WINNERS

GDFL SCOREBOARD – ROUND 15

“THE” RESULT

Bell Post Hill has continued Werribee Centrals’ horror run at Myers Reserve, and the same time denied the Centurions third spot on the GDFL ladder, with an upset 14-point win on a heavy track, 11.10 (76) to 8.14 (62). After jumping Centrals with the first four goals of the match, the Panthers found themselves seven points in arrears midway through the final term. However, they were able to kick the last three goals of the contest to claim victory on Past Players’ Day. Co-coach Justin Tarr admits the conditions played into Bell Post Hill’s hands. “It probably slowed Werribee down – they like to move the ball pretty quick,” Tarr told K rock’s The Wash-Up. “So it played into our hands, and I thought the harder and tougher side would come away with the win, and I feel that was definitely us, for sure.”

TIGERS WITH “BEST WIN” OF 2019

Coach Peter Riccardi wasn’t holding back in his description of Bannockburn’s 46-point win over Inverleigh at Victoria Park as they all but ensured the double-chance with three rounds to play. “We played our best footy of the year,” Riccardi said. “Everything we planned we actually did out on the ground, which was fantastic. And we had quality players out as well.” Among those missing were Tom Gillies, Michael Stevenson, Brayden Vicars, Aaron Barnett and Kieran Fulton. Making the win even more memorable was a late goal to co-captain Linc Peters late in his 150th game.

EAGLES STAY ALIVE, GIANTS DONE

East Geelong has stormed home from 26 points down at three-quarter time to keep its finals flame flickering for at least another week. The Eagles held North Geelong scoreless in the final term to snatch a three-point win, 9.13 (67) to 9.10 (64) at Richmond Crescent. However, for East to stay in contention beyond next week, they need to beat Werribee Centrals at Galvin Park and have Geelong West upset fifth-placed Winchelsea. Speaking of the Giants, there will be no consecutive finals appearances for Andrew Clark and Mitch Wight’s men following a disappointing 35-point loss to a resurgent Anakie.
