HOWLONG’S Odd Socks day is going from strength to strength.
Saturday’s seventh annual event raised a record $2940 for headspace Albury-Wodonga in memory of former player Aimee Koehler.
Club spokeswoman Jess Hancock said the day was a huge success.
“We usually hold our Odd Socks day against Henty but we don’t play Henty at home this season so we switched to an Osborne game,” Hancock said.
“It went really well.”
Hancock and Bron McCormack starred in Howlong’s 35-28 victory over an emerging Osborne who have been on the receiving end of a string of narrow losses.
It was the Spiders’ third win.
Big improvers Murray Magpies and Jindera played a 29-all draw.
Undefeated Billabong Crows defeated Holbrook 47-32, Brock-Burrum accounted for CDHBU 55-22, Lockhart beat Henty 43-23 and Rand-Walbundrie-Walla edged out Culcairn 39-31.
