The visit by Daylesford to Skipton this week saw our Under 12s try hard but suffer their first defeat this season. A very good Daylesford outfit kept Skipton scoreless for the first time in a long time. Coach Draffin and helpers kept the positive encouragement going all game but the efforts couldn’t match the Daylesford class. Skipton 0.0-0 to Daylesford 7.10-52. Pinky’s Pizza went to George Wills and Skipcoin to Harry Collins .

Skipton lost to Daylesford, 3.3-21 to 9.6-60. Lachie Parker and Josh Grist received the awards. Calcutta syndicates with Kirby and Lachie Parker are in the money.

The Senior game saw Skipton struggle with team work early, not kicking a goal until half way through the second quarter, with the defence playing well but under pressure. Things started to click for Skipton after half time, with our side gradually increasing the pressure. At the three quarter time break it seemed the ga
