Gap to best remains

James Love starred for Bright, but couldn’t lift the Mountain Men into the Ovens and King Football League grand final.

A PRELIMINARY final appearance in any sport is a fair indication of a good season but despite Bright’s best efforts on Saturday, Milawa’s win proved, no matter how small it is, there is still a gap between the top two sides in the competition and the rest.

The Mountain Men were unable to end Milawa’s hopes of a third successive Ovens and King grand final date with Glenrowan, going down by 10 points at Tarrawingee.

Heading into the last quarter ahead by a point, Milawa lost its lead in the first minute of the period when Bright goal sneak Nathan Jones gathered the loose ball and scored his second major.

The Demons quickly regained their advantage when Steve Williamson hit up Tim Lewis for his fourth.
