Junior Interleague Review- Football & Netball

A look through a successful junior Interleague carnival this week, as young boys and girls from throughout our region took on AFL Goldfields in both football and netball, as AFL Barwon retained the Bob Davis Trophy.



AFL Barwon- 4.11 (35)
AFL Goldfields  2.3 (15)

Best on ground- Charlie Valelonga (St Mary’s)

The youngest crop of AFL Barwon prodigy’s got past AFL Goldfields despite some inaccuracies. Geelong had 3.9 up to 3/4 time, before finishing with 4.11. This was largely cancelled out however by a stingy defense, which kept Goldfields scoreless in the first term and only allowing two goals for the entire game.
