Footscray have advanced to a VFL Preliminary Final after a stirring come-from-behind win over Essendon in the semi-final at North Port Oval in Port Melbourne. Trailing the Bombers by 18 points at the final change, the Bulldogs rallied, booting six goals to one in the final quarter to win 13.16.94 to 10.15.75.

The two sides met in the corresponding match last season with the Bombers getting the chocolates and it appeared he result would go the same way mid way through the third term. The Bombers scored four unanswered goals either side of half time and hit the front for the first time since just after the opening bounce early into the third thanks to a Sam Michael goal.

Bendigo’s Sam Crome, riding for the Avanti Isowhey Sports team for the first time, has taken out the 2016 Lakes Oil-Fulton Hogan Tour of the Great South Coast which finished in Portland last Sunday. The twenty-three-year-old took just an eleven second advantage over Lakes-Oil’s Benjamin Hill into the final stage criterium on the scenic waterfront circuit and held that margin all the way to the finish with his teammate, Ballarat’s Patrick Shaw, a further seven seconds back in third place.

Crome took over the Tour lead on the second stage around the Blue Lakes circuit in Mount Gambier on the opening day of racing. Conditions for that stage were deplorable as heavy rain and then a hail storm descended over the peloton mid-race and it appeared at one point that organisers had some concern over the completion to the stage.

Collingwood have advanced to a preliminary final after a commanding win over reigning premier Williamstown in the qualifying final of the Peter Jackson VFL at Ikon Park. The Pies jumped out of the blocks booting four goals to one in the first quarter and remained in control for the rest of the match winning 16.6.102 to 7.14.56.

Their only concerns are injuries to defender Jack Frost, skipper Jack Hellier and runner Ben Moloney who all failed to see out the match. Lachlan Howe and Jordan Collopy both booted three for the Magpies while Sam Dunnell was the only multiple goalkicker for the Seagulls with two.
