In a hard fought and evenly matched game, Diamond Valley defeated South Yarra 1-0 in the first league game since the end of the 2019 season.
Robert Montagnese got the all-important winner in the 40th minute with a clinical finish, following a great through ball by Luca Di Iorio. The team played put in a spirited Valley performance until the final whistle. We now turn our attention to hosting Rowville Eagles this coming Saturday
It was also good to have the old brigade in Neilson, Donny, Gordon and previous senior player and coach Rob Ardesi present the tops to the players before the game and say a few words each, to breathe some old history back into the players.
