Burras too strong for Roos


Broadford had a tough day at the office after a 20-goal loss to Diggers Rest at home on Saturday.

The loss is Broadford’s 10th of the season, which keeps them two games clear of the wooden spoon and two games back from eighth-placed Woodend Hesket.

Broadford were able to stay somewhat within reach in the first term, trailing by 27 points after kicking one goal to five.

The Kangaroos were only able to add three behinds in the second term while Diggers Rest added give more to lead by 55 points at half-time.

The punishment continued in the third term as the Burras held Broadford scoreless and added six more majors to their tally.

Broadford finally got back on the scoreboard in the final term, but it was too late as Diggers kicked another six goals to stroll to a win that drew the Burras level with ladder-leaders Romsey.
