Sprinklers forced an early finish to Friday night's Kangaroo Flat and White Hills football practice match.
The sprinklers came on early in the final quarter of the match at Epsom-Huntly Recreation Reserve.
"It wasn't ideal, but not much we could do about it,'' White Hills' coach Jack Fallon said.
"It was a shame because it was a fairly even game and we still had most of the last quarter to go.
"I was really happy with the way our boys were going about it. We had about six of our senior players missing, so some of the younger players were given an opportunity and they performed well."
The Demons have two more practice matches - Merbein at Sea Lake next Saturday and Kerang at a venue yet to be determined on March 26.
