However the determined Sorell never gave up, kicking 3.4 to New Norfolk’s four behinds to snatch the game with just minutes to play.

Hayden Smith continued to show what he can do, crumbing the pack, in and under, he did it all. Co-captain Jordan Eiszele again put on a great show of skill and poise. His consistency week in, week out is a real credit.
