    Them 3.5 7.6 12.7 13.9.87

Round 17 saw us play Old Melburnians for the 3rd time this season and the first time at home. 

The equation was simple. Win and keep our finals alive. Lose and we rely on other results to get in. 

The players knew the importance of the game and it showed in the first half as we came out strong and moved the ball with speed and accuracy. It was great to see co captain henry back into the side from 11 weeks out with a broken ankle, and he took off right where he left from kicking 6 first half goals to give us a real boost in the arm. 

The third term was our worst as we eased off the pressure and allowed om's to get back into the game. Our 1%'s stopped and we stopped doing the team things that gave us an advantage in the first half. 

The final quarter was all or nothing as we have given up our 4 goal lead to trail by 8 points at 3 quarter time. 

The boys played amazingly in the final quarter. We were desperate for the win and our fitness and belief really came through as even with 2 minutes left when we trailed by 4 points we never stopped and managed to kick 2 goals in the final 2 minutes to run away with an 8 point win and keep our post season hopes alive.
