Monbulk Junior Football Club had its final away game in a season filled with Monbulk Hawks team spirit, grit and determination.

The sides hope to put it all together as they fight their way to the finals flag.


The side was up against a very tough Healesville team.

The kids played a tough match but came off the field with their heads held high.

Best: Arley, Jack, Kale, Ava, Hudson.


This match was a fantastic finish to a great season.

The group really took it up to a strong Healesville side, fought out every contest, found their players and again created scoring chances.

Best: Wil, Ben, Kelly, Robert, Charlie.


Upwey 6.5.41 d Monbulk 3.0.18

It was a close contest for the first three quarters.

The Hawks were unable to hold out and the strong wind didn’t help.

Best: Josh S, Kit, Hamish, Xavier.


Healesville 9.3.57 d Monbulk 3.2.20

The team was up against a very good opposition, which got on top of the Hawks in the first half.

Monbulk had to dig deep and came out and evened out the second half.

Best: Oscar, Tim, Jacob, Harry, Abel.

Under-14 Blue

Monbulk 3.6.24 d Healesville 2.4.16

The team focused on this game and not on next week.

The solid four-quarter performance was a good way to enter the finals campaign.

Best: Nick T, Jake M, Nathan S, Logan B.

Under-14 Green

Emerald 14.9.93 d Monbulk 0.0.0

After a spray at quarter time the boys fired up.

They pride themselves on effort, intensity and tackling and all those things shone through.

Best: Harry, Moe, Tommy, Abiah.


Monbulk 14.11.95 d Healesville 1.2.8

The side was missing a few players who had a volleyball tournament, so four under-14 players were filling in.

The boys worked hard in wet conditions and played strong footy all day.

Best: Alex G, Gary R, Ben H, Tully F, Campbell D.
