Demons, Blues all tied up at White Hills

SCORES were locked on 41-all when the whistle was blown to end the A-grade netball clash between White Hills and Mount Pleasant in Saturday’s sixth round of the Bendigo Bank Heathcote District Football Netball League season.

It was a memorable showdown between the Demons and Blues at Tint-A-Car in Scott Street, White Hills.

Although bitterly disappointed not to have claimed all four points, Mount Pleasant marked its best performance of the season.

The Blues have endured a topsy-turvy run.

After a bye in round one, Mounts were beaten at Elmore by 38 goals, fought back to win at home against Lockington Bamawm United by 14 goals, and were then beaten at Huntly by five goals.

A draw at White Hills ended a terrible run  for Mount Pleasant in the Demons den.

Colbinabbin showed it’s a force to be reckoned with in the premiership race.

The Grasshoppers dominated Saturday’s clash on North Bendigo’s court at Hibo Hotel Oval in Atkins Street.

Colbinabbin scored 74 goals and was ruthless in defence as it held North Bendigo to 36, it’s lowest tally this year.

The Elmore Bloods showed no mercy for Leitchville Gunbower at Degroot Roof Painting Oval in Leitchville.

A 77-22 result was Elmore’s highest winning margin so far.

Huntly outplayed Lockington Bamawm United at Specialist Breeders Australia Oval in Huntly’s Strauch Reserve.

The Hawks won 52-28.

Heathcote had the bye.
