MATCH REPORT (BOYS) – R17 vs CALDER CANNONS
EASTERN RANGES – 10.7.67
CALDER CANNONS – 9.9.63
Our Round 17 clash and the last game of the home and away season saw us head to Avalon Airport Oval to take on the Calder Cannons.
Our boys started very slowly in the first and allowed the Cannons to kick three goals to our one, with wasted opportunities keeping us from impacting the scoreboard how we would’ve desired.
The second quarter saw our boys even the ledger, heading into the main break four points in front after three consecutive Eastern goals.
The second half saw a number of lead changes and a heart stopping final term with both teams fighting hard to come away with the four points.
With under one minute left in the game, our boys worked the ball up from our back pocket to our forward line where Connor Downie received a free kick for holding the ball.
The siren sounded and Connor Downie kicked truly to secure a four point victory in a thrilling finish.
The victory sees us claim the minor premiership and with the week off this week as we prepare for our 2019 Finals campaign.
Best: Lachlan Stapleton, James Ross, Zakery Pretty, Mitch Mellis, Riley Smith & Mihaele Zalac
