Former Saints star for Sharks, Pythons’ problems persist DIVISION ONE

won 12.8 (80) to 11.10 (76). Leigh Poholke was back to his best for the Sharks, booting six goals. Tom Small was named best afield for the victorious Redlegs. Pines’ miserable start to 2021 has continued. The Pythons were thumped by Dromana last weekend. After a competitive opening term, the Tigers blew the game apart in the second quarter. A seven goals to nil second term spelled doom for Pines. Dromana went on to secure a dominant 25.19 (169) to 9.6 (60) win. Reece Wilde scored four goals in a best-on-ground showing. Ethan Johnstone also scored four for Dromana off the back of his five goal haul the week prior. Frankston Bombers defeated Red Hill at Baxter Park on Saturday 9.21 (75) to 7.4 (46). Edithvale-Aspendale are still without a win this season, succumbing to an 11 goal loss to Frankston YCW.

By Brodie Cowburn BONBEACH have claimed top spot on the ladder with a big win over Rosebud. Coming into the clash, Rosebud had established themselves as the inform team in the competition. They started the year 3-0. Bonbeach put Rosebud on the back foot early with a big first term. The Sharks entered quarter-time with a four goal lead, and continued to apply pressure after the break. Three former St Kilda players led from the front for the Sharks. Sam Gilbert and David Armiatge were among the best, and Trent Dennis-Lane scored four goals. A miserable day for Rosebud ended in a 14.20 (104) to 5.4 (34) defeat. Mt Eliza and Sorrento put on a good show for the crowd at Emil Madsen Reserve on Saturday. Sorrento looked the stronger side in the first half, taking a 25 point lead into the main break. The Redlegs burst out of the gates in the third quarter. A five goals to one blitz put them ahead by two points. After a tense see-sawing final quarter, Mt Eliza emerged with a hard fought come-from-behind win. The Redlegs

Big win for Bulldogs, Kangaroos continue to impress DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn MORNINGTON have scored an impressive win on their home turf. The Bulldogs stopped Rye’s undefeated start to 2021 with a hard-fought victory. Mornington got off to a hot start, scoring six goals in the first quarter. They continued to apply scoreboard pressure all afternoon, giving the De-

mons’ defenders headaches. Rye gave up nearly 40 scoring shots throughout the game. Mornington ended up wrapping up the win 18.20 (128) to 12.9 (81). Jackson Calder was dominant in front of goal again. He finished with seven goals to his name. Langwarrin have continued their winning ways this season, taking the points from Hastings. The Blues weren’t able to get close

to Langwarrin, who hopped away to an 84 point win. The final score read 7.9 (51) to 20.15 (135). A five goal haul from Todd Gardiner helped Chelsea to a good win over Somerville. Chelsea started sluggishly, and found themselves behind by three goals at the half-time break. The contest after half-time was a completely different story. Chelsea scored eight goals to one in the second

half of the match to claim a 13.8 (86) to 9.11 (65) win. Seaford had a day out against Crib Point, impressing in an 89 point win. Aaron Walton scored six goals for the victors.

Sharna Beazley kicked three goals for the Yabbies. Claire Burgess, Sophie Phillips, and Emma Kesik contributed two goals each - Burgess go-

ing on to be named best-on-ground. Skye Nisbet kicked Mornington’s only goal. After a good win last week, Frankston fell short against Coburg Lions on Saturday. The Dolphins went into half time down by seven points. They weren’t able to overcome that deficit, and end-
