    The Magpies dominated much of the match and could have won by a significantly greater margin, but for inaccuracy – finishing the game with 32 scoring shots to Myrtleford’s 14.

    The wind was a factor, with a breeze blowing across the ground ensuring the majority of the play was conducted at the clubrooms end.
