on . Posted in Blog

Box Hill has returned to the winners list after a 23-point win over Essendon in round five of Peter Jackson VFL at Windy Hill. Just three points separated the sides at three-quarter-time before the Hawks slammed on six goals to the Bombers two in the last term to edge clear, the final score 18.10.118 to 14.11.95.

The Bombers had their chances late in the match but failed to capitalise booting four behinds in a row. Hawk's skipper David Mirra led the way in defence along with Sam Collins while Jed Anderson was dangerous with a game-high four goals and Liston Trophy winner, Alex Woodward, continues to put his hand up for AFL selection.
