Monbulk Junior Football Club’s Hawkettes are through to their grand final.

The Under-14 side defeated Emerald on Sunday 11 August, 3.5.23 to 1.2.8.

The team expected a high-pressure, physical game from Emerald and knew that its first efforts were imperative to the results.

To play the game in the now and produce second and third efforts with pressure, being first to the ball and using their finishing off skills gave the girls what they needed.

The Hawkettes proved that the game mattered, and they wanted the opportunity of being competitive with Mount Evelyn in the grand final.
