THREE good wins for our day at Sale City wasn’t quite
what we had hoped for but we couldn’t have asked for
more from our senior boys who took the game right up to
the Dogs despite being severely undermanned.
Great to see our young fellas stepping up into senior
ranks and acquitting themselves so well.
Jessie Biemans was our seventh Thirds boy to make his
first 18 debut and ‘Bluey’ didn’t disappoint showing poise
beyond his years and looked right at home in senior com-
pany. Well done Blue.
Our Under 15 girls powered to a strong win and our
A grade girls were fabulous and are starting to reap the re-

Our Car Trial on Sunday was a great success with the
many teams competing having a great time whilst tootling
round the district.
There was an element of shenanigans in the competi-

running the trial and for Murray, Bassy and Darryl for their
help on the day.
Chloe Finn represented our league in last weekend’s

competition. Well done Chloe on making the league side.

WHAT a great day our Foot-
prints Foundation day was.
It was wonderful to see all
Wildcat and Heyfield players and
supporters embracing this event.
This year the focus of the
event shifted from fundraising
to awareness and we are sure the
message was delivered well to
anyone who had not been aware
of this amazing foundation which
supports families living with
breast cancer in our region.
The over 35’s netball match
between Heyfield and Wildcats
produced plenty of laughs and
cheers from the large crowd that
gathered to watch.
