Sharks get their bite back DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn SORRENTO have scored their first win for the season after an epic matchup against Pines. The Sharks made the long road trip to Eric Bell Reserve to take on the Pythons on Saturday. Pines got off to a good start early and took a lead into the first break. The Sharks didn’t let the Pythons get too far ahead though, and had drawn level by three-quarter-time.

Nine goals were kicked in a pulsating final term. Sorrento managed to get themselves five points in front, and held on for a hard-fought win 12.12 (84) to 13.11 (89). Shannon Gladman was best afield for the Sharks, kicking four goals. The win puts Sorrento back on the right path after a horror performance against Rosebud in round one. The clash was a rematch of the epic 2018 Grand Final, in which Pines won with a point scored after the siren.

The Redlegs were getting the better of the Stonecats throughout the first half, and took a 22 point lead into the main break. Frankston YCW wrestled back momentum in the second half. The lead was closed to eight points by threequarter-time. The Stonecats got close to completing the fightback, but just fell short.

The siren blew with both sides equal on 86 points. Matthew Troutbeck booted five goals in a best on ground performance for the Stonecats. Rosebud's good start to 2021 continued with a win over reigning premiers Dromana at home. Rosebud were the better team throughout the afternoon. They defeated the Tigers 13.15 (93) to 9.11 (65). Nicholas Batsanis and Greg Bentley

were big contributors for the winning outfit, scoring four goals each. A six-goal haul from Trent DennisLane helped Bonbeach secure a 28 point win over Red Hill. Jonathon Ross can hold his head high after contributing six goals to the losing side’s final total. At Regents Park, Frankston Bombers comfortably defeated EdithvaleAspendale 8.12 (60) to 18.10 (118). Corey Buchan played another blinder, scoring seven goals.
