Monbulk Junior Football Club’s under-16 boys played their hardest in their grand final match on Sunday 25 August.
But Mount Evelyn was the better team on the day and won the premiership flag, 8.13.61 to 1.7.13.
Gary Ross was named player of the match.
“We are proud of every single player for not only making it to the grand final and giving it their all, but for a year of team work, pride, sportsmanship and passion for the great game of football,” the Hawks said.
“We farewell some top-aged under-16s as they head off to senior football and wish them well.
“For the rest of the players – bring on 2020.”
