It is always a heart-warming moment for any club or family when you get a father-son or two brothers playing together.

The moment is even more special as the three Hayes brothers from Southern Flinders Football club have been playing together in the B-Grade team since round 6.

The brothers have been playing well together as they sit second on the ladder just behind Broughton-Mundoora on percentage.

They have only recorded one loss of the season so far and continued its good season on the weekend beating the top side by a close 15-point margin in a low-scoring affair.

The Tigers kicked two in the opening term while the Eagles only managed to put one of the board.

The Eagles showed some fight in the second quarter, kicking to goals while the tigers could only get one back.

Broughton-Mundoora got their nose in front by two points at the major break.

The home side were hungry for the win and to beat the top of the table leaders by kicking another three in the third term.

The Eagles only managed to get one on the board and inaccuracy in front of goals probably cost them the match.

The Tigers kicked another two in the final term while the Eagles fought hard to get back in it, but they just ran out of time.

Brett Ballantyne was great for Southern Flinders kicking four goals and Avan Ireland booted three for Broughton-Mundoora.
