Division 1 had the only change to the finals fixture as Prahran Assumption swapped places with Whitefriars in the four. 
Prahran Assumption beat Old Geelong at Como Park by 56 points to complete their end of the deal. All Two Blues eyes were checking the live scores to check to see if Hampton Rovers had managed to do what was required. 
The Rovers did the Two Blues a favour by defeating Whitefriars by the same margin of 56 points. The Rovers who for so long have been waiting for finals now have it all ahead of them. 
Another haul of 10 goals from Robertson helped Old Mentonians end their season on a high against Bulleen Templestowe with a 26 point win. The Bullants will be pleased to extend their stay in Division 1 beyond the solitary season they achieved last time they were promoted. 
Matt Robbins kicked five goals for Ormond on the way to a 99 point defeat of MHSOB. The loss was an ugly way for the Unicorns to depart Division 1 considering they have been decimated by injury and were very competitive with the good teams at times this year. 
In what might be some sort of record, Williamstown CYMS had 15 out of their 22 players kick a goal against a hapless Glen Eira by 197 points. John (6) and J. Gray (5) were on the end of most of the CY’s 33 goals. 
The interest in Division 2 was at the other end of the ladder and who would go down? Monash Gryphons are the unlucky club that will join Emmaus St Leo’s in Division 3 next year. 
The Animals ended hopes of the Gryphons and made their end of season celebrations a little more enjoyable as they defeated Monash by 64 points. McDouggal’s five goals were all cheered as equally as the 10 other Animals players that booted a mjor.
Ivanhoe are the fortunate survivors despite having a 103 point loss to the table topping Therry Penola. Jarrod Bannister kicked another five goals to tie the goal kicking with his brother Corey on 77 each for the regular season. Corey managed 4 goals today but both would give up those accolades for a premiership together. 
Yarra Valley suggested that it might be a two horse race in the section after they thrashed fellow finalist St Mary’s Salesian by 101 points. Yeo kicked 6 and Beal 5 as the Bushrangers are looking good to go back to back. 
Old Eltham may have been resting a few but you should never flirt with form on the eve of finals. St Johns eon by 10 goals despite Turner’s five goals for the Turtles. 
In the other game, Old Paradians (Giddings 5) ended their season on a high defeating South Melbourne Districts by 28 points. 
In Division 3 there were no changes the the six as Aquinas defeated Swinburned Uni by 23 points to secure finals action. Williams kicked 6 goals for the Bloods who will be a tough first opponent for Kew. 
La Trobe Uni finished seventh, but never were in the running to pinch Aquinas’ spot in the six as they went down to St Francis Xavier by 32 points. 
Richmond Central tuned up for finals with a solid five goal win over Power House. Power House end their season in a better position than last year and can only build on this for 2014. 
Aaron Thornton kicked 6 and Convery five as Elsternwick ended Old Westbourne’s year of discontent with a 101 point loss. 
UHS-VU were only just able to hold on to defeat Albert Park by 3 points in the closest margin of the day across all sections. 
Top side Kew finished a very promising home and away season with a 55 point win down at South Mornington. The Bears now need to start their season again if they are to taste the ultimate glory for the first time at senior level in 34 years. 
Finals: Kew v Aquinas, UHS-VU v Richmond Central, Elsternwick v St Francis Xavier
In Division 4 Point Cook confirmed it wasn’t to be the year of the Dragon as the Bulldogs defeated Dragons by 65 points. 
Seven goals from Dan Penny wasn’t enough for Box Hill North as they ended their season with a 79 point loss to Hawthorn. The Hawks tuned up for finals with both Brown and White (don’t you wish it was ‘Gold’) kicking 5 goals each. 
Pat Notaro kicked 7 goals of his own in a winning North Brunswick side. The Bulls won by 96 points over Manningham Cobras. 
Eley Park Sharks surprisingly only defeated Mt Lilydale by 19 points to finish the season in second place behind the Hawks. 
West Brunswick were 27 points better than Northern Blues in both sides final chance to tinker things before finals next week. 
Finals: Hawthorn v Northern Blues, Eley Park Sharks v North Brunswick, West Brunswick v Point Cook. 
*In other news Mitchell Sweeney (UHS-VU) became the only player in the VAFA to reach the 100 goal milestone this year in the home and away season. Congratulations to Mitchell and good luck in the finals.
