Across Ammo Land medallions and handkerchiefs were handed in equal measure as sides at all levels played their final games of 2012. Whilst for others, there are still commitments on Tuesday, Thursday and next weekend. 
The Premier B Preliminary Final was won by Beaumaris by 29 points over St Kevins Sportscover Arena this afternoon. Many believe that this game is the hardest to win in amateur footy, the prize is enormous, promotion to Premier Section and a chance to play for a premiership next week. For Beaumaris, it is their highest ever finish in the VAFA. Whilst for St Kevins they repeated recent history with another straight sets exit.
The Premier C Grand Final will be a rematch of the second Semi Final after Fitzroy kicked away in the second half to defeat Mazenod by 61 points at Trevor Barker Oval. The Roys will return there next weekend with their three seniot sides all playing for premiership glory. Mazenod had a horror day on the injury front and will be back better for their finals run in 2013. 
The first senior premiership in 2012 was decided at Scammell Reserve as South Mornington capped off a marvellous year to salute over Swinburne Uni to win the Division 4 Premiership by 15 points. The Tigers trailed the Razorbacks at every change but kicked seven goals to three in the final term to seal the Club’s first VAFA Premiership. 
At Central Reserve a large crowd watched De La Salle and Old Xaverians battle it out for the U19 Premier Flag. De La held sway for most the day but Xavs never went away. After a tense 10 minutes in the final term De La broke free and ended up kicking six goals to two to win by 40 points. 
The U19 Section 2 Grand Final was won handsomely by Old Brighton as they had the game sewn up by half time against Caulfield Grammarians. It was always going to be tough for the Fields who had won their way through to the decider from fourth spot. Old Brighton’s form this season saw them go in as heavy favourites and they lived up to their billing to win by a final margin of 132 points. 
Parkdale Vultures won the U19 South Premiership at Central Reserve defeating De La Salle Gold 18.6.114 to 10.9.69. Lewis Emmerson won the Jon Simpson Medal for his seven-goal best on the ground performance. 
Tomorrow the action continues at Sportscover Arena in the Premier Preliminary Final between Old Xaverians and De La Salle, whilst there are premiership deciders in Division 1 and 2 and a Preliminary Final in Division 3.
