Longwood Football Club breaks drought, then wins again

KDFLLONGWOOD Football Club has gone back-to-back with wins in the Kyabram District Football League.

But unlike two weeks ago, when it won by 123 points against Undera, the Redlegs came from behind at three-quarter time on Saturday to win by 26 points against Rushworth.

It was Longwood’s first back-to-back wins since joining the league in 2010.

“We go into every game thinking we can win it,” an ­excited coach Nick Brown said.

“We had our four first-choice forwards out, so we mixed and matched our forward line a little bit and changed a few things up, so we were a bit more unpredictable than normal.”

Meanwhile Thornton Eildon won its first game since Round 18, 2015 — a wait of 714 days — when it beat Yea on Saturday by nine points in AFL Yarra Ranges Senior Football Division 2.
