The Bendigo Football Netball League has struggled in its interleague trip to Warrnambool, with neither of its under 18 or senior representative football sides able to get a win against the Hampden Football Netball League.
Boasting two representatives from the Maryborough Football Netball Club in Connor O’Shea and Lachlan Bond, the BFNL’s under 18 side was well outclassed by a slick HFNL opponent, going down 11.10 (76) to 3.6 (24).
Playing in the forward line, Bond offered a marking target and physical presence and managed a shot on goal in the third quarter to be named in the side’s best players. O’Shea, meanwhile, had his hands full playing deep in Bendigo’s defence which was regularly under siege.
