The Ovens and Murray Football League was seven rounds in when Victoria's COVID lockdown struck. The Border Mailwill count down the best seven moments. Here's number two.
Wangaratta Rovers were kicking into a fierce breeze in the final quarter against Myrtleford on May 15.
While it was too early in the season to say the winner would seal a top three finish, it would certainly help.
Rovers held a nine-point lead, but the Saints dominated territory, due to the wind, where players could barely kick 40m.
The home team needed a circuit-breaker.
"I kicked the ball out from fullback to 'Gatto' (Shane Gaston) and he gave the handball to Jack (Gerrish) and away he went," team-mate Tyson Hartwig recalled.
"That was the perfect solution to kicking against the breeze."
Gerrish had five bounces and hit Tyler Cornish with a pass 15m out.
"When he runs forward with the ball, he can take it 120m (with the run and kick), he ran from one 50m arc to the other," Hartwig praised.
