Match Report - R11 vs Oakleigh

Zak Kennedy|Mon 09 Jul 2018



Amongst wild winds at Warrawee Park on Saturday, Eastern suffered their third consecutive loss, a 59-point defeat to the Oakleigh Chargers.

Oakleigh kicked with the wind in the opening quarter and quickly set about building a match-winning lead, by quarter time the scoreboard read 40 to 0.

The wind proved to be as much of an obstacle to overcome as the opposition, with Eastern unable to score a single point at the western end of the ground against the wind.

The second and fourth quarters saw Eastern able to win the term by five and twelve points each, but Oakleigh’s dominance in the first and third terms was too much to overcome.

The Ranges’ best players on the day were Lachlan Stapleton, Jack Kritopoulos, Ben Cardamone, Cooper Leon, Tevita Tauali’i, and Xavier Fry.

The goalkickers were:

T Edwards

A Kalcovski

J Jaworski

K Quirk

B White

With Round 12 being a split round, the boys have this weekend off before travelling to Shepparton to face the third-placed Murray Bushrangers. The match is at Deakin Reserve, Shepparton at 1:00PM on Sunday July 22nd.
