Round 3 of the Omeo & District FNL takes place this Saturday 24th April, with all senior games scheduled to start at 2pm.
BUCHAN vs LINDENOW SOUTH
Two early close losses have left the Cavemen on the back foot early in the season, while the Swampies are looking good with a solid opening hit out against Swan Reach and a 1-point loss to the currently undefeated Swifts Creek.
Buchan will want to use this as an opportunity to get their season started for the year, with Kane Sparkes being influential so far.
Meanwhile Lindenow South will be keen to continue their good form, with coach Nathan Pollard and Mitchell Neal leading from the front so far.
SWAN REACH vs BRUTHEN
The Swans have not come out firing from the blocks early this year. Losing margins of 69 and 152 points this early on could suggest they are in for another long year. However their Bulldog opponents were lackluster in their opening game as well, despite making up for it last week.
Swan Reach has had consistent output from the likes of Jack Wheatfill so far but will need a few more helpers if they are to trouble their more favoured opponents.
After a bit of a shock Round 1 result that saw them only kick 1 goal for the entire game, Bruthen bounced back with a hard fought win over Buchan last week. Damon Steed, Cec Matthews and Jay Robbie all in fine form so far.
SWIFTS CREEK vs OMEO-BENAMBRA
Who will be king of the hill after Saturday? With both these sides undefeated after the opening two rounds, it will be interesting to see where both these sides stand after the final siren.
The Demons have had to fight hard for their wins, with a two goal victory over Buchan and a 1-point decider over Lindenow South putting them in good stead early days. Max Solomon has been more than handy in front of the big sticks, while Harold Hood has been a handy contributor.
The Alpine Ranges on the other hand, have dealt out deadly wins with big margins. In a low scoring affair, they defeated reigning premier Bruthen by 48 points and smacked Swan Reach by 152 points respectively. Campbell Ahsam has been a big focal point in front of goal, while Riley Steenholdt and Beau Haslam have been in sparkling form.
