BOISDALE-BRIAGOLONG could not keep up with Orbost-Snowy Rovers, with the home side winning its first match for 2018, 13.7 (85) to 10.14 (74).

The Bombers kept in touch with the Blues for most of the match, but Orbost kicked ahead in the second to lead by 12 points at three-quarter-time.

The damage was done by then, as inaccurate kicking cost the Bombers several opportunities at goal.

Cal Egan impressed with four goals, and ruckman Nicoll Sandison was best for the Bombers, kicking two.

Jordan Clegg was best for Orbost, and Hamish Nettleton kicked five goals.

A VALIANT six-goal final quarter put Stratford agonisingly close to defeating Lakes Entrance during round six of East Gippsland football.

Lakes won 15.8 (98) to 14.10 (94) at Stratford on Saturday.

The Seagulls hit the lead early, leaving Stratford stranded by 27 points at half-time, with the same margin at three-quarter-time.

The Swans threw everything at Lakes in the fourth term, getting frustratingly close.

Former Lindenow South player Haydn Erfurth booted five goals for the Swans, while stalwarts Rodney O’Keefe kicked three and Lachie Heywood, named their best player, kicked two.

Seagulls coach James Gibbs kicked six goals, with William Puruntatameri their best.

The win pushes Lakes Entrance to the top of the East Gippsland ladder.

Stratford drops to second, without much of a percentage barrier between it and Wy Yung on third.
