Ballarat Storm Day
Round 12 was a historical day for the club in that our Senior teams wore the Storm jumpers for the first time. This new junior club that the BFNC has established will eventually field teams in all Junior Football & Netball grades, with the purpose to give more children in the Greater Alfredton region the opportunity to play under the Ballarat Football Netball Club brand.
Although the results didn’t go our way in the Senior game, a big crowd was in attendance with our Junior teams playing on Alfredton No. 2.

The Ballarat Courier Report
David Brehaut and Michael Hankin
East Point cruised past Ballarat and into the BFL top six at Alfredton on Saturday. With Melton South losing to Sebastopol, East Point climbed over the Panthers on percentage and within a game of fifth-placed Sunbury. The Kangaroos now have the challenge of keeping it with tough assignments against Redan (fourth) and Darley (third) in the next two rounds.
There was plenty to like about East Point’s dismissal of Ballarat by 37 points, with it being able to counter the Swans’ hard overlap running. Ballarat kicked the opening two goals inside fives minutes, but then dried up. East Point kept the Swans goalless until 10 minutes into the third quarter and by then the game was being played on East’s terms.
Clay Bilney and Hasker Dawborn were again prominent youngsters for the Roos, while Charlie Lee imposed himself on the game on his return from the VFL and Daniel Tung also impacted.
Grant Baldwin suffered a knee injury in his second game for Ballarat.
