Best win ever
FOOTBALL: There was a Shepparton connection to the breaking of one of country football’s longest ever droughts.
Bellarine Football League club Newcomb Power sang the team song for the first time since June 15, 2013 (1463 days between wins) on Saturday with a 16-point victory against Portarlington.
Former Shepparton Swans coach Hayden Best kicked a goal in the Power’s memorable win in his eighth senior game for the club.
The two-time Shepparton East premiership coach was pictured celebrating with teammates in the rooms in a cracking photo on the back page of Monday’s Geelong Advertiser.
CRICKET: An important meeting will occur on Monday to discuss proposed rules changes for the future of Cricket Shepparton.
The meeting, at Mooroopna’s Parsons Cricket Pavillion from 7pm, is open to all Cricket Shepparton players, umpires and team mangers.
There will be a review of the competition’s rule book and a look at the proposed rule changes from the Laws of Cricket.
Cricket Shepparton had its annual meeting last month, with David D’Elia continuing as president and Michael Van Dorsser to remain as senior cricket director.
BASKETBALL: Shepparton export Maddie Garrick continues to dominate the SEABL at her new club Kilsyth.
Garrick shone in the ladder-leading Cobras’ 68-52 victory against Sandringham on Saturday, having a double-double with 21 points (game high) and 10 rebounds, as well as dishing off five assists.
She is averaging 18.8 points and 7.3 rebounds a game across 13 appearances for the Cobras this season.
But Kilsyth will be without her from next week when the Melbourne Boomers star jets off to Phoenix, Arizona as part of a 21-strong Australian Opals squad.
