Rosebud and Dromana faced off in a classic “8 point game” in RPP FM's Match of The Day, with local bragging rights on the line.
Rosebud started the better of the two sides, using a relentless attack on the football and slick ball movement to propel themselves to a 20 point 1/4 time lead.
Dromana responded with renewed effort in the 2nd Quarter but missed some critical chance in front of the sticks, however the Tigers were still able to reduce their deficit to trail by 14 points at Half Time.
The second half was a low scoring affair with the story of the Half once again being the missed chances from Dromana. Rosebud were able to respond to every challenge and run out 16 point winners.
