A disappointing end to a good season. Just didn't play our best footy today and Hectorville took advantage. It was a funny end to the season with only 14 games (including finals) being played due to the very poor programming by the SAAFL. With the consistent improvement the side was showing over the year, with a full season the boys would have been in the final.
