PAFC Newsletter 7, 2021
AWAY games are often treacherous for visiting teams in VAFA football and so it has proved for Prahran Assumption in visits to Therry Penola’s Oak Park territory in recent years.
Wins at the venue have been rare indeed for the Two Blues and while Therry Penola copped an 89 point thrashing at home last Saturday it was at the hands of undefeated Old Camberwell.
You can bank on a much more competitive showing on Saturday.
These matches always have added spice on field as our immediate past coach Ash Mills was a former Therry Penola player.
By a quirk of the draw after five rounds the Two Blues are yet to meet any of the top three teams so it is essential they keep defeating teams below them on the ladder such as Therry Penola.
Wins by sizeable margins in the Seniors and Reserves at home last Saturday despite a growing list of injuries leaves the Seniors fourth on the ladder and the Reserves seventh.
