Oakleigh Chargers - 8.13.61 | Eastern Ranges - 1.5.11
Torrential rain greeted the players on Saturday morning at Skybus Stadium, Frankston. The slippery conditions ensured that this would not be a slick, skilful display of fast-paced football - instead a slow, heavily contested arm wrestle for precious territory.
Oakleigh opened their goal account five minutes into the first quarter through Daniel Scala, and from there it seemed that the Chargers were quicker to adjust to the conditions.
As a small consolation, Eastern did not finish the day goalless, with Jonte Duffy winning a free kick and slotting his chance five minutes into the final quarter.
Eastern’s next match is under Thursday night lights at RAMS Arena in Craigieburn, against the eighth-placed Calder Cannons.
