Mount Evelyn vs Wandin always draws a crowd and Saturday was no exception with both supporter bases turning up in numbers.

It was Mt Evelyn who jumped out the gate kicking 5 of the first 6 goals with Wandin struggling to get their hands on the footy. But as quickly as they had started the momentum shifted, with Aaron Mullet and Jordan Jaworski the key drivers in Wandin kicking the next 6 goals and going into the quarter-time break with a 6-point lead. Wandin controlled the next two quarters but were unable to put away a resilient Mt Evelyn side who although down by 5 goals at three-quarter time never gave up and had the better of the last quarter.

Final score Mt Evelyn 13.6, 84 to Wandin, 15.10, 100. Top Dogs on the day were Aaron Mullett, Patrick Hodgett, Jordan Jaworski, Samuel Hodgett, Patty Bruzzese and Chayce Black.
