Wow! What a game last night! Port Adelaide (Sooty's team) came from behind to beat last year's champions, the West Coast Eagles (the Hot(M)BC's team), by just three points (9.14.68 to 9.11.65 this means that both teams scored 9 goals, worth 6 points each, but Port scored 3 more points than the Eagles). It was a very exciting game - a great opening to the finals. Don't worry, cats at the Hot(M)BC, you have another chance next week (not sure who you play yet). And Sooty, your team gets a week off and will play in a preliminary final in two weeks' time... if they win that, they're in the Grand Final! But it's still early days.
It was an exciting night for Port... not only did they win, but their coach's wife had a baby! He left straight after the game to be with his wife and meet his fifth child. I think he's trying to make his own footy team!
Two matches today... well, one today and one tonight. May the best teams win!
