On Saturday, the Kilmore Football Netball Club (KFNC) played the Old Eltham Collegians in round 10 for the second half of the season.

The seniors lifted midway into the first quarter, kicking three consecutive goals and they maintained their lead in a low-scoring second and third term. Early in the last quarter, the Collegians caught up but Kilmore quickly responded with back-to-back goals at the five minute mark.

Counting too many defenders and determined to spoil four opportunities for the opposition to make a comeback, the Seniors won by 10 points.

“We were determined to play our way, one quarter at a time. Our contested footy from the start to the end was super. Josh Coe in the ruck was unbelievable. In the last quarter, they missed their shots,” he said.
