Reserves Chase Back-To-Back Premierships


Prahran Assumption Reserves will play the VAFA Division 1 preliminary final v Kew at 11.30 am Saturday September 5 at Waverly Oval, venue now 

The Two Blues opened its finals series defence of last year's premiership with a four point first semi-final win in a dour battle with St Mary's Salesian on Saturday.

It was far from pretty with a swirling cross breeze and at times drizzling rain making conditions difficult. 

For the Two Blues it was a win playing 'ugly' - a last quarter arm wrestle producing just one goal, what turned out to be the match winner when Michael Bremner, the premier onballer of thematch, marked courageously and handball to Michael Chilton who goaled on the run. 

Goals were like gold which made the three goal return from forward pocket Jon Rice priceless.

PRAHRAN ASSUMPTION 2-2 3-4 5-10 6-13 (49) 

ST MARY'S SALESIAN 1-2 3-4 6-7 6-9 (45). 

Goals: Rice 3, Chilton 2, Cupples
