Open Grade Round 12 Roundup


Premier 1 Men

Last week Indians went down by one goal to Hutt United who scored from a late penalty corner, and on Saturday they were on the right side of a one-goal victory, in circumstances almost as dramatic. Indians were 3-0 up at half-time over Northern United who they had beaten 6-0 in the first round. Northern showed how much they have improved over the season scoring twice themselves while denying Indians any further goals and the men in blue were relieved to hear the final hooter. Victoria also demonstrated their improved play against Harbour City with both teams depleted by illness and representative commitments. Harbour scored early and led for most of the game before a last-ditch Vic attack result in a goal to level the scores.
