It was a lopsided round of football in Division 4 this weekend with the average winning margin across the four games blowing out to 104 points.
Frankston responded to last week's disappointment with a 77 point victory over Lyndale, the Dolphins far too good for the Pumas across the board. However the final score, 16.14-110 to 4.9-33, didn’t paint the entire picture with just 28 points separating the two sides at three quarter time. Whatever was said in the Frankston huddle clearly worked, as the crowd at Overpot Oval was treated to an eight goal avalanche to see the Dolphins run away with the contest. Lucas Taylor was pivotal in the performance with three goals and was well supported by both Luke Long and Brendan Kruse.
Carrum Patterson Lakes continued their great form, running over the top of Hallam in the second half to notch up an important victory, 12.13-85 to 4.10-34. Both sides were plagued by inaccuracy in the first half with just seven goals kicked between the sides from 22 scoring shots. It was a different story for CPL in the third term, the visitors booting 4.2 to open up a handy advantage. The task in the last proved too much for the Hawks as the Lions continued adding to their score to finish strongly. The visitors shared the goals around with a good spread once again and Jon McGennisken was named as his sides best.
Cerberus made another big statement, trouncing Dandenong to the tune of 153 points in a genuine training drill for the home side. The three-headed Dogs toyed with the Redlegs, piling on ten goals in the final term to utterly demoralise the visitors. The final score 27.12-174 to 3.3-21. As you’d expect the Cerberus forwards feasted on the Dandy carcass with Austin Richardson, Jayden Fridd and Jamison Lynn sharing a lazy 16 goals. The Redlegs did well to hang in for three quarters before they were completely wiped off the park in the last against a good side.
Lyndhurst certainly found the answer to their structural issues up forward this week, the Lightning slamming through 22 majors to thump Moorabbin in yet another one sided contest. Like most other games in Division 4 this week, the dominant side controlled the scoreboard up until three quarter time before they slammed home the ascendancy in the final twenty minutes of the match. Charlie Gardiner was brilliant with half a dozen goals, Hamish Browning also finished with five majors and Tyson Sparkes continued his great start to the season. The final score 22.15-147 to 1.4-10.
