Drysdale has ended Torquay’s season-long unbeaten streak in the BFNL with a one-point upset (76 – 75) at McCartney Oval on Saturday.

Torquay is still guaranteed the minor premiership, with only one round remaining, but the defeat shows they could again have a fight on their hands in the finals.

Seventh-placed Queenscliff also had surprising upset win over third-placed Barwon Heads by only three points at Howard Harmer Oval.

The Seagulls kept the Coutas goalless in the first quarter, but the tables turned in the second, with the Coutas kicking 6.3 to the Gulls 1.1.

The third quarter saw a very even competition, while the Gulls outscored the Coutas in the fourth but were unable to reel them in during the last nail-biting minutes, finishing 12.14 (86) to 13.11 (89).

Anglesea and Modewarre remain in fourth and fifth respectively, after both had strong wins.

The Roos beat Ocean Grove by 29 points (88 – 59) at Ellimatta Reserve, while the Warriors demoralised Newcomb by 48 points (127 – 79) at Community Bank Oval, Mt Moriac.

Modewarre hosts Anglesea this weekend and a win would see the Warriors lock-in a finals spot, with sixth-placed Geelong Amateurs needing an unlikely win against second-placed Drysdale on Saturday to be a chance of sneaking in.

Drysdale and Barwon Heads will clash in a Qualifying Final regardless of results.
