HDFNL 2010-17 – football wins tight at the top

JUST 14 wins separate the top four clubs for most  home and away football victories in the Heathcote District league over the past eight years.

DAY TO SAVOUR: Lockington-Bamawm United celebrates its 2011 senior grand final win over Heathcote by six points. The Cats won all three football flags that day.

DAY TO SAVOUR: Lockington-Bamawm United celebrates its 2011 senior grand final win over Heathcote by six points. The Cats won all three football flags that day.

Since 2010 White Hills has won 236 football games across its senior, reserves and under-17 football teams to be ranked No.1.

The Demons sit at the top of what is a logjam, with Leitchville-Gunbower (230), Lockington-Bamawm United (225) and North Bendigo (222) all closely following behind.

As well as having won the most home and away games, the Demons are also the leaders for most football teams in finals with 19.

However, when it comes to football premierships won over the past eight seasons, it’s LBU that has been the clear standout.

The Cats have won eight football premierships since 2010, which includes the seniors four-peat between 2011 and 2014 when they won 65 of 74 games.

The Cats have also won a pair of reserves and under-17 flags through the past eight years.

And in one memorable season in 2011 they won all three, becoming the first HDFL club since Stanhope in 1976 to do so.

However, the Cats’ success has dried up recently, with the club now having gone three seasons without any football premiership.

Leitchville-Gunbower and North Bendigo have each won four football premierships over the past eight years – the Bombers with one in the seniors and three in the under-17s; the Bulldogs with the full set of seniors (two), reserves (one) and under-17s (one).

Huntly and Elmore are the only clubs throughout the past eight seasons not to have won a football premiership.
