Today the Templestowe Park Football Team played in the Manningham Division Football Final against Templestowe Valley Primary School. TPPS showed a lot of pride and integrity in the final, but unfortunately the opposition were too strong on the day, with Templestowe Valley defeating Templestowe Park, 76 - 30.
The Templestowe Park Football Team is made up of a combination of boys and girls from Years 5 and 6. They earned their spot in this final after a strong season, taking out the Templestowe District Premiership. The core midfield brigade of Luke Crawford, Cooper Errey, Harrison Thiele, Jess Nott and Evan Harinos were always well led by our courageous captain James Heath and athletic ruckman Matthew Aldous. Down back, we could always count on Tom Nott, Jack Donald, Kyan Elton, Curtis Sharp, Ethan Crane, Kyle McCall-Ong, Adam Cox and Arabella Greaves, who always cooperated well together. Additionally, we were never starved for goals with Blair Cass, Jack Middleton, Jack Bowring, Jennah Mustafa, Archie McIntyre, Kalise Freeney and Nicholas Jefferys playing up forward.
I could not be prouder of the team and what they have achieved over the course of the season. I have watched them develop their teamwork and leadership skills and wish them the best in the future with their blossoming football careers.
