TOP LEVEL GAME TURNS INTO A FIZZER
Yinnar and Trafalgar, billed as the match of the round turned into a fizzer as Yinnar belted the Bloods to the tune of 80 points. An eight goal straight first term shook the life out of the Bloods and from then on it was one way traffic. Master Renwick is establishing himself as a senior player and his 6 goals alongside Tim Aitken (also 6) broke Trafalgar's spirit. Morwell East were humbled by Mirboo North in a one horse race, the East managed to kick all their score in the second quarter and their three goals came in as many minutes. Mirboo North helped themselves to a 20-14 to 3-5 win. Palmer and Traill both kicking five each. In the close one between ninth and eighth it was Yarragon who posted their 4th win of the season with a 15 pointer over Hill End in a close slog all day. Newborough claimed the Energy-Australia Cup with a series of wins over YYN, in senior footy they won by over 17 goals with Glenn Michie on target with six and Stewie Robertson with four. Boolara came home with a wind-filled sail to beat Thorpdale by 34 points after trailing by one point at half time.
63-Tim Traill (Mir Nth), 53-Jesse Giardina (Boolarra), 55-Tim Aitken (Yinnar), 46- Glenn Michie (Newb)
