Outside chance for Drysdale player to boot 100 in a season
August 8, 2022 / 9:38 pm
Mat Hebbard has given himself a sniff of becoming the first Drysdale player since Adam Richardson in 2003 to kick 100 goals in a season after slamming home eight in the Hawks’ 36-point win over Modewarre at Community Bank Oval.
Hebbard has kicked 87 goals for the season, and with Drysdale to play at least two finals, he is an outside chance of cracking the ton.
The Hawks were made to work for their 16.11 (107) to 11.5 (71) victory, only cracking the Warriors in the final term.
As well as Hebbard, defender Tev Nofi and co-coach Tom Ruggles were standouts for Drysdale.
Connor Joseph’s fine home-and-away season finished on 66 goals after he kicked four for Modewarre, with 200-gamer Brendan Wemyss contributing two.
