STORY AND PHOTOS by Daniel Cohen, Casino’s own AFL credentialed sports photographer at DC Sports Photography
It was another terrific win for the Casino Lions Australian Football Club over their mascot-namesakes from the Nambucca Valley.
The Lions got the early jump, but a surge before half time saw the visitors pinch a one point lead into the main break.
The Casino Lions pulled together for a solid second half, running away in the final quarter to record a 5-goal win.
The final scores were Casino Lions 9.11.65 d Nambucca Valley Lions 5.3.33.
Onward to the finals for the Casino Lions. This is a fantastic story for the club, having reformed in 2021 after 12 years out of the competition.
