Ray's footy trivia - the low-scoring final

IN the 1957 Southern Districts Football Association preliminary final played on September 14 between Hamilton and Bothwell at Bridgewater in heavy rain and driving winds, Bothwell kicked with the wind in the first quarter and scored three goals and five behinds. By three-quarter-time Hamilton had managed to score two goals and four behinds with Bothwell unable to add to their score.

In the last quarter Hamilton kicked one goal and four behinds to win by three points. The final scores were Hamilton 3.8 (26) to Bothwell 3.5 (23). Bothwell had been unable to add to its quarter time score. An under-strength Hamilton was no match for Bridgewater in the Grand Final a week later.
