VFL Saturday recap: Finals Week 2

Williamstown has kept its season alive with a 46-point win over Sandringham in Saturday's Semi Final match.

The Seagulls have booked a Preliminary Final berth against Casey Scorpions next weekend, with the day of the game to be announced on Sunday night. 

Scoring as limited early in the second term, until the game was delayed after a severe injury to Sandringham's Jack Noone, who was stretchered from the field with two breaks in his lower leg. The Seagulls recovered the better from the game delay, to set up their victory with the next five goals of the game.

In the development league Preliminary Final, a Bailey Fritsch goal late regained the lead for Casey Scorpions over Williamstown, to clinch a Grand Final berth against Box Hill Hawks next Saturday.

 

WILLIAMSTOWN 14.11 (95) d SANDRINGHAM 7.7 (49) 

Telling Facts: Williamstown kicked away from Sandringham with four unanswered goals to finish the second term, setting up a 26-point half-time lead. The Seagulls fought back in the third term, cutting the Seagulls 34-point lead back to 16 points at the final change. But a six goal to one final term sealed the win for the 2015 premiers, who are a step closer to returning to grand Final day.
