League Review | Done and dusted! Eighteen home and away rounds completed for the first time since 2019, and a fascinating four weeks of finals action is upon us in the SS&A OMFNL.
All three contenders for the final two positions in the football top five had wins, but it was Wangaratta Rovers and Myrtleford who will progress into finals. Lavington, despite having the same number of wins as Myrtleford, missed out on percentage. From third-placed Albury, to sixth-placed Lavington, just one game separated the four teams. The Panthers late season run has put them in a good position to develop it further into 2023, they will look back on a costly last-minute loss to Yarrawonga way back on Easter Sunday.
Myrtleford, after a sluggish start against the speedy Roo’s, settled into some excellent football to run away with a 63-point win with Riley Bouker and Riley Sharp both booting five goals. Corowa Rutherglen led by three goals at quarter time, before the Saints kicked eighteen of the last twenty-three goals to lock in finals.
