watched this game on ABC - an absolute cracker of a game. North Port oval looks in good condition (on the tv). any comments from anyone who was there?

They gave everything the Borough,but came up short. I'll rewatch the TV coverage later this week. It was an epic game that was fiercely contested for all 4 quarters.

If we do plsy finals and come across them again, Port should have every confidence we can beat the Cats.

Thought that Port were the best side all day, led by my favourite player.
Sensational fist half by Bonners who took on all commers with plenty of bash & crash.
Just proves that some of these so called AFL champs are no better than the VFL players.

Gave it an almighty crack. Very proud of that effort today and was great to see Port take it up to a very,very good side who has been winning by 10+ goals every week.
Just hope we can sneak in the 8 and see some Septmeber action for a 7th year in a row.
Fantastic game of football though!

If theirs such a thing as a encouraging loss then this was it. Many people had written us off this game (me included) and we nearly proved them wrong. We can be very proud and confident about what is to come in coming weeks. Bad luck lads - we still love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I thought it was a magnificent contest, very proud of my boys for standing up to a side full of incredibly experienced AFL players and not backing down or being willing to be steamrolled over.

I was pretty angry after the game, I felt some of the umpiring decisions were........suspect at best, but that's the nature of the AFL Victoria competition, I suppose.

Go Borough!
