Box Hill Hawks won their second VFL flag when they defeated hot favourites Geelong at Etihad Stadium on Sunday 22 September. The Hawks set the pace with a seven goals to four goals first quarter and won comfortably by 21 points. The Norm Goss Medal for best afield was Box Hill’s Jonathon Simpkin, a former Geelong player. (VFA purists note: while the Hawthorn and Box Hill jumpers are very similar – brown and gold vertical stripes – the jumper worn by Box Hill looked very much like a Hawthorn jumper, with a small white mustang emblem on the front.)

Michael Costello also caught some action of the post-match kick-to-kick. “At the end of the match there was a sea of footballs being kicked on the arena. All this was happening while the presentations were going on – a most unusual backdrop!”  Take a look on YouTube.
