The five-a-side final action was hot. 176339

The inaugural summer five-a-side season finished with two thrilling finals at the Monbulk Rangers Soccer Club.
In Group 1, winter team mates faced off in the two under-12 teams, the Lions and the Pumas.
The Pumas were held to a 1-1 draw at half-time, but ran out winners 4-1 after a few quick goals to Darcy Blackman.
In Group 2, the under-14s Cubs turned the tables on the under-13s Outlaws which had beaten them earlier in the season, and won.
Club president, Sam Knight, congratulated all the 120 players and 19 teams who took part in the first season of small-sided games at the new pitch, and thanked co-ordinator Tony Briggs for his efforts in getting the competition up and running.
Mr Briggs said the five-a-side had been a great success.
Monbulk Rangers plan to expand the competition next September and invite other clubs to participate.
