic turnovers deep in defence. With Paule showing his class with clean disposal at the stoppages to continuously get the ball into dangerous positions, the Melburnian’s were finally gifted the first goal of the day after 12 minutes by capitalising on a missed opposition kick-out. The Trinners swiftly hit back through a Hunt running goal but poor disposal yet again let them down as the Melburnians swarmed on another opportunity deep in defence. A clumsy OM’s error on the mark resulted in a 25m penalty, which gave Ramsden the opportunity to slam home his first major for the game before Hywood marked well, to give OM’s a late goal and take a well earned lead into the first break. Old Trinity regained some composure in the second quarter through fantastic defensive rebounding by Tinney and the sheer dominance of Wildsmith, who seemed to be racking up possessions at will across the centre. Despite missing shots at goal early in the quarter, Ramsden showed his class with two back-to-back goals, the first a fantastic snap from the pocket was one of the best goals of the game. Melburnians wrestled 4

back a goal against the tide to come within two as the sides went back and forth with little success in converting chances. Both sides were looking dangerous with run and carry through the corridor but fantastic defence and sloppy forward entries prevented either team from piling on goals in the term. Freezer was particularly solid for the OM’s down back, directing traffic with great leadership and continuously showing courage both in the air at ground level. The Trinner’s took a two point lead into the major break. At the beginning of the second half, the OM’s kicked two early goals in succession showing the dominance they proved they were capable of at the start of the match. Roars from the crowd began to change to murmurs as Old Trinity’s supporters sensed the chance of an upset. The impact of both Hamilton and Paule was limited as they were engaged in an intriguing head to head battle at the stoppages and OM’s looked as if they were about to break the game apart. Veteran Ramsden had other ideas though, popping up yet again as Old Trinity’s saviour, booting his fourth for the day. Another new found surge being sensed, the Trinity stars Wildsmith and Hunt found themselves on the end of goals that gave them a five point buffer heading into the deciding quarter. Both teams emerged from their huddles with fire in the belly, not wanting to surrender a game that had such significant prizes at the conclusion – a return to Premier and a grand final berth. The OM’s were the first to strike with the first goal of the term as they took the lead, but it was to no avail as the Old Trinity piled on three goals in quick succession – one of which was Ramsden’s fifth and final goal to take what looked like a match winning 18 point advantage. The OM’s had other ideas though, mounting a charge of their own through risk taking passages of play with precision kicking down the centre of the ground. The Melburnians kicked the next three in the space of five minutes to have the game tied at the 18 minute mark. Old Melburnians captured the lead for the final time with just under 13 minutes remaining, but were unable to hang on. An inspired surge led by Wildsmith and THE AMATEUR FOOTBALLER 2013


Hamilton saw to it that Healy kicked the sealer with precious time remaining as Trinity secured the win and a place in the Grand Final.

Trinity will also need to designate someone to nullify the impact of Karayannis up forward who is having a purple patch of form in the late stages of the season. Both teams will be hungry to capture an elusive Premiership with neither side capturing a flag in over a decade. Old Brighton were brilliant last time, but Old Trinity won’t let that happen so easily again.

@ wrkreed

THE FINAL WORD NODDERS AND ‘HOES COME TO BLOWS FOR FLAG Mazenod Life Member Kevin King was the first club personality I met after taking on the role of Premier C scribe. With his side about to be beaten by Marcellin in Round 1, he told me “Don’t worry, we’ll make the Grand Final”. It seemed like a big call at the time, but its been proven correct, so well done Kevin! Indeed, the grind of the season has sorted wheat from chaff and now we’re left with the irrepressible Mazenod taking on a re-born Old Ivanhoe for the Premier C flag. While promotion has been achieved, neither side will rest on their laurels today with a fiery contest expected to determine the premier at Casey Fields. PRELIMINARY FINAL REVIEW Light rain welcomed Marcellin and Old Ivanhoe as they fought for a spot in the Grand Final. The contest got off to a scrappy start as greasy conditions made passing, let alone scoring, difficult. Adrian Del Monte scored the only goal of the quarter through a boundary line banana after good forward pressure led to a deliberate out-ofbounds call. Despite trailing, Greg Fremantle saw promise from the Eagles competitive first quarter and urged them to keep it going. Nick Gieschen extended the Hoers lead, but the Eagles got under their rivals’ skin with a niggling, physical game plan. A goal from Simon Abrahams and back-to-back majors from Costanzo wrestled the ascendancy back for Marcellin, before a goal from a horrible Eagles turnover got Old Ivanhoe back to within 5 points at half time. With Marcellin’s season on the line, the Eagles lifted but awful goal kicking, with several shots sailing out of bounds on the full, thwarted their efforts. The Hoers did all the damage on the scoreboard as Zac Keane provided a focal point, kicking two goals and setting up another. Zachariah medalist Jarrod Carlson trimmed the margin to 8 points but the Hoers pressure was too much for the Eagles defence as they leaked two late goals to fall behind by 20 at ¾ time. Adrian Del Monte put on a clinic in the last, 6

slotting 4 quick goals from both pockets, bringing his tally to 8 for the match in a best-on-ground performance as his side won by 48. As the siren went the Eagles were left to ponder another year in Premier C while the men from Pine Lodge belted out their song with gusto, tempered by the knowledge that their job is incomplete.

GRAND FINAL PREVIEW Premierships aren’t won in Round 1 as both these sides can attest to. A vengeful Marcellin soundly beat the Nodders that day but the lads from Central Reserve have since taken all before them. Old Ivanhoe had seemingly carried their funk from 2012 into the new season, sitting at 1-3 after four rounds, before winning 14 of their next 16 to march back into Premier B only one season after relegation. History Mazenod’s last Premier C flag came in a 109 point romp against AJAX in 1993, while Old Ivanhoe last saluted at this level in 1995 over next-door neighbours Ivanhoe. The Nodders have waited seven years for a tilt at this flag; the Hoers, just one.

2013 MATCHES Round 4 at Central Reserve: Mazenod 10.13 (73) def Old Ivanhoe 8.10 (58) It was a case of ‘catch me if you can’ as the home side flew out of the gates to lead by a staggering 43 points at quarter time. Injuries to two Nodders just before quarter time turned the game into a dogfight and the visitors finished strongly with former Demon Chris Johnson and Michael Del Monte helping mount a fierce Hoers fightback. However Mazenod steadied to win thanks to the midfield prowess of Dave Chamberlain and excellent defence of Sam Reed and Jace Kelly. Round 10 at Chelsworth Park: Old Ivanhoe 10.8 (68) def by Mazenod 16.12 (108) The writing was on the wall early as the Nodders dominated the midfield and recruit Heath Black kicked several of his 6 goals for the day in the first half to secure a 38 point lead at half time.

Phibbs as the visitors extended their lead in the third quarter. To the Hoers credit they won the last to keep the final margin to 40 points with Dean Heta fantastic across half back and Hayden Heta finding form after time off with injury.

the Marcellin defence a fortnight ago so Geilings and Hondromatidis will have their hands full. Rees Thomas will most likely line up on Dean Heta in a vital 1-on-1 at CHF.

MATCHUPS Maz def v OI fwd: Mazenod’s defence has been superb this year, turning defence into attack consistently. Steve Oldman is a rock at FB, Gus Patti versatile at CHB and Phibbs and Reed are dangerous running across a half back flank. The Hoers danger man is Adrian Del Monte, and the Nodders may look to Tim Wilson to keep him quiet in the back pocket. Old Ivanhoe will use a combination of big men in Hayden Heta, Nick Butler and Zac Keane to win the aerial battles up forward so expect Oldman, Bonner and Patti to match up there.

Thank you to all club contacts that have helped me put together this column every week, your help is much appreciated. Good luck to today’s combatants. We’ll look forward to welcoming Parkdale Vultures, Werribee Districts, Hampton Rovers and Ormond to Premier C in 2014.

Midfield: Zachariah medalist Tim Bourbon leads the Mazenod engine room and is backed by Dave Chamberlain and Josh Cowan to form a formidable unit. They’ll be up against Chris Johnson, Nick Gieschen and Michael Del Monte who have improved throughout the year. The ruck duel between Hoers skipper Hayden Heta and Dave Regan will be influential to who wins in the middle.

PREMIER B GRAND FINAL

10pm Tuesday 17th September

PREMIER GRAND FINAL

1pm Sunday 22nd September

After last weekend’s Premier Second Semi Final at Sportscover Arena, both senior coaches were invited to take part in press conferences upstairs. Happily both the victorious co-coach of Old Xaverians, Nick Bourke and the vanquished coach of St Bedes/ Mentone Tigers Mick Dwyer were happy to take questions from a group of people about the game in a press conference skin to what we see regularly in the AFL. Whilst it was in no way mandatory its great the Nick and Mick can see the benefits in doing this for five minutes after the match to help promote the competition. Most of the talk in the press conference contained the exact same questions and chat you would have with the coaches in the bar post match. We hope to do the press conferences again this weekend at Sportscover Arena. All we need now is for Matt Kempton, Adam Andrews and Simon Williams to be willing to come upstairs for five minutes post match!

MONDERS’ LONG ROAD TO SUCCESS The remaining spot in the grand final and a promotion to Premier C was snatched up by Ormond last weekend as their long road travelled to the big dance has one last song to play. The Monders ended Williamstown CYMS’ second chance at glory, knocking them out of the finals in straight sets. Ormond will now meet the minor premiers Hampton Rovers, well rested after a weekend off, in Saturday’s decider at Trevor Barker Oval. The Monders have upset the Rovers once before, can lightning strike twice? Or will the favourites prevail?

SEMI FINAL REVIEW Prior to the match wet weather loomed at Trevor Barker Oval, but much like Williamstown CYMS it didn’t come to the party early. With no real wind to speak of, Ormond came out with a flourish. The Monders dominated the run of play against the CY’s initially, but it didn’t amount to scoreboard pressure, kicking 1.5 halfway through the first. Matt Robbins steadied his side, kicking the first goal of the game and slotting two more late in the term to continue his form from the week prior. Robbins is proving himself to be a real problem for the opposition this finals series as he remains unfazed by the big moments. Williamstown were held goalless in the first term, as Captain Ben Gray made use of his license to roam which saw him spare in defence and at times in the midfield. Playing spare man back saw him take multiple intercept marks, keeping the CY’s in touching distance, but their forward line suffered as a result with no targets presenting themselves for Williamstown. In the second Williamstown continued to feel the heat of finals pressure, opting for long bombs out of defence which would only come back with interest. Robbins kicked truly after another CY’s turn over, bagging his fourth with a snap from 25m out. Williamstown finally broke their drought with Jason Bencich drilling home their first. Ormond had Williamstown on the ropes, owning the centre clearances and with clean possessions, keeping the opposition’s defence under constant threat. The jittery CY defence was capped off by 16

an undisciplined free from Ben Gray, giving away a comedic and unnecessary free kick in their defensive 50, allowing Henry Jacobs to kick truly. The siren sounded to another Williamstown bomb out of defence, summing up their first half of footy. Ormond led Williamstown 5.6-36 to 1.7-13. Williamstown regrouped at halftime and opened the term with some intensity, something we haven’t seen from the CY’s in their last six quarters. The early onslaught resulted in a rolling maul in Williamstown’s forward half. For the first time Ormond looked nervous, with Williamtown getting chances, but unable were to kick the much needed goal. The Monders recovered and countered with an assault of their own. Jordan Tabakman looked dangerous at half forward, clunking a few and delivering one to Robbins who again kicked straight for his fifth goal. Williamstown were able to get some momentum in the second half, as Josh Vanderloo took a contested, one handed mark and unselfishly handballed it off to Steve Barlow to who ran into an open goal. The CY’s couldn’t follow on as they had the chance for back to back goals in a minute but their goal kicking mishaps were contagious. Both sides struggled in front of goal, but two quick ones late for Ormond extended their lead to 28-points. If Williamstown were to mount a comeback they needed an early goal, and they did exactly that with Vanderloo kicking the first in under a minute. Ormond would deliver a quick reply to douse the CY’s fire, but a captain’s goal from Gray kept that spark alight. Williamstown started to open the game up, utilising run and carry through the middle. Gray kicked his second after an Ormond cardinal sin turnover from a kick out. Williamstown seemingly had the edge. Feeling was brought into an overly bland outing as the crowd lifted as did the players. Robbins went spare man back for the Monders as they were in survival mode, continually being bombarded with pressure. However, Williamstown couldn’t turn opportunities into goals as they kicked six points for the quarter. Ormond recovered midway through the term to hold on for a grand final berth. Williamstown THE AMATEUR FOOTBALLER 2013

were left to think of what could’ve been. Poor kicking, a poor first half and unable to capitalise on the dominance of Stephen Puhar’s in the ruck. It should not take away from the performance of Ormond. Matthew Oaten and Daniel Seehusen both kept Ben Gray’s influence to a minimum, while Matt Robbins stood up when the Monders needed a goal kicker. Sam Mason played possibly his best game for the year through the midfield leading his side to win by 11 points earning a slot in the Grand Final.

GRAND FINAL PREVIEW All Division 1 eyes will be on Trevor Barker Oval on Saturday as local rivals Hampton Rovers play Ormond. Is a week off a benefit or a hindrance to your form? Guy Martyn’s well drilled side will answer those questions at the first bounce, as the minor premiers are the favourites to add to their silverware collection. Ormond have upset Hampton before and their recent performances in the finals increase belief. The correct matchups have never been so crucial, all it takes is one player to get off the chain and the match is lost. Hampton has the ascendancy in the midfield due to their depth, strength and speed.

DIVISION 1

Matthew Oaten, although not highly recognised outside of Ormond, his work against the best forwards in the competition stands out. He’s proven in the last two weeks he can handle the star forwards while at the same time providing quality disposal out of the back half. That being said, Hampton’s multiple forward options will be a worry for the Monders, and expect at least one of them to kick a bag. The 2013 season has been the year of the Rovers thus far and I am predicting it will end much like it started, with Hampton on top. Rovers win by 20. TIP: Hampton Rovers v Ormond

LAST ROUND

WILLIAMSTOWN CYMS v. ORMOND Ormond Williamstown CYMS

Who Ormond send to Division 1 best and fairest winner Leigh Fletcher and how that person plays will help determine if Ormond can snuff out that midfield dominance. The matchup in Ormond’s forward line will be intriguing as Matt Robbins has been in stellar form throughout the finals series. On the other hand Hampton’s Rory Lynch and Jesse Lovig’s defensive partnership has been the best in the division. As Robbins plays mostly the classic full forward out of the goal square role, expect Lynch to get the job.

IT ALL COMES DOWN TO THIS So it is all set up. Yarra Valley and Therry Penola will face each other for the fourth time this year and the stakes could not be any higher. For the Bushrangers, it is a chance to do what very few could do before them, win back-to-back premierships. With victory they will stake their claim as one of the emerging clubs in the VAFA. For the Lions it is a chance to taste premiership glory for the first time since season 2000 and solidify themselves as a league powerhouse.

PRELIMINARY FINAL REVIEW This loomed as somewhat of a “mission impossible” for St Mary’s Salesian. Fresh off their demolition of Old Eltham in the 1st Semi last week, the Saints faced a whole new challenge in the prelim. Therry Penola stinging after a defeat is a different proposition than an injury riddled Old Eltham. The match went along as scripted, the Lions held the Saints at arm’s length for the first half and took an 11 point lead into half time. Jarrod Bannister was proving a handful and ended the match with seven, with support from Corey with three. Ten goals to five after half-time told the story but to the Saints credit they fought out to the end but were ultimately out-classed. The Lions were run-away winners by 42 points and set up an epic Grand Final meeting with Yarra Valley. For the Saints they can look back on 2013 with positivity and hope for the future. They erased thoughts about their form away from home and with a youthful playing list could take the next step in 2014.

GRAND FINAL PREVIEW The Lions will surely still be stinging from their semi-final loss to Yarra Valley. A game the Lions were expected to win, but as history tells us, in finals football, expect the unexpected. On that day the Bushrangers out pressured and out worked the Lions around the ball for a half of football, and ultimately ran out deserved 28 point winners. Now, from a week off, the Bushrangers must bring that same manic pressure for the full 120 minutes to once again hold the cup aloft. In the back of 18

the Bushrangers’ minds will be the last quarter of that semi-final. In that quarter the Bushrangers were held goalless and watched Therry bang on four unanswered goals, three coming from Corey Bannister. One could take the view that Yarra Valley were 50 odd points up, that the sting was out of the game and the Lions capitalised. On the other hand a team never wants to be held goalless in any quarter, especially during a final. The week off may have come at the perfect time for Yarra Valley who will want to hit this Saturday primed to play their best football of the year. For Therry Penola they hope that their semifinal performance was an aberration and come into this game full of momentum. They have the class in the key posts and their fate looks to rest on the shoulders of the Bannister brothers. After contributing a mere four goals between them in the semi-final loss they returned to form last week with a bang. Against St Mary’s they slotted 10 goals between them, with Jarrod starring with seven. Coming off his worst performance for the year, Jarrod could be heralded a premiership hero. Besides kicking goals, the Bannisters and the other Lions’ forwards must make defenders such as Trend and Pagan accountable. In the semi it seemed forward forays were Bannisters or bust and the Lions were way too predictable. This allowed arguably the best two half-backs in Division 2 to sag off their opponents and run off at will. The focus needs to be on isolating the Bushrangers defenders and creating one-on-one contests coupled with fierce forwardhalf pressure. This is what will be drilled into the Lions forwards. Premierships though, are built around a solid defence and it is in the back half where the Lions were really opened up. They failed to get the match-ups right and when they did it was too late. Yeo looked dangerous early and if not for some wayward kicking would have ended with more than three goals. It was the Bushrangers small to medium forwards that did the damage in the third quarter. If they weren’t crumbing goals they were THE AMATEUR FOOTBALLER 2013

tackling, chasing, harassing and pressuring the Therry defenders and capitalising on turnovers. Cooler heads are needed down back for the Lions this time around and this must start from their cornerstone, Jarrod Egglestone. An intriguing duel with Ryan Amos awaits, in the semi the points went to the Bushranger, but don’t count on that happening twice. In the semi final it was a case of system beating talent, but teams can learn more from losing than they do from winning. The test for Therry Penola will be if they have in fact made the changes from their loss that will equate to victory. For Yarra Valley they may well have the Lions’ number, but grand final day is a different story. It is not won purely on system but in the end it comes down to attitude and mental application. A “fight to the death” mentality is needed for 120 minutes of football. A game where a mere act can determine victory or defeat, a question of who will go harder for longer and which team’s will and desire to be the best is strongest. TIP: Therry Penola by 6 points

A TALE OF TWO SUBURBS, A STORY FOR YOUR GRANDKIDS And the Lord himself said ‘so it shall be; two district rivals to play off in the final to end all finals. I call it the GRAND FINAL.’ Elsternwick, located in Melbourne’s southeast with a vast variety of cultures, cafes and establishments including the famous Daily Planet (don’t ask questions if you don’t know what goes down behind its heavy doors) within its borders will face Kew, one of the most densely populated suburbs in Melbourne’s east with a mixture of both Melbourne’s elite private schools and Melbourne’s most intriguing characters. They bid farewell to Division 3 with plenty of hope and excitement but surely a little trepidation. In round 1, Elsternwick beat Richmond Central by 20 points with Aaron Thornton, the competition’s leading goal kicker booting 12. From that point on Elsternwick has had a near faultless season, beating every side except Aquinas this season and remain the second highest scoring side in the competition. They finished 3rd on the ladder after the regular season. Kew has not a lost a game since Round 10 when they went down to Elsternwick and no such side has proven their bogey side, managing to beat every side in the competition. Three of their four sides will be participating in Grand Finals come Sunday. A magnificent effort from a club that appeared set to be dispatched into the dustbin of history several years ago. Elsternwick kicked 9 2nd half goals to UHS-VU’s 3 to claim a famous victory and send the ‘Wickers up to Division 2. On a hugely disappointing afternoon for UHS-VU whereupon they lost both their preliminary finals, Elsternwick’s spread of goal kickers and experienced midfielders proved too potent. Rhys Kirk kicked 4 and Ben Atherton excelled in the midfield for UHS-VU however the side couldn’t match Elsternwick’s sense of urgency throughout the second half. A dampener for Elsternwick was the nasty clash in the middle which saw Declan Healy stretchered off with the green whistle in tow. Aaron Thornton and Scott Grace kicked 3 each as Ashley Quinn

20

and Ryan White continued their form from last week with impressive outings. UHS-VU has had a truly wonderful season and although they will view it as a failure, I have no doubt they will win promotion next season. Kew ran onto Central Reserve with one name on their mind. Dimitri Dimakoplous. For many of the Kew lads, the effort to actually pronounce the sterling competitor’s name was too much to handle. However their effort to reduce his impact on the contest was colossal. It was a contest that ebbed and flowed throughout the day. Whilst the scoreboard shows that Kew ran out 37 point winners, for much of the day it was tightly contested. Michael Cochrane yet again dominated down back for the Bears as the twin towers (Allman and Brazzale) kicked 7 between them. For the defeated SFX side, Chris Smith was simply brilliant, kicking 3 incredible goals and keeping his team in the contest for much of the day. The lack of depth ended up being the difference on the day and it will be viewed as paramount to get a few more quality players into the squad if SFX desire to push one rung further up the table next season.

GRAND FINAL PREVIEW The last time Elsternwick won a senior flag was in 2005 when they defeated St Marys in Division 4. For the Kew Bears it has been 34 long and thirsty years in the wilderness without a senior premiership. Both Elsternwick’s Co-coaches Gary Rosewarne and Dennis Grace and Kew coach Ian Aitken deserve full credit for leading their sides to grand final berths, however now it is a chance for the players to fulfil their own destiny. Come 2.30PM at Ted Ajani, the distractions of a morning of potential Grand Final glory will be finished for Kew and the main drawcard will be open for business. Both Elsternwick and Kew have very solid attacking records this season and will back in their respective forward lines. Brazzale and

Allman have kicked over 100 goals between them this season, whilst Thornton has booted 80 with Scott Grace and the injured Justin Hunter kicking 30 and 34 respectively. On this fact alone it goes without saying that this game will be won by the better defensive unit. However, the most important matchup on the field on Sunday will be between the ruckmen. Paul Brough and James Convery are the two most dominant ruckmen in the competition and it will certainly be a fascinating one on one tussle. Elsternwick has conceded over 200 points more than Kew this season however I don’t think this is a key statistic. A more relevant statistic is that on the 7 occasions Elsternwick have been kept under 100 points, they have only managed to win 2 of those games. Coincidentally one of those two occasions was against Kew where they had 11 more scoring shots. In fact both of their outings against Kew saw them have more shots on goal

DIVISION 3

My verdict on the matter is slightly irrelevant really. As many of you know, I am affiliated with one of the sides who will be playing on the weekend. I am a very proud member of that football side but I am also very proud to have enjoyed the season writing for this division. It has been an absolute pleasure and I wish you all well for a wonderful September. For what it is worth, it will come down to a couple of kicks. I am tipping Kew by 6 points. Let’s just hope for a good game of football and plenty of supporters at the ground. Long live finals footy! TIP: Kew v Elsternwick

than the opposition which could highlight a Kew weakness against ferociously attacking sides. I doubt either side will consciously change their game style. They’ve both had outstanding seasons with a bunch of talented players. Now it comes down to 120 minutes of gut busting footy.

DIVISION 4

Domenic Favata

AND THEN THERE WERE TWO... Who would have thought? The Northern Blues first year in senior football, have made a grand final after finishing in sixth place on the ladder. The giant-killing Blues have knocked off minorpremiers the Hawks and third placed finisher West Brunswick along the way and now find themselves pitted against the Eley Park Sharks. The Sharks have gone about their business very quietly, disposing of the Bulls last week and then fighting off Hawthorn to seal their place in the Grand Final. Both sides have also secured promotion to Division 3. The first of the preliminary finals saw Eley Park up against the Hawks, reeling after an unexpected loss in the first week of the finals. Both sides brought a physical brand of footy to the table, which resulted in a hotly contested game for all four quarters. Both sides traded early blows with neither able to secure the knockout punch, but the Sharks wouldn’t be denied their heavyweight status with a dominant last quarter. The Sharks got away to a four goal lead in the last term thanks to some brilliance from Viola, Peacock and Bahnsen (4 goals), and managed to hold on despite a late revival from the Hawks. For the Hawks, player of the year and Meehan Medallist David Tremewen was one of their best performed players, but his heroics weren’t enough to see the minor premiers avoid being knocked out in straight sets. So ends a disappointing September for the Hawks which promised so much. The second of the preliminary finals saw the giant-killing Blues up against the Pies, who had a solid outing against the Bulldogs in the first week of the finals. Both sides were hard to split in their clashes throughout the home and away season, and so this game held much promise. The less experienced Blues got off to a blistering start, and seemed to be playing freely without a weight of expectation. They were certainly not intimidated by the occasion. The Blues led by six goals at the main break after a dominant first half, with their stoppage work and defensive cover key highlights, but two late 22

@DomFavata injuries in the half left them with a depleted bench for the remainder of the match. The Pies came out with much more intent in the second half, playing more like the side that finished third on the ladder and bringing a more physical approach to the game. The Blues were rattled, the Pies had eaten up their lead and got within six points in the last quarter. However, a magnificent running goal from Blues captain Deal Calcedo restored the ascendancy in the last quarter, with the Blues wrestling back the momentum and holding on for a well deserved win. Damon Marcon kicked five goals for the Blues, while Parkes and Phelan were excellent around the stoppages. For the Pies who will rue a slow start to the game, Holmes was good again with three goals, while Tisdale and Baker were resolute in defeat. A missed opportunity perhaps. Who would of thought, the Blues in their first year in senior footy have sealed a place in the Grand Final alongside one of the Division’s heavyweights in Eley Park. Having secured promotion, the Blues will have nothing to lose (other than a Premiership of course), which makes them a dangerous proposition for the Sharks. However this young club craves the ultimate success having missed out again at U19 level, a senior premiership would provide ample compensation. In the first year of the final six, the romance of a side winning a premiership from 6th cannot be ignored. However, the Sharks finished equal top for good reason, they have been a dynamic performer for much of the season and deserve favouritism going into the match. The Sharks are chasing a first flag in more than a decade and having missed out on making a grand final last year will want to ensure promotion can be celebrated with a premiership. Whilst no one – save Sharks supporters – would begrudge a fairytale Northern Blues premiership; season form, previous encounters and matching up squads should see the Sharks have a little too much class for the Blues who may run out of gas come Grand Final day. Whatever the result, Ted Ajani Reserve this Saturday afternoon will see history made in one shape or form. Good luck to both sides. MY TIP: Sharks by 20 points. THE AMATEUR FOOTBALLER 2013

CLUB WAREHOUSE RISING STAR 2013 RISING STAR WINNER – CHRIS MANGONI – ST BEDES/MENTONE TIGERS Chris Mangoni has made a huge impact at St Bedes/Mentone Tigers and the VAFA in his first season in Premier Section football. The former Mazenod student has fitted in at the Tigers like a glove, and from Round 1 has been a valuable member of the team to play 15 of our 18 home and away matches averaging better than a goal a game playing mostly from the midfield. Chris played in the Tigers’ 2nd Semi Final loss last weekend and will be a key part of the preliminary final team this week. Whether playing down back, up forward, or running through the midfield, his ability to create space, and win the ball is second to none, and has been a great catalyst in many of his side’s victories during the season. Chris was also selected as a worthy representative in this year’s VAFA Under 19 side that played against AFL Victoria Country at the Junction Oval. Named amongst the best, Chris was instrumental in the stirring victory over the Country U19s. Chris also managed to play a couple of VFL Games with Collingwood impressing all at that level with his attack on the football. Popular with his peers, Chris has settled well into the culture of St Bedes/Mentone Tigers and amateur football - a worthy winner of the VAFA Club Warehouse Rising Star Award for 2013. A season that has seen a determined young man mature into a fine individual both on and off the field. * to be eligible for the club Warehouse Rising Star, a player must be born no earlier than 1992 and playing his first full season of senior football.

Best – Sherman, Haynes, Collins, Atkins, Matulick, Spence (B) and Roach, B Holst, Blumfield, Hosking, Fry, Shinkfield (C).

U19 Premier — with Olivia Crowe After a long, fiercely contested season and two weeks of finals there are now two teams left standing, Old Xaverians and St Bede’s/Mentone Tigers. Both clubs supporters will be out in force to cheer on their side at Trevor Barker Oval on Sunday.

Old Xaverians finished top of the ladder after the regular season with 17 wins and 1 loss and a fantastic percentage of 262.38%. Central Reserve hosted the 2nd Semi Final that saw Old Xaverians advance to the Grand Final with a solid win over fellow Grand Finalist the Tigers. In a closely fought contest it was Xavs Jeans, Barry, Ongarello, Stratford, Lachal and Williams who ended up being the difference. Whilst straight kicking from Lachal 4, Cain 3, Silk 2 and 2013 Sharpshooter Healey 2 also proved to be crucial in the win.

@Liv_Crowe St Bedes finished in 2nd place after the home and away season with 15 wins and 3 losses but they were forced to cash their double chance after a wayward kicking performance saw them go down to Xavs in the 2nd Semi Final. As a result their better players had to stand up in their Preliminary Final against St Bernards. Nicoll, Whalebone, Bower, Hard and Gogerly were the standouts and were the key to the Tigers progressing through to the Grand Final. Whilst up forward Jeans, Dalzotto and Hoy proved the Tigers can kick accurately.

With both sides in good form and without injury concerns this match has the makings of a classic. If St Bedes can kick straight Xavs may have a few headaches but you just feel Xavs will find something and prevail as they have been the strongest all year. Good luck to both clubs players and supporters. TIP: Xavs by 18 points.

U19 Section 2 with Lewis Emmerson @LewisEmmerson Jubilation and heartbreak The standouts for Werribee were both defenders. were the conflicting emotions Matthew Fitzpatrick intercepted countless marks shared by Werribee and while Brayden Monk ran the ball tirelessly from Parkdale Vultures respectively the backline. Chris Welch was at his best up after the final siren sounded forward for the Vultures, but that was not enough on Saturday afternoon. to clinch victory. Werribee triumphed over The game was the perfect example of a nail Parkdale by 4 points. biting thriller. The winner was never certain until the dying seconds where Werribee put through a This week Werribee take on a rested Fitzroy in the snapped goal from the tip of the goal square to Grand Final at Trevor Barker Oval on Sunday. The put them up by 4 points with less than 20 seconds Tigers will be up and about after their win but to play. As you would expect the goal struck Fitzroy have met every challenge this year. The Parkdale hearts like a painfully sharp dagger as all Roys to win another close one. Werribee players converged on each other with wild celebration. TIP: Fitzroy v Werribee

U19 Section 3 with Darren Dawson —

When it comes to finals footy, they are two words which any top-placed favourite dreads being associated with: straight sets. Unfortunately for the Northern Blues, this was the fate which befell them last Saturday as they were ruthlessly put to the sword by Whitefriars. Just three weeks ago, the Blues finished the home and away season on top of the ladder, four games clear of second. Now they are out. From the outset, the Friars were all over the Blues, exhibiting an uncompromising, tough, finals-style game, which totally overwhelmed their opponents. Defence

@smokiedawson

wins finals, and the miserly Friars backline did not allow the Blues a goal until the final term. To the final game of the season. AJAX have had a week to rest and prepare for the big one. They will go in as deserved favourites, particularly as they defeated the Friars only three weeks ago – albeit by only 9 points. However, I am a big believer in momentum and am inclined to think that things are falling into place for Whitefriars. Led by Mitch Malt, who tellingly did not play in the previous encounter, I am tipping the Friars to win by 8 points. Good luck to all participants. I am looking forward to a thrilling match. TIP: Whitefriars to beat Ajax.

U19 North with Nick Duxson @nicholasjduxson St Mary’s Salesian are through The decider… sees St Mary’s come up against to the Grand Final with a Old Ivanhoe, fresh from a week’s break. The ‘Hoes 31-point victory over Ivanhoe and Saints are locked at one win apiece in 2013, St Mary’s getting up by 13 points in May and Old at Bill Lawry Oval. Ivanhoe by three kicks a month later. But it was the Magpies who kick-started proceedings with Ted Ajani Reserve will play host to what’s set to be a thriller between two evenly matched teams this the first three goals, before the Saints hit back to Saturday morning. Old Ivanhoe have conceded take a narrow lead into half time. on average only 48 points per game this year,

Blackmoore-Moore (four goals) and Ring (three goals) posed a threat up forward for Ivanhoe, but the Saints extended their lead further at three quarter time and closed the game out. Gook kicked four for St Mary’s, while equal competition B&F Kyle Buchanan chipped in two. U19 South with Nick Duxson @nicholasjduxson Who can stop Oakleigh? That is the big question after Beaumaris had their run cut short in a thriller last Sunday morning.

St Bedes/Mentone are through to the decider, hanging on to win by a goal after leading by four majors at the main break. Lay was the Tigers’ only multiple goal-kicker with 2, with Heywood and Kinsey both starring, while league B&F Adam Hardeman couldn’t quite drag his team over the line. It’s a daunting task ahead for St Bedes/ Mentone, as they face the Krushers on Saturday at Trevor Barker Oval. Oakleigh smashed the Tigers to the tune of 14 goals in the first week of finals, with Aaron Cloke THE AMATEUR FOOTBALLER 2013

while St Mary’s are the #1 ranked attacking side with an average of 20 goals per game. Fittingly the two tied B&F winners, Buchanan and Max Kirwan will be opposite sides… could one of them prove the difference? TIP: Old Ivanhoe v St Mary’s Salesian

adding six more to the ton of goals he booted in the home-and-away season. But the underdogs will look back to Round 2, when they kept the minor premiers to just six goals on their way to a 43-point win. The Tigers will need to find avenues in front of goal, with only two players passing 20, and leading goal-kicker Jordan Young (39) will be a focal point up forward. In contrast, Oakleigh have four players with more than 20, with Zach Pearce-Thomas (43) yet to be held goalless this year. Oakleigh have been the form side all season, but can the Tigers pull off a massive upset? TIP: Oakleigh v St Bedes/Mentone Tigers 45

UMPIRES

Steve McCarthy & Leah Gallagher

@VAFAUA

Proudly supported by

East Malvern Community Bank®Branch 300 Waverley Road, East Malvern, phone 9563 6044

THIS IS IT!! GRAND FINALS For most sections this is the day that all those training sessions in the heat of pre-season and the slog of the cold training nights come to fruition. For one team, it will hold the cup aloft and the other team will wonder what if, for both of those teams may you leave nothing in the sheds put it all on the line and after 120 minutes may it be you that holds the holy grail. For us umpires this will be a rewarding time for all the hard work that has happened this year, this is the grand final you have earned and if not, then the only one that can change that is you. Our depth and quality as an umpiring group is quite evident when we consider the large number of umpires who missed out. Amongst all the backslapping this weekend there is also disappointment for many. Don’t be disillusioned, just come back in 2014 and have another crack! FINAL TRADITIONS Some traditions go by the wayside and some stay on for years, one such tradition has been the finals hair cut by some field umpires and it was good to see that former VAFAUA umpires now running in the AFL have carried this on. Both Simon Meredith and Chris Donlon in last week finals appearances wore nicely cut hair, trimmed up perfectly for finals time showing their support to the VAFA. Let’s hope the boys do well this year and progress further into the finals campaign.

457 With all the recent changes to visas do the VAFA need to check the work permit of one of their long term staff? Based on an article in this publication last week it would appear that Brian MacGoodman has only recently received Australian citizenship after the Scot has lived here all his life. He’s expected to wear a kilt to the Woodrow count next week.

PREMIER GRAND FINAL DAY Don’t forget to keep Premier Grand Final Day (Saturday 21 September 2013) free. The traditional Premier GF lunch will kick off at 11:30am. Cost is $35 and includes entry to the ground, two course meal and a free drink! Tables are filling fast! More details to be announced shortly including a guest speaker. Following the Grand Final there will be presentations to the Premier Grand Final Umpires, cheap drinks, a free BBQ (thanks to Harris Family Butchers), a DJ and possibly an AFL Preliminary Final on the big screen. We want to see all of the VAFAUA community at the rooms to celebrate a great 2013!

NAPOLI A FIELD UMPIRE? Last week in the Amateur Footballer, did anyone else pick up that 5 years ago Dom Napoli umpired a C section Preliminary in the field. Geoff Reilley’s column “Retrospective” had Dom umpiring in the field with Luke Holmes, great effort and even better was that in the same game Clayton Evans did the boundary and Russell Davidson was in the goals. Gee Rusty, we’d like to have known the mistake you did in the previous week to drop you into the goals? Maybe it’s a sign of the future.

THIS IS IT! So this is it. After 21 rounds of season 2013 it all comes down to this, a grand final between the two best sides all year in Kew and Werribee Tigers. Last weekend saw a fantastic game of football in the preliminary final between Werribee and Point Cook with only a single point separating both sides by the games end, with the Tigers scraping home. It was neck and neck for most of the game with the lead changing numerous times between both sides. The last quarter was a thriller as both sides scoring well and the pressure was outstanding from both teams. Despite Point Cook’s ability to outscore their opponents in the last it just wasn’t enough to get over the line to earn a grand final berth. The one point defeat a shattering end to their season. Werribee’s Tim Malia had a day out with four and best a field honours, while Mason Kip kicked four for the Bulldogs.

As we reach the Grand Final, what a game it will be, with both sides deserving this opportunity after successful seasons. Kew has clearly been the dominant side all year (with an undefeated winning streak) with the Tigers only losing four matches and cementing second spot on the ladder. It should be a great match and one in which Kew should continue on from their perfect season by bringing home the premiership cup. Congratulations to all sides on a great year in the section, it has been a pleasure to be the scribe and I wish you all the best for 2014. TIPS: Kew v Werribee Tigers
