A dramatic kick after the siren has ended today’s nail-biting VFL clash between Port Melbourne and Box Hill in a tie.
In his first ever VFL game, Port Melbourne’s Isaac Conway took a Leo Barry-esque mark floating back with the flight in the dying seconds.
He then received a 50m penalty for encroaching the mark after Hawks’ players were too slow to move away from Conway, giving him the opportunity to win the game off his own boot from 70m out after the siren.
With scores locked at 108 all Conway went with the barrel, falling well short of the goals in a finish.
Box Hill’s Nelson Lane had earlier kicked a crucial goal earlier to get the Hawks within a point, before Hawthorn-listed player Kade Stewart then had the chance to give the Hawks the lead.
However his rushed left-foot snap sprayed to the right, levelling the scores.
Port Melbourne trailed by 16 points at three quarter time but managed to snatch the lead within the first ten minutes.
Box Hill then scored the next two goals, before the home side piled on the next three.
The Hawks had the majority of the play late in the piece and managed to level the scores in the final moments.
The two sides were level at half-time and finished the game tied in what was one of the best VFL matches of the season.
