The final game of the AFW (American Football Wellington) regular season came to end with the Hutt Valley Spartans winning a whopping 68-0. The Porirua Giants were playing with limited numbers and were forced to play Ironman most of the game. Though their numbers were few they had heart to fight through the 4 quarters with pride.

Offensive MVP goes to Jonathan Connor with 7 TD's and 1 rushing TD. Defensive MVP goes to Chris Toms with 3 picks, the Spartan ball Hawk.

Running back Ese Amosa almost took it to the house to surpass the record with a screen pass, breaking tackles left right and centre but fell short inches away from glory as time expired with no timeouts.

Spartans go 6-0 with a perfect season & we look forward to the finals vs the Wellington Wolves.
