Two Flags at the Bear Cave
Last Saturday, 2️ Grand Finals and 2 premiership cups were added to the cabinet in what was a brilliant day for our footy club.
The sun shone brightly on Box Hill City Oval and the Kew faithful turned out in great numbers to support our boys, all of whom are extremely grateful for your support throughout the entire 2019 season.
Our Unders were a little sluggish out of the blocks against St Bernard’s, and found themselves a couple of goals down early in the match, but that wasn’t to last long as they flicked the switch midway through the second quarter, blitzing the Snowdogs to enjoy a 4 goal lead at the main break.
From then on it was all about consolidation, as we shut the boys from the west out of the game and master-coach Ian “Beaser” Aitken impressively coached his 5th Kew FC premiership.
Big congratulations to Matty O’Dicho who was awarded Best on Ground honours.
The Ressies were in a tight tussle from the word go with neither side giving an inch in a high pressure, high intensity affair. At each break only a few points separated the two sides with the Pirates holding a 2 point ascendency at the final change of ends.
But in the last quarter it was all the Bears as our fitter side stepped it up a gear and ran over the top of the Old Boys side, once again kicking 5️ goals to 1 in the last quarter, just as they did in the Semi.
Well done to Taylor McKenzie who took out the Best on Ground medal.
