CREEK BAG BRAGGING RIGHTS
Swifts Creek have secured the battle for third spot on the ODFNL ladder with a hard fought 14 point win over Omeo-Benambra.
The Alpine Ranges hit the scoreboard early and held a two goal lead at 1/4 time. They then built on that lead, kicking 5.0 to 3.4 in the second quarter to carry a 20 point lead into the main break.
But the second half belonged to the Demons. In the third term, the home side held OB to 1.4 for the quarter - while kicking 4.2 themselves - reeling back the margin to 4 points at the last break.
The home side then ran over the visitors, kicking 4.5 to 1.5 to secure a hard fought win leading into the finals.
Swifts Creek was well serviced by Nathan Fehst who kicked 5 goals and Dylan Hack who was named the best player for the Demons.
Omeo-Benambra's Brandon Betts continued his hot goal kicking form with 4, while Nao Fujita was named the best player for the Mountain Men.Gippsland Footy admin
BATTLE OF THE WOODEN SPOON ENDS ABRUPTLY
Buchan were reasonably well on top of Swan Reach in a game that would see the winner avoid the wooden spoon.
With the Cavemen leading by 36 points - roughly 17 minutes into the second quarter - an scuffle on-field grew too much for the umpires who decided to call off the game.
The niggle was on early in the game, with a Swan Reach player being sent off with a yellow card in the first two minutes of the game. Spot fires appeared throughout the game, which ultimately grew into the one that ended the match prematurely.
An investigation into the incident by Omeo District Football Netball League is now underway.
Before the game ended, Buchan's Justin Hunt managed to snag four goals and receive best player honours for the Cavemen.
For Swan Reach, their two goals came from Wayne Hayes and Sam Tindley-Roe, while Ivan Hood was a shining light in the backline.Gippsland Footy admin
