OLD TRINITY GO LONG WAY TO WIN FLAG

Posted on - Latest News

Old Trinity triumphed over University Blues to become U19 Section 2 Premiers in front of a large crowd at Bulleen Park. The game was well and truly in the balance at the final change with the margin only 14 points in Trinity’s favour. But a blistering last quarter surge from Old Trinity saw them pull off a 47-point win. 
University Blues boasted the competition’s two top goal scorers, Daniel Batarilo and Will Blakey, and both lived up to their goal kicking reputation with 5 and 3 respectively. Unfortunately, they were without help as Old Trinity’s backline held firm. 
It was a different story for the Trinity forward line with 9 different goal kickers. Alex Polidoros continued his amazing finals run with six goals for the second consecutive week as he claimed the best on ground medal. After kicking only one goal all year, Tom Kerkvliet, snagged four as he picked a good a time as any to show his goal kicking capabilities. 
After finishing third, without the double chance, not many would have predicted how far Old Trinity would come. It’s a miraculous effort from a very talented group. Thanks again to all teams for reading and having another great season of U19 footy.
