Sterling effort by Frankston to almost pinch this game, leading all day until Box Hill hit the front for the first time half way through the last quarter, but in the end the Dolphs ran out of steam and just couldnt hold Box Hill against the wind. Box Hill just too strong and too classy when it counted. Pittonet was outstanding for Box Hill, looks like one of those guys who is too good for the VFL but struggles in the AFL.
The wins are not on the board this year, and the statistics dont show it, but the amount of improvement in this Frankston team throughout the year has been huge. Collingwood would not want to take the Dolphs lightly next week...Good chance of Frankston getting a second win.
With good recruiting next year Frankston will be a very competitive team, they have a solid game plan and their structues are starting to hold, and with the right additions next year there will some wins on the board. Lets hope after that there will still be a VFL league to play in although it looks like Gilligan will be destroying the second tier leagues within a few years.
