The last round of the 2019 Home & Away games is against Mornington at home and by any bodies standards we have had a super first season in Division one and are looking forward to a successful final series.
Our trip to Bonbeach last Saturday started badly as for the first time in many years we had to forfeit a game. Lack of numbers due to absences and injury meant we were unable to field an U19s team. Our reserves team also went in to their game one short as well which was not ideal. Bonbeach adapted to their home ground conditions better than we did and apart from the first quarter were outscored when the opposition had the wind advantage.
Dromana seniors was a very different team to the one fielded against Pines in the previous round and given the conditions we knew we were in for a tight game. Bonbeach lead at quarter and three quarter time after kicking with the wind but only by 7 and 5 points respectively. At halftime Dromana were up by 5 points so it was all down to the last quarter with Dromana having the wind advantage. Bonbeach tried hard driving the ball deep into their forward line repeatedly and extended their lead to 11 points, a game high, then Dromana hit back but were managing only points but persistence eventually paid off and Dromana grabbed the lead going on to win by 4 points. Though a low scoring affair it was a game either team could have won with Bonbeach scoring18 times to Dromana’s 12, as has happened in a few games this season Dromana found a way to win when they appeared beaten.
