A couple of old games wanted.
I was speaking to my grandfather this morning about how I had discovered this website that allows you to download old VFA games through bittorrent. He suggested that I request someone upload the two following games as they are classics:- 1. The GF of Dandenong Vs Pt. Melbourne in the early 70s that had a wild brawl that included HARPER the full back from Pt. Melbourne. 2. The mid 70s GF of Prahran Vs Preston. Names included Kekovich, McGuinness and Pepi. :D

[quote="Slattery"]I've been told its the 1978 GF I'm after between Prahran and Preston. Ta. Can anyone assist?[/quote] 1978 Prahran finished third. Won First Semi against Dandenong by 25 points. Defeated Port Melbourne 20.14.134 to 16.16.112 in Preliminary Final. Prahran 21.15.141 defeated Preston 17.17.119 to win a classic Grand Final clash at the Junction Oval, St.Kilda. The prelim final against was the better game when Sam Kekovitch playing a great game and had Port looking over their shoulders all match long.

A few years back during finals the ABC at half time showed highlights of old grand finals. I taped as much as i could and have bits of 1974 (Oak v PM), 1978, 1982 (port,preston), 1989 (willy,coburg), 1990 (willy/'vale) and 1991 (dandy/werr). Probably others too. IMO, best game of the 1978 final series was the 2nd semi when Preston kicked 10 goals in the first quarter, and then weathered a Port comeback. Port hit the front late in the game but Preston CHF Gonsalves marked and goaled to give the Bullants a 4 point win. 1978 was probably one of the all time great VFA seasons and all but one of the games played between Preston, Prahran and Port were decided by less than a goal. Unfortunately i had to watch Willi only win 3 games in Div 2 to finished 2nd last. Box Hill were last, but had 1 win (against Willi).

Harper was a mongrel of a player. Buster Harland fixed him up in the end (1976 GF). Harper joined Frankston after Dandenong and was part of the 1978 winning Frankston premiership in 2nd Division. Robert Mace also played.
