BAD DOSE OF WEATHER FOR RE­SERVES

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - BEYOND THE BOUNCE -

Drouin re­serves floun­dered in Satur­day’s wet and windy con­di­tions.

It rained for most of the game against Maf­fra and a heavy down­pour that lasted about 10 min­utes from the start of the third quar­ter put paid to any thoughts of slick foot­ball.

Maf­fra han­dled the go­ing bet­ter to pre­vail 6-9 to 1-7, Jay­den Fair­lie snar­ing Drouin’s goal with a snap­shot nine min­utes into the fi­nal term.

Best for the Hawks on the day were Matt Ri­d­ley, Jye Mitchell, Sam Rip­pon, Kur­tis Harper, Joe Collins and Fair­lie.

Drouin re­serves don’t have a game next week at Bairns­dale and will have a bit of ex­tra time to re­or­gan­ise for the clash with War­ragul on Sun­day, April 29, at Drouin.
