They say you only ever lose if you don’t learn as a result.
Hill End will this weekend show us just how last weeks 20 plus goal thrashing at the hands of Yallourn Yallourn North , has effected them.
Sometimes losses like that can have a club questioning themselves, even against a side that they are expected to defeat,
Give credit where its due, Boolarra continue to front up week in week out, winning for the Demons is now only a distant memory, but if one week a majority of the team can recall how its done, they will upset an opponent.
In the past fortnight, they may have not looked like winning, but they also havnt looked like being thrashed.
One of the pre season goals was to stay with teams longer and steal a game here and there when in reach.

The Bombers are back winning games of football, and ready to rumble with the unbeaten Yinnar this week.
Yallourn Yallourn North were out muscled in their disappointing round 1 loss to Thorpdale, but it seems to have also been the early season wake up call, the club needed.
Strong team performances in the last fortnight has coach Barrie Burnett up and about that he has the right ingredients to once again mix it with the very best.
Yinnar as it so happens appear to one of the very best, winners in all of their first three rounds, over reigning premiers Mirboo North, the aspiring Morwell East, before making light work of Newborough last week.
A multitude of goal kickers, led by McBride a solid midfield and well organised defence has the Magpies ready for all comers.
On Yallourn’s home ground, the Bombers will be hoping to claim a top of the table scalp, but it is going to be a tough ask, even with all players firing.
This one could go the wire.MGFL website
Both of these sides may not be able to make their way into finals calculations at end of year, but there may well be room, for just one of them.
To that end, the winner of this contest will stay in touch with the top end of the MGFL ladder, the other with a power of work to do even at the this early stage.
Morwell East, have a good spread of talent, but may will need a little more depth and although there is some real class within the side, they still appear “clunky” in their ball movement.
If the Hawks can get some rhythm going however, the season ahead looks bright.
Newborough are sill managing several new additions to their line up and coach Tom Hallinan probably wishes he had a couple more Jared Risols, as the good one he’s got is used to plug holes in other areas of his team.
The Bulldogs would be hoping to put up a better contest than that of last weekend when they were thumped by Yinnar, and they probably will for a period of time, but I’m tipping to make it three wins from their first four matches here.MGFL website
Trafalgar, one of only two unbeaten sides, would be hot favourites to beat the Panthers this week at home, and rightfully so.
But there are plenty of examples of teams who have built themselves up to perform on a particular day, only to fall flat in the following contest.
The Bloods have been super impressive in the opening rounds, none more so than in last weekends Anzac themed clash against rivals.
Coach Clint Eisendel, had always planned a fast start, culminating in a much needed win over the Blues.
With that win now in the bank, the test is now whether his side can back it up in a game they are expected to win, with another strong performance.
Yarragon, enjoyed last weeks success over Boolarra, but its in matches like this one against a league leader that with earn them the respect they are searching for.MGFL website
Season 2018 is turning into a nightmare for the Tigers and playing coach Josh Taylor.
You can’t find a hole in the coach’s message to his players or indeed the talented youngsters efforts, but winning is what its all about and with three rounds down, the reigning premiers are yet to win a game.
Thorpdale suffered their first defeat last week to Trafalgar, and the Blues will have their sights set on bouncing back to winning form immediately.
It might not be as easy as some may think however, as there were quite a few glimpses of what Mirboo North are capable of in the dying minutes of last weeks loss to Morwell East.
Jake Nash and Kris Berchtold were proving to be good go to targets and Taylor himself was lifting his side with voice and effort.
I havnt got the courage to tip the Tigers, even on their home ground, but I think if they want to stay in touch with those at the top, it has to happen soon.MGFL website
