The Castlemaine Magpie sides made the trek north to Dower Park to tackle Kangaroo Flat on Saturday as part of the Bendigo Football Netball League’s Round 7 Indigenous Round fixture.

The Castlemaine Seniors proudly took to the ground in their Indigenous Round guernseys fresh from the two weeks’ rest and ready to fire.

They did just that opening their account with a four-goal first term effort, while keeping the Roos to one solitary point, to hold a 26-point advantage at quarter-time.

Flat bounced back in the second term but were never able to make up for lost ground and Castlemaine ultimately went on to claim the shield with a 43-point win.

Zachary Greeves was outstanding kicking three, and coach Michael Hartley once again led from the front kicking two.
