Welcome to the GDFL
NORTH GEELONG has ended an 11-year premiership drought with a 20-point win over Bell Post Hill at St. Albans. The Magpies, who last held the GDFL flag in 2002, led at every change, in front of a huge crowd, on their way to a hard earned 20 point victory, ending the Panthers hopes of becoming the first club to win four consecutive premierships in the modern era.
After a tight opening quarter, North Geelong were up by five points, but then kicked away in the second term, kicking 4.4 while the Panthers posted an inaccurate 2.6.
The Panthers though were not to be cast aside and rallied in the send half to get back to 3 points early in the last with two steady goals to Travis Fursland. But it was the Magpies time and goals to captain Derek Fitzsimmons and Blake Podnar created the break the the Hill could not reign in.
Fitzsimmons starred with four goals for North Geelong, while teenager Podnar, Rod Hutchinson and Toby Biggs each kicked three.
Podnar was named best on ground and received the AFL Victoria medal.
It was a disappointing outcome for the Bell Post Hill club with the A Grade netball also going down to Premiers and Champions Werribee Centrals. The Centurions stamped their control on the game early and were never headed winning by 18 goals with Makayla Ward outstanding.
