Round 5 at Kimberley Reserve greeted us with howling winds not seen this season.
An attacking Malek to Christie combination then a hard running Battye effort saw us hit the board with 2 goals into the breeze & an 8 point deficit. The 2nd saw us create 11 scoring opportunities versus 4 to go into the break with a 14 point lead in a scrappy affair where tackles where the dominant statistical indicator. Another quarter into the wind saw us at our arm wrestling best, each player contributing defensively to hold the Panthers to 1 goal with a healthy gale. 4 goals in the last was enough to get the job done against a willing opponent in trying conditions.
We look forward to the challenge of hosting Ringwood this weekend.
