The Western Magpies Division 4 team aka the Woodsmen have had a gutsy win over close rivals Morningside under what can only be described as dim conditions at Morningside on Friday week ago.
The win may be enough to secure a home Elimination Final against the same opponent on Friday night..
The Woodies won despite a number of injuries and at one stage the umpire checked the numbers before he bounced the ball after a goal and told of skipper Andrew Thomson that the team did not have a 6-6-6- formation, to which "Thommo" replied , "We only have 17 on the ground so how would you like us to line up?"
2.2-14 | 4.5-29 | 6.5-41 | 8.6-54
