Yarrawonga’s sizzling second half against Corowa-Rutherglen has smashed two league records.

The Pigeons’ 27 goals toppled Albury’s 24, while the 17-goal final term outranks the Tigers’ 15 against Benalla in 1998.

The Pigeons kicked 35.24 (234) to 7.6 (48).

But they were overshadowed by a potential serious knee injury to in-form midfielder Matt Gorman.

“I just spoke to Matt and we’re going to get him assessed in Melbourne on Monday,” co-coach Chris Kennedy said.

“Matt heard a crack, but we’ve got our fingers crossed.”

Jess Koopman roared back to form with nine goals.
