Quarter by quarter, the Kilmore reserves team proved themselves to be a professional outfit, and too strong for their visitors. At the first quarter siren, Kilmore led by a crushing 22 points and Lalor was yet to score.

The show must go on, and to Kilmore’s credit they posted 49 points at halftime and still, Lalor had not scored a goal.

In wet and cold conditions, Kilmore played another strong quarter, finishing with a 96 point lead, and Lalor was scoreless.

And yes, you guessed it! Kilmore played excellent football right up to the final siren. Lalor finished the game with a zero score and Kilmore finished with 159 points.

The final score was 24.15 (159) to 0.0 (0).

The reserves remain on top of the NFNL ladder and are the team to beat for the 2024 season. Coach Leigh Egan said the team have been very successful this year.

“It was a very professional, clinical performance in very trying conditions. To be able to kick 24.15 and keep the opposition scoreless is just a testament to how much we can adapt as a team and why we have been so successful so far this year,” he said.

Best players were Michael Fenech, Cole Isbister, Emmett Clark, Thomas McMillan, Ben Maher, and Ryan McDonald.

Goal Kickers were Michael Fenech six, Emmett Clark five, Marcus Webb and Jake Hibbs-Hall three, and Josh Cumberland, Cole Isbister, Michael Shaw, Jack Stonehouse, Tyson Barton, Thomas McMillan, and Benjamin Doyle on one each.

Around the grounds, Epping defeated Mernda 11.9 (75) to 4.6 (30), and Heidelberg West defeated the Old Paradians 10.9 (69 to 5.7 (37). Ivanhoe defeated Reservoir at home, 9.10 (64) to 3.7 (25) and in a crushing loss, Old Eltham Collegians defeated Kinglake 16.15 (111) to 0.0 (0).

Kilmore has a bye next weekend, and will travel to play the Old Paradians on July 13.
