Best win ever
There was a Shepparton connection to the breaking of one of country football’s longest ever droughts.
Bellarine Football League club Newcomb Power sang the team song for the first time since June 15, 2013 (1463 days between wins) on Saturday with a 16-point victory against Portarlington.
Former Shepparton Swans coach Hayden Best kicked a goal in the Power’s memorable win in his eighth senior game for the club.
The two-time Shepparton East premiership coach was pictured celebrating with teammates in the rooms in a cracking photo on the back page of Monday’s Geelong Advertiser.
