Assumption College Kilmore’s First XVIII football team defeated Marcellin by 49 points on Saturday to claim the 2022 title in the Associated Grammar Schools of Victoria, AGSV, competition.

In front of a large home crowd, which included many former players including past captains, the Dark and Light Blues were dominant.

The heavy ground conditions may have slightly favoured the home team but it was a convincing win to cap off an unbeaten season.

The standard of play was high, with many brilliant exchanges.

The Dark and Light Blues won three quarters well, while the Eagles had a fine third term.

The score difference at the final break was 25 points but Assumption dominated the final term to win 13.20 (98) to 7.7 (49).

Assumption’s big-name players Rowston, Longmire, Harvey and Moloney were well to the fore but there were no passengers in a well-drilled, highly motivated unit.

Harry Rowston, a boarder from tiny Binya, near Griffith, NSW, was named in the Herald Sun as a likely high draft pick in the November AFL draft.

The crowd applauded both teams at game’s end. Some of the happiest former ACK players in attendance were captains of distinction Fred Le Deux, Pater Tossol, Ray Power and Jesse Taylor.

Le Deux, whose grandson is Cats star Tom Hawkins, captained Assumption 70 years ago.

Principal Kate Fogarty would have been happy with the proceedings, starting with a fine rendition of the national anthem by a senior student. Hundreds enjoyed refreshments to celebrate after the game.
