Top 5 favourite VFA games attended

Top 5 favourite games attended

A tough question but would be interesting to see which games whether they are finals or home ands away matches. List your five matches with a small summary.

My top five but not in any order. There have been many other favourite games but these five stick out for me

1976 VFA 1st Division Grand Final Port Melbourne v Dandenong
Typified the VFA from the grand era. Tough, big crowds, entertaining and some great footy too.
1982 VFA 2nd Division Grand Final Northcote v Caulfield at Toorak Park
Barracking for Northcote this was a ripper of a game and great result. First flag for 21 years.
1976 Home and away game Sunshine v Northcote at Skinner Reserve
Northcote trailed by almost five goals but kicked 5 goals in about 3 1/2 minutes to steal victory. Miracle win.
1990 VFA Grand Final Sopringvale v Williamstown at Princes Park
The seagulls trailed by 34 points after a few minutes into the last quarter but stage a magnificent comeback to win. Billy Swan kicked the sealer.
1976 VFA 2nd Division Grand Final Mordialloc v Williamstown
Mordialloc was hot favourites but the seagulls gave them a hiding by 57 points in a tough, bruising game. Good crowd that made Toorak Park a special place come September.
