It was a difficult game for the home team with wet conditions worsening late in the game, but club vice president Di Lehman is pleased with how the young lineup is progressing.
“We had the majority of the play in the third and fourth quarter, but when the ground’s like this it’s extremely difficult to score,” Di told the Baw Baw Citizen after the game.
“But they should be proud of themselves and the way they played.”
When Drouin last faced Bairnsdale in Round 3, the team lost 10.8-68 to 23.17-155.
Drouin’s improvement has Di confident the side can now win against teams it lost to earlier in the season.
“I think one of our goals is to win those games we should have won in the first half of the year. You know, Morwell, Wonthaggi, those sort of younger sides,” Di said.
“To win those games that we’ve only lost by a handful of points, they’re the ones we want to turn around.”
Drouin will next face Warragul, a team they beat in Round 4, on Sunday 15 July at Western Park.
