    This year marks the 35th year of the MCC-Herald Sun Shield, the most prestigious school boy’s football competition in Australia.

    AFL Victoria in partnership with the MCC Foundation and the Herald Sun is now in its 11th year of showcasing the most talented senior boy’s school football teams across Victoria.

    The game was highlighted by strong, hard, committed football by both teams, each fighting hard to take advantage of the ball and showing a high level of skill and endeavour. PEGS led in the first quarter by 11 points, but St Patrick's fought back to have the scores level at half-time.

    The start of the final quarter saw St Patrick’s eight points in front, but PEGS were relentless and scored to make it all level at the eight-minute mark of the last quarter.  St Patrick's answered the challenge and stormed away, kicking five of the next six goals to win by 23 points.

    The best player medallions went to St Patrick's Nick O'Brien (Neale Daniher Medal) and PEGS' Darcy Bailey (Kevin Sheehan Medal).  The premiership trophy was presented to St Patrick’s captain Nick O’Brien and coach Howard Clark.
