The Wash-Up – GDFL Round 6

WINNERS

GDFL SCOREBOARD – ROUND 6

“THE” RESULT

Inverleigh did what many clubs have struggled to do in recent year – beat Werribee Centrals on Past Players’ Day. Despite a typically vocal pro-Centurions crowd at Galvin Park, the Hawks – inspired by four goals from playing coach Adam Donohue – snuck home by two points after trailing by 18 points at three-quarter time. While only Round 6, it was your old-fashioned ‘eight-point game’, with fourth-placed Inverleigh opening up a two-game buffer on the sixth-placed Centrals.

THE TALKING POINT

Mitch Habib honoured the memory of his late grandfather, Joe, with a career-high 12 goals in North Geelong’s demolition of Corio at Keith Barclay Oval. It was Mitch’s first game since Joe’s passing on May 15. Joe was well known in the local football community, with sons Jason (Mitch’s father), Steve and Gavin, and daughter Alisha all making their mark at various times on the local game. Both the Magpies and Devils wore black armbands, with Mitch and Jason given the honour of leading North Geelong from the field at the end of the match. Mitch now leads the GDFL goal kicking after taking his tally to the season to 25.

FOR YOU, DAD

Jake Smith ended what had been a tough week for his family on a high with eight goals in East Geelong’s reserve grade win over Belmont Lions at Winter Reserve. Dad Eric ‘Bricka’ Smith, who was a star at Geelong Amateur and St Mary’s, while also coaching Modewarre and Newcomb, died suddenly last Sunday and was farewelled by more than 1000 people at St Mary’s Basilica on Thursday. It was a big day for the Eagles, who retained the Mark Lomas Shield with victory in the senior clash.

The first (and second) of 8, for Bricka! πŸ¦…βœŠπŸ»β™₯️
