Heathcote and District Football League

North Bendigo pinched a one-point thriller against Lockington-Bamawm United to effectively sew up the HDFL minor premiership.

The Bulldogs booted three unanswered goals in the final term to overrun the Cats, 10.9 (69) to 9.14 (68), on a heavy Lockington Recreation Reserve.

Mills (two goals), Ryan Alford and Jesse Evans were among North Bendigo’s best.
