The Wash-Up – GDFL Round 14 (Part 2)

WINNERS

GDFL SCOREBOARD – ROUND 14 (Part 2)

“THE” RESULT

Thomson is just about assured of starting its final campaign from no worse than a qualifying final after dispatching Winchelsea by 104 points. The Tigers are three games clear of Bannockburn and Winchelsea and should maintain that buffer when they cross St Albans Road for a meeting with East Geelong next Sunday.

THE TALKING POINT

Can Geelong West snap a 21-year premiership drought? Having avoided a potential tripwire against lowly North Geelong, the Giants now face what shapes as a crucial clash with seventh-placed Werribee Centrals.

BIG WINNER

The GDFL. Seven clubs remain legitimate finals chance with a month remaining, including perennial strugglers Geelong West and Winchelsea still in the mix.

THE KEY NUMBER

184. The point turnaround Thomson produced from its previous meeting with Winchelsea. In Round 3, the Tigers were handed an 80-point hiding by the Blues. This time around, they made the most of an undermanned Winchelsea line-up to consolidate their spot inside the top three.
