Williamstown have taken out the 2015 VFL Premiership after steam-rolling the Box Hill Hawks at Etihad Stadium in front of 12,900 fans. The Seagulls jumped the Hawks in the first quarter with their small forwards carving their way through their taller opponents to open up a 21 point lead at the first break.
The Hawks managed a minor fight back in the second quarter however the Seagulls again bolted clear in the third before sealing the deal with a six goal to one last term to win handsomely, 18.12.120 to 8.18.66. It's Williamstown's first flag since 2003, when ironically, they defeated the Hawks at the then named Optus Oval now IKON Park.
Collingwood have advanced to a semi-final clash with Sandringham next Sunday after out muscling Werribee in the VFL Legendairy Elimination Final at North Port Oval. The Magpies jumped out of the blocks and held sway for most of the match until Werribee got to within 17 points five minutes into the final quarter before Collingwood steadied to win 13.15.93 to 9.10.64.
The Magpies 29-point win was orchestrated by Patrick Karnezis (18 disposals) who was among the goals again booting a game-high three along with Sam Dwyer who gathered thirty disposals through the midfield and Jarrod Witts (13, 33 hit outs) who dominated in the ruck. Werribee was best served by Scott Sherlock with 27 touches and Ben Speight in his 100th match kicking two goals while Scott McMahon and Brody Mihocek tried hard in defence.
