Stonecats flex their muscle, big win for Bombers DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn THE Stonecats remain on top of the MPNFL ladder after another impressive victory on the weekend. Frankston YCW played host to Rosebud at John Coburn Oval. The Stonecats raced out of the blocks in the first quarter. A five goals to one first term put them in the box seat early. Things didn’t get any easier for Rosebud in the second quarter, as YCW continued to put pressure on. A four goals to none second term saw the Stonecats go into half time with a 56 point lead. Rosebud showed some fight after half time, but the damage was already done. Frankston YCW ended up winning by 69 points 16.15 (111) to 6.6 (42). Matthew Troutbeck and Christian Tsiampas kicked four goals each for the victors. Frankston Bombers scored a big win on Saturday, defeating Sorrento in a hard-fought match. Both sides traded blows in a tense contest. The Bombers led by just two at half time, and six at three-quartertime. With the game in the balance, the Bombers held their nerve. A seven goal final term saw Frankston Bombers get the win 12.12 (84) to 17.12 (114). Alex Harnett and Khan Haretuku were named the Bombers’ best, having kicked four goals each.

Calder kicks eleven as Bulldogs thrash Magpies DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn A HUGE eleven goal haul from Jackson Calder was the highlight of the day at Alexandra Park on Saturday. Calder’s Mornington thrashed Crib Point. Crib Point couldn’t get close to Mornington. The Bulldogs scored freely, putting 24 goals on the scoreboard throughout the day. Of their 24 goals, 11 came off the boot of Jackson Calder. The star for-

ward hasn’t been at his best in the last couple of games, but put on a show on Saturday to remind everyone what he is capable of. He has now booted 42 goals in eight games this season. Mornington ended up defeating Crib Point 24.15 (158) to 9.10 (64). Chelsea also had a day out on the weekend, defeating Tyabb by 119 points. Jack Francis was Chelsea’s best, kicking nine majors. Curtis Bywater also contributed seven goals to the scoreboard. Chelsea won 5.13 (43) to

25.12 (162). Somerville also scored an impressive win on the weekend, defeating Devon Meadows. Both sides came into the contest in a decent position on the ladder, but Somerville were the more impressive outfit on the day. The Panthers struggled to keep up. Lachlan Williams, Thomas Roberts, and Andrew Fergusson led from the front in best on ground performances. Somerville secured the points with an 18.13 (121) to 10.6 (66) win.

Karingal had a bad day at home as they played host to Seaford. The Tigers were terrific. They restricted the Bulls to just one first half goal, squashing their hopes of a victory. Seaford triumphed with a well-deserved 7.9 (51) to 13.14 (92) win. Around the grounds, Hastings and Langwarrin also claimed wins. The Blues were inaccurate but still won 9.9 (63) to 12.24 (96). Langwarrin kept up their excellent start to 2021 by defeating Rye 14.15 (99) to 6.5 (41).

By Brodie Cowburn IT wasn’t easy, but Mt Eliza managed to score a big comeback win over Frankston last weekend. The Dolphins had a good first half, heading into the main break with a 19 point lead. Mt Eliza kicked 0.5 for the half. A four goal third quarter put Mt Eliza back on track for victory. They closed the gap to a goal at the final break. A goalless final quarter from the Dolphins doomed them to defeat. Mt Eliza completed the comeback and scored a two point win 5.10 (40) to 5.8 (38). The win was their first for the season. Bella Enno was best on ground, scoring three goals for the winners. At Jackson Reserve, Coburg Lions grinded

out a hard fought win over Tyabb. The Lions triumphed 7.3 (45) to 4.10 (34), taking them to fourth on the ladder. The Yabbies were held scoreless in the first quarter, and struggled to recover from there. Eastern Devils and St Kilda Sharks also played out a thriller on Sunday. The contest was a see-sawing affair. The Sharks led by four at quarter time, but by threequarter-time the Devils had a five point advantage. The Eastern Devils held on to win 7.2 (44) to 5.10 (40). Shelley Beggs kicked three goals for the Devils. Seaford had no trouble dispatching Mornington at Belvedere Reserve. The Tigers won by 109 points 19.9 (111) to 0.2 (2).
