Mens Geelong District – Rd 7

The Last round of Mens Geelong District Pennant and Colac finished off the season well with two wins.  In Division Three, Colac still had the chance to make the final and with a 5/2 win over Barwon Heads at the Sands had to rely on other matches to see if they made it.  They fell just short with East Geelong securing a place in the final with a 4/3 win over Clifton Springs.  In Division Four, Colac recorded their best win of the season in defeating ladder leaders Winchelsea 4 matches to 3 at Torquay.
