After 6 rounds Norwood sat bottom on the ladder and given, they were coming up against eighth on the ladder Chirnside, this undoubtedly was a great win for the Norwood side.

But the third quarter was game defining from Norwood who blew out to a ten goal lead with the final quarter to come, a margin which proved too big to come back from for Chirnside.
This now sits Chirnside in ninth and sees Norwood move up to 12th on the ladder.
