Maffra defeated Drouin in the 2010 Gippsland Football League grand final. The Gippsland Football League, officially the Gippsland League, is the only major Australian rules football competition in the Gippsland region according to the Victorian Country Football League.

Maffra finished on top of the ladder and won through to the grand final by winning the second semi final against Traralgon, their only match for the finals series.

Drouin finished fourth on the ladder and qualified by defeating Leongatha in the elimination final, Morwell in the first semi final and Traralgon in the preliminary final.

Scores are quoted as goals-behinds (total).

Background

Wonthaggi joined the league after five years in the Alberton Football League

The Gippsland League traces it roots to the Central Gippsland Football League of the 1930’s. More recently, it is a merger of the Gippsland Latrobe Valley and West Gippsland leagues and was known as the West Gippsland Latrobe Football League.

“When you say the Gippsland League, people talk about the distance from Wonthaggi to Maffra (170km),” GL General Manager Chris Soumilas told the Weekly Times, discussing travelling times for teams. “They don’t say from Drouin to Moe (40km), or from Moe to Traralgon (32km). Most of our clubs do have the majority of our games within an hour’s drive, but from one end of the league to the other, travel is an issue.”

At the league’s annual general meeting in December, it changed it’s name from the West Gippsland Latrobe Football League. At the same meeting, Wonthaggi joined the GL after dominating the Alberton Football League during the past decade. The Power made five consecutive Alberton Grand Finals winning three, losing only to Yarram (2007) and Stony Creek (2009).

Wonthaggi Power Football Club is a result of a merger between Wonthaggi Blues, a former Gippsland FL team, and Wonthaggi Rovers, an Alberton FL team. In February, the Gippsland Football League announced that Wonthaggi would be changing their uniforms, because their original one was similar to that of Warragul.

Towards the end of the season, Moe had to transfer a game from Yallourn North due to that ground not coping with the stress of hosting extra games. “[T]he Yallourn Nth ground is not coping with the extra Moe home games and the wetter than normal winter,” said Soumilas in an email to First XV News. They played their last home game in Yalourn Noth.

The Ladder

Moe needed to defeat Leongatha by more than 100 points in round 18 to make the finals. The failed.

For the second time this season, Leongatha defeated Gippsland Football League heavyweights Traralgon. Playing at home, they went on to win by sixteen points.

The Gippsland Football League, officially the Gippsland League, is the only major Australian rules football competition in the Gippsland region according to the Victorian Country Football League.

Scores are quoted as goals-behinds (total); or goals, behinds. Goals are worth six points, behinds worth one.

Leongatha lead at every change, first by 31 points, then 25 points and 51 points. They kicked five goals, two behinds to a single behind in the first quarter; one goal one hind to two goals, one behind in the second; and four goals, three behinds to one behind in the third.

The final quarter saw Traralgon fight back and come within three goals of taking an unlikely victory. They managed to kick seven goals to Leongatha’s, one goal, one behind to end the day losing by 16 points, 11–7 (73) to 9–3 (57).

Around the grounds, Drouin kicked three more behinds than the aggregate of the match described above as they defeated Sale in Sale 20–13 (133) to 17–8 (110), an inaccurate Maffra defeated a dismal Warragul in Warragul 13–26 (104) to 1–3 (9) and Moe traveled to Morwell to defeat the hosts 17–13 (115) to 11–17 (83).
