It was a fairytale result for Dromana Tigers when they clipped the wings of Sorrento Gulls by the smallest of margins in the Jim’s Test & Tag Match of the Day Nepean League 2nd Semi-final fought out at R. J. Rowley Reserve in Rye on Saturday.
Andrew ‘Toe Punt’ Kelly and bro Adam ‘Short Pass’ provided an exciting last quarter broadcast, blasting the scores down the microphone for the Rye & District/Dromana Bendigo Community Bank scoreboard Dromana 12. 10. (82) to Sorrento 11. 15. (81).
The match score ended the dream for The Gulls to enter the Grand Final with The Tigers earning every inch of their victory to play in the ultimate match of the season.
In the first 10 minutes of the final quarter, Dromana trailed by 27 points and in true Tiger spirit, found inner strength and kicked the last 5 goals for a great outcome.
RPP FM Best on Ground, courtesy of Roger McMillan of Roger McMillan Real Estate, Dromana was awarded to Dromana player Daniel ‘Ducky’ Waddell who has shown great form throughout the year, being a major goal kicker and player towards the Tigers success.
The 2013 Nepean League Grand Final will be played on Saturday 7 September.
