The Dolphins controlled the game from start but a big 5 goal to 2 3rd quarter got the dolphins to a big enough lead to win the game. Michael Ablett, Matthew Skehan and Shaun Pollard best for the Dolphins. Kristen Height and Luke Brennan best for the Hawks. Box Hill finish the season with a 7-11 record and are currently in 8th place. For Box Hill to make the finals they most hope that Tasmania beat Williamstown next Sunday. For Frankston they can not finish any lower than 7th place if Tassie beat Willy then Frankston can avert a Tassie final by beating Port Melbourne next week and if that happens they will Port again in the 1st week in the finals.
