The result was frustrating for the team, which had sat comfortably at the top of the ladder.
“Yeah, it was a tough game,” coach Jamie Spencer told the Baw Baw Citizen.
“They brought a good game today.”
It was a fast-paced game, too.
“They used the ball a lot better than us,” Jamie said.
“It’s always hard being an undefeated team during the season mate, there’s always one loss in ya, and unfortunately that was today.
“They (Phillip Island) brought a good game, we knew they were going to be good competition.
“I said to my boys, while being disappointed, at the same time I’m pretty proud of their year.”
The team’s strong achievements throughout the season are even more impressive when considering how young the side is.
“We’ve got five bottom age players who will be in the 14s again next year.”
