Cool under pressure: Our 14s win the flag in a real thriller U14DPremiership2009 520pix

Moonee Valley's Under 14 White team proved themselves the masters of pressure cricket when they won their Premiership nine wickets down and with just two balls to go.
The game had already been pushed into the reserve day on March 21, after we had received the worst of the conditions on both days the previous weekend. But under coach Glenn Perussich the boys knew what was needed, and even though we lost wickets they maintained the chase.
Some intelligent hitting and some great running between wickets put the pressure back on Taylors Lakes, and our Valley team prevailed.
The win has now elevated Glenn - a "returned dad" who took to the field this season in our Tenths - to the only junior coach who has won multiple premierships at Moonee Valley, following on from his Under 12 H flag two seasons ago.
It's also our ninth junior premiership at Moonee Valley. We have now won one or more flags in each of the past six seasons.
