VWFL: R8 review

Luke Roberts is a passionate advocate of inclusion and accessibility for all people living with disability. He uses the Grid Pad technology, in conjunction with a Quha device which communicates with the Grid Pad. This technology, along with the support of his speech pathologist, enables Luke to write the VWFL match reports.

It was a brilliant game of wheelchair football.

Hawthorn began Round 8 with a new teammate, Kathleen O’Kelly-Kennedy. Kathleen performed well in the middle of the court, proving to be dominant in the ruck contests and facilitating play throughout the centre.

Collingwood were too strong on the day, out performing Hawthorn in all 4 quarters. However, the Hawks never gave up.

Brian Owen played another great game up front, scoring twice. Hawthorn are looking forward to the final two games and aim to finish the season on a high note. GO THE HAWKS!!

Quarter time: Hawthorn 12 Collingwood 38

Half time: Hawthorn 26 Collingwood 75

Third quarter: Hawthorn 39 Collingwood 88
