Round three produced a mixed bag of results
Thorpdale caused a huge upset when the defeated Trafalgar, both teams having a shocking run of injuries, Thorpdale jumped away early and were never headed. Who can remember Trafalgar losing two in a row? (Pix: Nathan Scurrah-Happy with the win)
Reigning premiers Mirboo North were beaten by Newborough as the Bulldogs made a last quarter blitz to over run the Tigers. After leading in a close battle all day, Mirboo North failed to score in the last quarter as Newborough piled on 5-2 to win by 26 points.Newborough had 11 players missing (B Michie, M Gelagotis, T Wilson, J Todd, A Battista, M Stanlake, D Disisto, J Cattanach, R Jacobs, D Risol and T Mander) that played in the Grannie while Mirboo North had 5 missing (K & J Nash, J Brooks, D Gardner, and L Palmer).
YYN continued their charge up the ladder with a hard fought game against Yarragon, the scoreline said a 25 point win but it was only YYN's better accuracy that won the match with both sides having 17 shots at goal. Who can remember YYN winning two in a row?
Yinnar were lucky that Morwell East were not stronger as the Magpies wasted opportunities with a 10-24 scoreline, at one stage they were 1-14. Bad kicking=bad football. Tim Aitken finished with six out of 10 for Yinnar.
Boolarra won their second game, at the expense of Hill End. It was the Demons second quarter that lifted them after they were behind in the first term
