Maffra match moved

THE Gippsland League board has approved a request from the Maffra and Leongatha football-netball clubs to reschedule their abandoned netball games from round 12.

The original matches were cancelled because of severe flooding at Maffra Recreation Reserve on July 9, and will now be played at the Agnes Brereton Reserve netball courts in Traralgon on Sunday, August 14.

The request to reschedule the games was discussed during Wednesday night’s league board meeting. Chairman Greg Maidment said all such cases were considered on their individual merits.

Despite the best efforts of the board and clubs, the corresponding football matches were unable to be rescheduled and will continue to be classified as draws, with each team issued two premiership points and no change to their percentage.

Round 15 began on Saturday with Leongatha too strong for Warragul, winning 54-25 at Western Park.

The rest of the round will be played next Saturday with, Sale heading to Bairnsdale and Maffra travelling to Moe.
