Bulleen Champions In Another Shoot-Out August 29, 2004.
Green Gully Soccer Club congratulates Bulleen Zebras on winning the 2004 La Ionica VPL Championship.
In recent years the VPL Grand Final has been remembered for high drama and end to end attacking football, although 2004 will be remembered as a stalemate that could only be decided on a penalty shoot-out.
A Crowd of Approx. 4500 at Bob Jane Stadium.
Michael Theoklitos was the hero for Bulleen Zebras with three outstanding saves in the penalty shoot-out. Altona Magic striker Sash Becvinovski was so impressed by Theoklitos, he actually applauded the Bulleen keeper as he saw his kick saved.
Theoklitos will now leave Bulleen for trials in Greece.
