B GRADE FOOTBALL Rosebud Checked by Dromana ROSEBUD entertained Dromana on the home ground on Saturday last. The visitors were at full strength but Rosebud was badly handicapped by the absence of Fred Jennings and T. Chadwick, two of their best all round players, also that Hec. Downing's ankle gave way again in the second half. The game, which was very even, was never very exciting. The visitors scored 4-4 in the first quarter but did not score a goal in the second or third quarters. The score on the board at half time was Dromana 4-8, Rosebud 5-1. The visitors were then leading by 1 point. The third quarter was all in favor of the home side who finished up with a 10 point lead.
