Goalless

Dear Guru Spelly Swami,

On the weekend in an U/16's game Norwood whacked Westies 18.25 - 0.1. Was wondering how many times (particularly post WW1) a team had gone goalless in a match? Similarly, how does +42 rank in scoring shots differential?

Scrunch, I was at that game.

Westies kicked that point in the last 5 minutes of the game.

I was interested that West played their top 6 or 8 Under 16's players in the Under 18's trial that followed.

I think West's Reserves might have kicked only a point (or only a goal) in a Reserves game at Elizabeth in shocking conditions about 8 or 10 years ago. The League team played in the Riverland that weekend.

I played a game in Ammo's where we failed to score (I had a shot from 50 in the last minute and kicked it OOTF lol). Not a nice feeling.

14 times but none after 1913, and equal 6th for scoring shots
