The club would like to congratulate Jordan Lisle on confirming himself as an outright winner of his second Jim ‘Frosty’ Miller Medal.
Lisle booted four goals in Saturday’s 6-point victory over Collingwood, which took him to a total of 46 for season 2017.
Entering the game level with Collingwood’s Kayle Kirby, Lisle’s task of becoming an outright winner of the award was made all the more easier with news filtering through on Friday afternoon that Kirby had been selected to make his AFL debut with the Pies against Melbourne.
The pair had a significant buffer on the chasing pack, meaning a goal at the 23rd minute mark of the first term would prove to be enough for Lisle to prevail.
He went on to add three more across the game though, and ultimately had a huge say in the side’s tense win.
Fellow Borough forward Dylan Conway capped off a wonderfully consistent first season at the club, by booting two goals and taking his season tally to 38.
Overall, he finished in fourth position on the VFL competition table, behind Lisle, Kirby and Ben Lennon of Richmond (39 goals).
The VFL competition’s season disposal tallies were also dominated by Port Melbourne midfielders.
Tom O’Sullivan (491 disposals), Eli Templeton (483) and skipper Toby Pinwill (483) filled the first three spots on that chart, and are likely to be at the forefront of discussions for spots in the upcoming VFL Team of the Year – and perhaps even as possible contenders for the JJ Liston Trophy.
The trio can also be expected to poll strongly in Port Melbourne’s Jack McFarlane Medal count, alongside other likely contenders such as Damian Mascitti, Dillon Viojo-Rainbow, Luke Tynan, Conway and Lisle.
The 2017 Jack McFarlane Medal / Presentation Night is confirmed to be held on Friday 6th October in the Sandridge Events Centre. Further details are available HERE; and information surrounding bookings for the night will be communicated over the coming weeks.
