Who said Nagambie-Avenel derbies were getting tamer? Certainly not under-18 players Bo Kelly (Nagambie) and Kayd Paine (Avenel) who spent time on the sidelines after being yellow-carded by umpire Glen Loraine for their part in this stoush.

The Lakers also went in without some key players, but the visitors had less depth and sorely missed Don Stirling, Kasey Duncan, Cameron Gillett and Matt Dundon.
The latter’s brother Nick, these days at Coburg, made the trip up to play with two other brothers Mick and Tim.
