The Salvo Hawks were shocked when the Geelong side scored the first goal of the game within 30 seconds.
Showing no signs of panic, the Salvo Hawks responded and led at quarter time by 22 points.
They then showed complete dominance which unfortunately was not reflected on the scoreboard, due to inaccurate kicking for goal.
Following some impressive running football with strong defensive skills, their lead at half time increased to 27 points.

 The Hawks they entered the final term with a  commanding lead of 48 points but Geelong fought back valiantly in the last quarter at one stage scoring four goals to nil. In the end it was all too late with the Salvo Hawks responding to run away winners by 30 points at the final siren.
                              
A special thanks to the Hawthorn Rotarians Ian Bentley, Lawrence Reddaway, Kim D'Arcy, Geoff Wright, Noel Halford, Mick Flinn and other friends and family who made the event so successful.
