Euroa Gazette - - SPORTS -

The club can­not ex­press enough grat­i­tude for the Vi­o­let Town Lion’s club ef­forts - well done.


With the back six hold­ing tight, VT was able to come in at quar­ter time with the scores level.

A five minute burst late in the sec­ond quar­ter saw the boys take a slim lead into half time.

The sec­ond half was much like the first with both sides hav­ing the run of play at times which pro­vided a tense fi­nal quar­ter for both sides’ sup­port­ers.

For­tu­nately for the VT faith­ful, the boys were able to cap­i­talise late in the game and they ran out the win­ners.

Satur­day’s re­sult saw the Scott Kan­ters/Patty Ryan Me­mo­rial Cup re­turn to Vi­o­let Town much to the de­light of Pat’s par­ents, John and Julie, who there to re­ceive the cup on the day. Sec­onds
