IT was touted as the match of the season, a fitting scenario for the 2017 grand final, when Euroa took on St Mary’s at Memorial Oval on Sunday.
With experts declaring the game too close to call, and most supporters hedging their bets by saying it could go either way, Sunday’s match had all the possibility of being an absolute cracker.

Euroa also looked fit, healthy and keen.

The first quarter was everything football fanatics dream of – fast paced, skilful and dogged.
