Quote of the Day:

"We thought they were showing signs of not responding well to the pressure, so there were certainly some opportunity for us to push ahead in the second half." - despite this observation from Ararat joint-coach David Hosking, the Rats were unable to overcome Dimboola, falling short by 26 points.
