2020 marks 30 years since the Campbells Creek Football Netball Club made the history books with a legendary 100 goal haul against Primrose Football Club in the Maryborough Castlemaine District Football League (MCDFNL) on June 23, 1990.
While the Coronavirus pandemic has put a halt on Creek’s 30th anniversary celebrations, planned for next week, the club is extremely proud to still retain its Guinness World Record for the highest score kicked in an Aussie Rules game three decades after that fateful day.
The club’s senior team booted a staggering 100 goals and 34 points to score a massive total of 634 points and register a 616 point victory rival Primrose 3-9 (18).
The effort saw 16 goal kickers in the 20 man squad contribute to the score.
Campbells Creek FNC secretary Marg Stevens said they while they are disappointed they can’t follow up their 10 year and 20 year reunions with a 30 year event, it is still a feat they can be incredibly proud of.
Campbells Creek also held second spot on the Top 10 Highest Scores list up until 2019 when Greater Western FNC knocked them down to third position.
“It’s pretty amazing to still hold two spots in the top 10,” Stevens said. See the Mail for the full story. Out Now.
