MONBULK JUNIOR FOOTBALL
After the weekend off because of the school holidays, there were many excited kids ready and raring to play.
As the season progresses with only a few rounds left, teams are starting to play to coach’s instructions and putting together four-quarter games.
Another mixed bag of successes on the field and many cold extremities as the day started early for a couple of the teams.

After a slow start, the team put together their best three quarters of the year. The manning up and pressure was fantastic. The team played in front of their opponent and linked together some terrific passages.
