Bulleen AFC: 6.8-44
Coming off the back of a good win against Eltham the week before, the Unicorns made the trek out to Templestowe to play against a side that had pushed a few of the top sides in the preceding rounds.
Both sides came out firing from the start and after a fierce first quarter, MHSOB was up by 8 points at the first break.
Bulleen were tough to beat in the second quarter, playing their best footy for the game. While the Unicorns lost La Fontaine to a head injury in a courageous contest, Bulleen snatched the lead to be up by 3 points at half time.
The conditions started to turn for the worse, as the unicorns bounced back in the third quarter, slowly regaining control of the game to lead again at the three quarter time.
Unicorn pressure did not ease up in the last quarter, as they controlled most of the play and put some quick goals on the board to open up the lead. In the end, Bulleen just couldn’t hold on as the Unicorns went on to win by 23 points.
