Shepparton’s Tom Thorsen may not have created Goulburn Valley Football League history, but that was no dampener on a third straight underage triumph at Shepparton’s Deakin Reserve yesterday.
Thorsen joined an exclusive group of players who have played in three successive under-18 flags.
Others that are known to have achieved the feat are players from a dominant Lemnos side in the 1970s.
Thorsen capped the third triumph by claiming the VCFL best-on-ground medal, for his two-goal effort.
One of the goals came as the Bears came from behind to snatch it in the last quarter.
Thorsen summed it up simply in the aftermath.
‘‘It is a great feeling,’’ Thorsen said.
‘‘To be down at three-quarter time, it just shows the character of the boys to come back and turn it around.’’
Thorsen was a regular in the Bears’ senior line-up this year, earning a spot as a starting on-baller.
He only missed three games in the top-flight.
Thorsen was typically modest about his own performance.
‘‘I started a bit slow, but then I slowly built into the game,’’ he said.
‘‘It was good to get into it late.’’
As for next season, he has not thought that far ahead.
‘‘I haven’t really thought about it much at the moment,’’ he said.
‘‘I am just living in the moment, enjoying this one and then after a couple of weeks, when we get back into pre-season, then I will start worrying about next year and go from there.’’
