There is nothing like a close AFL football Game, for spectator enjoyment.
Two evenly matched teams . The Hawks , lead by a point at the first break , the Saints by a point at half time , and at the 3rd , and last quarter nothing seperated them .The match ultimately resulting in a draw. Two points to each club.
Much has been written , and spoken about the Hawthorn disallowed goal in the final minutes , which most certainly cost the Hawks outright victory.
As a long time follower of AFL football, it ranks as one of the best games I have ever seen .
Two things stood out . St Kilda’s fighting spirit , and the Hawks great athleticism . All this , combined with the size and the roar of the crowd , and an adrenalin fuelled , action packed spectacle,Â that thrilled fans to the very last ,Â showcased friday night footy at its very best .
