MATCH REPORT (BOYS) – R14 vs OAKLEIGH CHARGERS
EASTERN RANGES – 11.9.75
OAKLEIGH CHARGERS – 12.11.83
Our Round 14 clash with the Oakleigh Chargers saw us back home at Box Hill City Oval as we looked to keep our place at the top of the NAB League Ladder.
The first quarter was all Eastern, which saw us take advantage of the heavy breeze and pile on four goals to nil in the quarter.
The second term was the complete opposite where the Chargers recovered from their slow start that saw our lead diminish from 29 points to four points behind, after the Chargers piled on five straight goals.
The second half was a see-sawing affair with the lead changing hands four times following half time. But it was Oakleigh who held the lead at the final siren.
Four goals from Jordan Jaworski, three to our debutant Beau Tennant and solid performances from Lachlan Stapleton, Zakery Pretty and Wil Parker down back wasn’t enough to keep our six-game winning streak intact.
Despite the loss, we still sit a game clear in top spot with the Oakleigh Chargers and Gippsland Power right behind us.
Best: Lachlan Stapleton, Mihaele Zalac, Beau Tennant, Wil Parker, Zakery Pretty & Jack Hourihan.
J Jaworski 4
B Tennant 3
Our next match is not until the 3rd of August where we head to Shepley Oval to take on the Dandenong Stingrays.
