Tigers roar with important win as Demons handed second loss of season

South Gambier v North Gambier

North Gambier dished South its second loss of the season, defeating the Dees at Blue Lake Sports Park on Saturday.

The first quarter was a close battle with both sides getting on the board with two goals, giving the Tigers a one-point lead at quarter time.

The intense battle continued in the second term as neither side was able to pull away in another heavily defensive quarter.

Both sides only kicked a goal each, however the Dees grabbed the lead as they headed into the break with a two point buffer.

The scoring ramped up in the third term as both sides’ backlines began to break down.

The Tigers had a big quarter, kicking three goals with the Dees not too far behind them with two.

As the teams went to their huddles to prepare for the final quarter, North had reason to be confident, holding a five point lead heading into the deciding quarter.

Both teams continued to score in the fourth quarter as they looked to make one final push for victory.

The Dees put another two goals on the board but it was not enough as the Tigers had another three goal quarter which helped them seal the victory and pick up the big road win.

North Gambier’s Toby de Wit had another solid game for the Tigers, kicking four goals in the big time win.

North Gambier defeated South Gambier 9.10 (64) to 7.10 (52).

Casterton Sandford v East Gambier

Casterton Sandford came away with a big win over the Doggies on its home turf on Saturday.

The Cats started strong in the first quarter, kicking six goals to give them a comfortable lead early in the game.

The Doggies on the other hand struggled as they only managed one goal on the board, with the Cats holding a 31-point lead at the first break.

The Cats’ domination continued in the second term as they put five goals on the board, lifting the game out of reach for East.

Once again the Doggies only came up with a single goal in the quarter and found themselves trailing by 55 points at half time.

The half time break did not help the Doggies as they continued to struggle and were held goalless in the quarter.

Casterton kept its foot on the pedal, kicking another five goals in the quarter to have an 87 point lead heading into the final term.

The Doggies’ struggles continued in the final period as they again went goalless, while the Cats put the finishing touches on a great game, kicking three goals to seal the big win.

Casterton’s Callum Currie was once again deadly as he bagged five goals in the 103-point thumping.

Casterton Sandford defeated East Gambier 19.10 (124) to 2.9 (21).

West Gambier v Millicent

Millicent headed to Malseed Park on Saturday and came away with another big win.

Both sides started well as they shared time with the footy and got the scoreboard ticking over.

The Saints managed two with West edging a small lead as they kicked three to give them an eight-point lead after one quarter in the books.

The Saints bounced back in the second term as they held the Roos to only a single goal, with Millicent taking the lead with vigour, kicking seven goals to be up by 26 at the main break.

The third quarter was defence heavy with only one goal kicked, however the Roos edged closer to the Saints as they scored the lone goal.

Heading into the final term the home team trailed by 21 points.

After a goalless quarter from the Saints they responded well with four goals while the Roos struggled, only kicking a single goal which was not enough to defeat the Saints.

Millicent’s Frazer Bradley was at his best on Saturday, kicking five goals and continuing to lead the league in goals with 29 for the season.

Millicent defeated West Gambier 13.6 (84) to 6.9 (45).
