THE Bendigo Bank Western Border Football League saw just two games played on the weekend, as a result of the coronavirus outbreak in Victoria.

Casterton Sandford was to host East Gambier down at Island Park, with the game postponed and now pushed out to July.

WEST GAMBIER 12.5 (77) d MILLICENT 8.12 (60)

West Gambier came away with a comfortable win in the end, despite a scoreless first term against Millicent.

The Saints appeared to have the upper hand on their home ground, but the Roos changed all that in the second quarter as they banged on seven major scores to take a strong advantage into the third term.

It was only the final term where they Saints found their form again to run the game out, but it was too little, too late as the Roos bounded to victory.

Much of that came on the back of a five-goal haul to Garrett Ha, with Todd Lewis adding two.

For Millicent, Gene Robinson continued to build a lead in the goal-kicking stakes, with seven of the side’s eight goals.

SOUTH GAMBIER 11.10 (76) d NORTH GAMBIER 5.5 (35)

Over at Vansittart Park the home side was no match for the rampaging South Gambier.

North Gambier has been in up-and-down form this season, but no one has been able to come close to the Demons.

South sits eight points clear at the top of the ladder and that was not about to change on Saturday.

An even opening term suggested an entertaining contest, but it all changed in the blink of an eye as the Demons began to find their range in the second quarter and banged on six goals to the Tigers’ one.

The game slowed down again in the third term, but South picked up the pace in the final stanza to run out comfortable victors.

There was no particular focal point up forward, as Kym Eagleson and Brent Howard were the only multiple goal kickers for the Demons, with two goals each.

A long list of solo efforts filled the remainder of the scores.

At the other end of the ground only Luke Powell kicked multiple goals, with two for the Tigers.
