The team now sits at number five on the ladder after the win.
Ellinbank coach Ben Wragg is, unsurprisingly, pleased with the victory.
“We were pretty happy with the result,” he told the Baw Baw Citizen.
“Buln Buln had the edge over us the last three encounters we’ve had with them, so I think with the position we’re in and our history with Buln (sic), we had a bit to prove and everyone embraced that.
“We had 21 contributors and I think, coming off the last couple of pretty solid weeks for us and getting some good numbers back from injury and whatever else, there’s a bit of a high around the place at the moment.
“We’ve just scraped into five, but we’ve got Poowong knocking the doors down.”
The result is a real turn-around for the team, which lost to Buln Buln by 34 points in Round 6.
“We’ve had a bit of a rough trot with injuries, and I think that first game against Buln we should never have lost,” Ben said.
“We had a bit of a nightmare run earlier on in the year but it’s all starting to shape up now.”
The upcoming match against reigning premiers Catani will be “game on.” Four of the top five teams are within six points of each other on the ladder, and Ben believes the final is anyone’s game at this stage.
