Cats claim back-to-back flags

LOCKINGTON-Bamawm United has won back-to-back Heathcote District Football League premierships after a 94-point rout of North Bendigo today.

In front of a massive crowd at Huntly that paid a record gate of $43,000, the Cats dominated from start to finish to win 21.14 (140) to 7.4 (46) in a flawless display.

Jarrod Bacon, Lachlan Collins and coach Kahl Oliver kicked three goals each for the Cats.

For the Bulldogs, Ryan Alford battled hard all day through the midfield and in defence.

The Bulldogs also named Ash Craig, Rob Morris, Jordan Ford, Cheatley medallist Josh Gitsham and full-back Cameron Lomas in theit best.

Michael Spooner kicked three of their goals to finish the season with 106.

In the A-grade netball, Mount Pleasant defeated Colbinabbin in a one-goal thriller, 53-52.

Colbinabbin stormed back into the game after trailing by 12 goals at one stage, before its comeback fell agonisingly short.
