THE Hills Football Association had a general bye last week to coincide with the Landmark Country Football Carnival.
While the HFA haven’t had a team in for a couple of years, they continue with the bye on the off chance they might be able to generate enough interest and sponsorship to enter a team.
This year the Western Australian Country Football League formed a team called the Regional Allstars which was made up by players from leagues that didn’t enter a team in the carnival.
Jack Holley (Mt Helena) and Eli Michon (Chidlow) represented the HFA and their clubs in the Allstars team.
The team competed in third division and were unlucky missing out on the final by percentage.
Currently Chidlow sit undefeated at the top of the ladder, followed by Mundaring, Pickering Brook and Gidgegannup.
Mt Helena’s season is still alive sitting fifth on equal points with Gidgegannup.
Parkerville and Bullsbrook have done it tough this year with only one win each but can still have a say in the make up of the bottom end of the four.
Several players are in contention for the leading goal scorer with three almost equal at the top.
The fairest and best count should be a very close affair with some outstanding individual efforts so far.
This week we have a double header at Chidlow with the first game, Chidlow versus Mt Helena.
Bullsbrook versus Gidgegannup will kick off at 2.30pm.
In the other match, Mundaring host Pickering Brook at 2pm.
