A ruthless Ellinbank held Nilma Damum scoreless to gain a good percentage boost which may prove important in the tight for fifth place despite inaccurate kicking in front of goal.
Tim Mashado and Mark Vassett ran riot for the wasteful Bankers. The final score of 7.19 (61) to 0.0 (0) tells the story of a woeful after noon for the Bombers.
It is possibly the first time in their EDFL history at senior level that Nilma Darnum have gone scoreless in a senior game.Hayley Wildes
Second-placed Longwarry and third-placed Warragul Industrials were expected to play out a finals like match and the contest delivered, with the result hinging on a shot at goal in the final thirty seconds of the match.
With Tyson Bale the Industrials best player and a constant thorn in the opposition’s side the midfielder made one last ditch attempt to level the scores in the final minute, only to be denied by a touch off the boot from a Crows defender. Having earlier kicked away with four goals to one in the first quarter, the Crows held on to win 7-8 (50) to 6-9 (45).
In Shane Ingham’s 100th game, the Industrials weren’t to be denied following their slow start and worked their way back into the contest. Scoring the only goal of the second term to cut the margin to 11 points in what was becoming a dour contest, the Industrials cut the margin to just five points at the final change with two goals to one to give themselves a real chance of victory. At one stage the Industrials wrested the lead, only for the Crows to respond and kick clear again. With the Crows holding a six-point advantage in the dying stages, Bale made a desperate snap in an attempt to draw level but couldn’t clear the hands of a desperate Longwarry defender.
Nicholas Redley held the edge in the ruck duels, while Nathan Fry, Riley Rundell, Danny Wells, Casey Wells and Cole Cook were also instrumental in helping the Crows hold on. Bale, Tye Holland, Michael Ablett, Mitch Davies, Joel Morgan and Shane Brewster led the way to give the Industrials every chance of taking the match.
The win for Longwarry put them two games clear of the Industrials in second position.Warragul & Drouin Gazette
