Wickliffe-Lake Bolac’s Jhye Kenna continued his domination of the Mininera District Football League reserves competition, winning his third consecutive DJ Martin medal as the league’s best and fairest.
Kenna has won the last two best and fairests, adding a third this season.
He polled 25 votes to finish three ahead of Woorndoo-Mortlake’s Tim MacDonald. MacDonald came home with a wet sail, recording 14 of his 22 votes in the final six rounds of the season.
Tatyoon’s Tim Lillis finished third with 17 votes.
“I didn’t expect to win to be honest, I didn’t have the year I had the last few years so it was a bit of a surprise,” Kenna said.
“Having a good ruckman and teammates around me helps me get the footy and stand out a bit.”
Wickliffe-Lake Bolac was eliminated in the preliminary final last weekend, going down by three points to SMW Rovers.
“It was tough falling just short but hopefully our seniors get up this weekend,” Kenna said.
The Magpies picked up another reserves award on Monday night, with Pat Millear named the reserves umpire of the year.
Moyston-Willaura’s James Dalkin won the goalkicking award with 64 Goals. He will be hoping to add a premiership medal to his trophy cabinet when the Pumas take on SMW Rovers in this weekend’s grand final.
