TEAMS: Qualifying Finals

Box Hill City Oval will host two qualifying finals this Saturday (5th of September). Box Hill’s seniors will face last year’s premiers in Footscray, while the development squad will welcome back Williamstown.

Box Hill last met Footscray in round one and enjoyed a 13-point win. Unfortunately they will be without onballer Mitch O’Donnell (ACL) – who was named the Hawks’ best player in that victory. However Billy Hartung has been named and should bolster Box Hill’s midfield. Brendan Whitecross is in a rich vein of form, while Dallas Willsmore plucked an impressive 12 marks last week.

The development squad has recently enjoyed a good run of form over Williamstown, beating the Seagulls twice this season. In last week’s 26-point victory, Sam Switkowski kicked three goals and Jared Hardisty had 21 possessions.
