The Wash-Up – GDFL Round 3

WINNERS

SCOREBOARD – ROUND 3

“THE” RESULT

Werribee Centrals snapped a run of outs against Bell Post Hill stretching back to early 2010 to score their first win of the season. The Centurions were always in control at Galvin Park in a performance that impressed coach Nick Smith. The scary thing is that even if Centrals had their points cap brought back to 40, they only played at 32 against the Panthers. They are positioning themselves for a serious tilt at a first flag since 2004 in coming years.

THE TALKING POINT

Do we dare declare the phenomenal finals run of Bell Post Hill over after an 0-3 start to the season? Maybe we should wait until its mathematically impossible for the Panthers to feature in the final five before we do that.

MITCHELL STARS IN MILESTONE GAME

A five-goal haul was an impressive way for Brayden Mitchell to mark his 50th game since joining Geelong West in 2016. Mitchell has kicked 117 goals in that time.

DAN’S DAY OUT

Dan Freeman starred with nine goals as Thomson overcame a slow start to beat Belmont Lions by 79 points at Godfrey Street. He kicked the Tigers’ first and last goals of the afternoon as part of his best return in the purple and gold since arriving at the club last year. Freeman enjoys playing against the Lions. He kicked six goals in the only meeting with Ash Witney’s men in 2018.
