Sunday’s Hampden Football Netball League junior preliminary finals saw dreams come true and hearts break.
The Standard photographer Morgan Hancock was there to capture all of the big moments.
The Hamilton Kangaroos won their way through to their second consecutive under 16 grand final with a 31-point win against South Warrnambool.
Kobi Walter led the way for Hamilton in a best-on-ground performance, while Harry English and Lachlan Urquhart both booted two goals.
For South Warrnambool Riley Nicolson was named as his team’s best player.
It was a different story for the Roosters in the under 14 match as they booked a spot in the grand final after beating Cobden by 50 points.
George Stevens starred for South booting three goals and being named best on ground.
Cobden’s Luke Smith was also a standout as his team’s best player with two goals.
It was the Hawks flying high on the netball court as they soared to an 11-goal win over Warrnambool in the 17 and under match.
The trio of Serafina Promnitz, Hannah Owen and Stella Bridgewater were the best players for the Hawks.
And for Warrnambool it was Meg Ludeman and Sophie Kol that performed the best.
In the 14 and under clash it was South Warrnambool in a one-goal thriller against Camperdown.
South deemed Laura Mullins, Alexandra Rea and Charlotte Farley its three top players in the win.
And Lily Baker, Tayla Kavenagh and Georgia Walsh were the better players for Camperdown.
