The Wash-Up – BFL Round 7

WINNERS

BFL SCOREBOARD – ROUND 7

“THE” RESULT

A draw between Geelong Amateur and Anglesea. In what was the 50th meeting between the two clubs, the Roos came from 13 points in arrears at three-quarter time to grab a share of the points. Remarkably, it’s the first time since 2000 that Anglesea has left with KFC Oval with something to show for their efforts, having been on the end of 18 consecutive losses to Ammos. The draw was the first in the Bellarine since Newcomb and Queenscliff couldn’t be split in Round 2, 2017. It was Geelong Amateur’s first draw since 2011 and Anglesea’s since 2008.

THE TALKING POINT

Is Ocean Grove still in touch with the top five? The Grubbers got a handy percentage boost from their win over Portarlington and pulled to within two games of fifth-placed Drysdale. They need to beat Torquay next week or Jordy Jones’ men will be playing elimination finals for the remainder of 2019 if they’re not already.

SON OF A GUN SHINES

Tom Richardson proved the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree with his nine-goal haul for Ocean Grove against Portarlington. Richardson, who is listed with the Geelong Falcons and was playing just his fourth senior game, is the son of former Grubbers and Drysdale spearhead, Adam. Richardson Senior topped the BFL goal kicking in 1995 in helping Ocean Grove to the second of four consecutive flags. He did it again in 2003 with the Hawks on his return to his junior club. In between, he spent time on Geelong’s supplementary list, won the SANFL goal kicking four times with West Adelaide, and played two AFL games with Adelaide.

STAR SEAGULL TO FACE MATCH REVIEW SCRUTINY

Barwon Heads recruit Tim McIntyre will find out if he has a case to answer with AFL Barwon’s Match Review Panel after being yellow carded in the win over Newcomb. Seagulls’ co-coach Mitch Herbison confirmed on K rock’s The Wash-Up an incident was referred to the MRP by the umpires. It was one of three yellow cards produced during the day.
