McHugh also made valuable contributions with their goals. Old Yarra Cobras fought hard throughout the game, but they couldn’t match Aquinas’ intensity. P. Cula-Reid, A. Murray, and T. Limburg scored their team’s goals.

Monash Blues demonstrated their dominance with a convincing victory over Richmond Central. Monash controlled the game from the beginning, building a solid lead and maintaining their advantage until the final siren.

Draffin and N. Newman led the scoring for Monash, each contributing a goal. A. Purtill, S. Bingham, and A. Hansen played pivotal roles in their team’s success, delivering standout performances.
