Match Report

Brunswick NOBSPC’s attempt to claim back-to-back top-four scalps came unstuck at the hands of a well-drilled St Mary’s Salesian in wild winds at Gillon Oval on Saturday.

The Saints were irresistible for much of the first-half as they adapted best to the difficult conditions, dominating the contested ball and inside-50 counts, but their inaccuracy meant we were still within touching distance at the main break.

Unfortunately two quick goals at the start of the third quarter would give the Saints a lead that could not be overcome, despite us kicking seven of the last ten goals of the game.

Consistent four-quarters performers were hard to find, dictated largely by the conditions which created a disjointed game, but Danny King’s improving form was rewarded with being awarded our best player. Jayden Tilbrook showed he is a tough and classy defender, while key midfielders Geremie Ganino, with inside grunt and a couple of goals, and Chris Horsley, with outside run, were again very good. Scott Thomas was a welcome return in the ruck while Nick Kelly and Aiden Pollock continue to work hard.

Ormond away is always a tough assignment but the rewards are huge if we can upset them this week. See you at Gunn Reserve.
