Brave 19s fall short in Grand Final

A brave third quarter fightback wasn’t enough for the U19 Premier Reserves side as they succumbed to a 28-point defeat at the hands of Old Xaverians at the Box Hill City Oval.

The two sides probed each other’s defences in a tense first 15 minutes, with Charlie Bryan and Jackson Doyle attacking the ball brilliantly in the air to stop any scoring opportunities.

Frustratingly, Xavier drew first blood after multiple SKOB misses at the other end, and then added a second goal close to the siren to take a 12-point lead into the first break.
