The reserves GF replay should be shown on abc or at least on iview. Definately worth a look espeically the grandstand finish. Don't believe in Golden point. Should have been 5 minutes each way. As footyman says what if one side was kicking with a gale.

On Saturday 3 September 2005, RESERVES, at Williamstown, 2nd semi-final, scores were level.
Williamstown 11-19-85
North Ballarat 12-13-85
There was confusion as what to do, but after a delay and consultation, two 5 minute periods were played. Willi ended up 13-19-97, defeating Roosters 12-14-86.
It was not a 'golden point' result.

Don't know who came up with the idea of golden point in the Willy v Box Hill reserves GF.
How much time between the end of the reserves GF and the start of the senior PF ?
They played 8 minutes anyway. If they played the proper 2 five minute halves they would have played a few extra minutes anyway.

Has any other Grand Finals in local footy been decided by golden points ?
There have been a few decided by extra time.
