All Monbulk Junior Football Club teams travelled away this round, the start of the second half of the season.
The teams are improving – but so are their opposition.
Four consistent quarters of football and teamwork are needed for the rest of the footy year.
Monbulk vs Yarra Glen
It was a slow start to the match up against a tall Yarra Glen side.
The team took instructions and evened out the contest by the end.
Best: L. McConchie, H. Comfort, H. Arnott, M. Fraser, B. McConchie.

The Hawks kicked no goals in the first three quarters but were very competitive in the last quarter.

Wandin 4.3.27 d Monbulk 3.2.20

Healesville 8.9.57 d Monbulk 0.5.5
