Kinglake stoic runners up in YVMDFL Grand Final

Posted by Vietnam Swans on September 14, 2009

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd with Kinglake player, Jake

I just wanted to say thanks for your efforts and support post the fires. It means a lot. I wish the Swans a great year and will now visit this website more often in the future to follow the fortunes of your club.

The Lakers have had a great year despite the devastation we suffered in February and are a good chance to take the flag. What a story that would be, eh?

Will let you know how we go.

Take care, Kathy

Last Saturday, the Lakers played their Grand Final in front of Prime Minister Rudd and Melbourne President, Jimmy Stynes. Apparently, the Lakers put in a stoic effort but went down in the last quarter by a solitary goal.

It was an amazing performance by Kinglake given what they had been through earlier in the year. Congratulations to Kinglake – and to Olinda who are the 2009 Yarra Valley Mountain District Football League’s Premiers.
