The Wash-Up – BFL Preliminary Final

WINNERS

BFL SCOREBOARD – PRELIMINARY FINAL

FIRST GRAND FINAL MEETING BETWEEN SEAGULLS AND TIGERS

They were both founding members of the Bellarine and District Football League in 1971, but, amazingly, Barwon Heads and Torquay have never met in a grand final. The Seagulls will be chasing their fifth BFL premiership and first since 1993. The Tigers will be looking for their ninth flag and second in three years after saluting in 2017. If Dom Gleeson’s men do beat Barwon Heads, they will regain the mantle as the BFL’s most successful club, going one premiership clear of Ocean Grove.

TIGERS AND WARRIORS RENEW SECONDS RIVALRY

After providing us with a grand final that finished with extra time in 2018, Torquay and Modewarre will meet in the reserve grade grand final for the second-straight year. The Tigers have been the dominant club in the seconds over the last decade, appearing in every grand final bar one (2017) since 2010. They have a 4-4 record in the eight grand finals in that period.

NOFI NAMED HAWKS BEST

Tevan Nofi has taken out the Drysdale best-and-fairest. The talented young defender, who was named on the half-back in the BFL Coaches’ Team of the Year, finished ahead of former Western Bulldogs speedster Lauchie Dalgleish, with captain Mitch McGuire third.

ON POINT

Geelong Amateur: 34/40
