IT WAS the South Metropolitan Police against the WA Police All Stars on Friday night at East Fremantle Oval, with the South Metro boys taking out the Con Regan Legacy Football Match.

It was always going to be a tough game for South Metro, coached by Palmyra Sergeant Jason Walker, with the All Stars boasting many players from the WA Police team the HOGS.

South Metro District Superintendent Brad Sorrell was there to support his local cops, as well as the cause of Police Legacy, the organisation that helps look after the families of fallen officers.

Each of the 15-minute quarters were action packed and the players put it all on the line to provide an entertaining show for the crowd.

The final score in the narrow victory was South Metro 7.7.49 to All Stars 6.6.42, with Player of the Match awarded for the second time in three years to Constable Luke Glasson of South Metro (North Response Team).

The event is likely to have raised more than $6500 for Police Legacy and resulted in more than a few sore bodies.
