Preliminary final – nail-biting win against La Trobe Uni

Despite having 9 less scoring shots, the Vultures prevailed on Saturday in our Preliminary final at Garvey Oval, Bundoora.  A close contest with only a couple of goals separating the 2 teams throughout the game.  La Trobe took a 4 point lead at quarter time but more accurate kicking by UHS-VU put us 12 points up at half-time.  The second half saw the Trobers dominate the play and the scoreboard.  The Vultures could only manage 3 behinds in the 3rd quarter to be down 1 point at the final break.

In the last quarter, La Trobe continued to pepper the goals, scoring 2 goals and 6 behinds to take a 6 point lead late in the quarter.  But a quick transition in play late in the  quarter resulted in a Mitchell Sweeney set shot and goal to square the score.  Shortly after, a Dicko snap that landed almost on the goal line and within reach of a La Trobe defender somehow managed to bounce the right way for the Vultures to regain the lead for the quarter and the game!  Great effort boys!

Final score:  UHS-VU 9 – 6- 60 defeated La Trobe Uni 6 -18 -54
