Fri. 20 May ’16 – Women’s SWDLGA Pennant Div 6 at East Geelong

Apollo Bay Women’s team won their match but it wasn’t quite enough to win them the pennant flag unfortunately. However, they did very well, finishing only 3 games behind the winner (Anglesea) 25/5/10- Apollo Bay 22/8/10. Congratulations Anglesea and well done to our team!
