Darras and Meres play off under lights
SOUTH West District Football League action returns under lights tonight with Heathmere hitting the road in search of a win against Tyrendarra in round three.
In a start to the season very few predicted Heathmere will arrive at tonight’s contest with momentum after collecting consecutive victories against Dartmoor and Cavendish to start the season.
Heathmere has spread the workload well so far with the backline holding up well under attack, Joel Nagorcka dominating in the ruck and coach Matt Lenehan and assistant coach Mick Wilson kicking plenty of goals.
For Tyrendarra 2017 has so far been an uphill battle after going through last season undefeated, beaten by Coleraine and Branxholme-Wallacedale.
Despite the tough start the Darras have had some clear highlights, with captain Tye O’Connell starring in the midfield in both games while the defensive structure has worked hard in both games to limit opposing offensive opportunities.
