The Wash-Up – BFL Round 18

WINNERS

BFL SCOREBOARD – ROUND 18

“THE” RESULT

Modewarre grabbed the double-chance for the first time since 2001 with a 30-point win over Geelong Amateur. Making the result even more impressive is the fact the Warriors hadn’t beaten Ammos since Round 13, 2012. It was also just the sixth time Modda has beaten its former GDFL rival since the two teams joined the BFL in the mid 1990s.

THE TALKING POINT

Has Anglesea got everyone healthy at the right time? Ryan Williams and Daniel Courtney both made returns for the Roos after nearly a month on the sidelines, while Dale Carson successfully negotiated his second game back. James Edmonds appears the only potential inclusion for Saturday’s qualifying final against Modewarre.

BIG WINNER

For the second week in-a-row, Modewarre, no question.

THE KEY NUMBER

11. The least number of wins needed to secure the BFL double-chance since 2008. Modewarre’s superior percentage was enough to relegate Geelong Amateur and Queenscliff to next week’s elimination final.

FARRELLY, JULL CLAIM TOP HONOURS

Modewarre defender Matt Farrelly and Drysdale assistant coach Daniel Jull have taken out their respective club best-and-fairests. Farrelly claimed the Warriors’ award from co-coach Josh Finch, while Jull finished ahead of Shane Murdoch and Josh Eddy.
