Carrum Patterson Lakes continue to impress in Division 4, the Lions prevailing in their top of the table clash against Lyndhurst, 9.9-63 to 8.3-51. The first half was a tight affair which saw the Lightning take a slender one point lead thanks to their superb accuracy in front of goal. But the Lions were able to grind out what proved to be a match winning lead in the third term, their two crucial goals proving the difference between the sides. Mackenzie Vraca and Ash Leyden-Kozikas were dominant for CPL, while Tyler Neal booted three goals in his first appearance for the season.
Cerberus maintained their hot start to the season, the navy boys proving way too classy for Moorabbin in a lopsided result 23.14-152 to 3.0-18. It was all one way traffic from the get go as the Dogs big bodies dominated to see the home side kick goal after goal. Jarvis Waasdorp and Brendan D’Rozario combined to kick 13 majors between them and Jake Hinder continues to tear games apart for Cerberus.
Frankston made it two in a row following their victory over Hallam 9.11-65 to 2.5-17 at Overport Park. The Dolphins were never troubled by the Hawks and took control of the contest right from the first bounce. Lucas Taylor and Kailum Newland both hit the scoreboard twice for the home side, while Dean Mendes and Calum Eiffler were named amongst the best.
The round wrapped up with an entertaining game between Dandenong and Lyndale at Greaves Reserve with the Pumas clocking up their first win in a closely fought contest. The visitors looked to be on track for a handsome win after a scintillating second quarter saw them take charge and open up a healthy seven goal buffer. But the Redlegs surged back into the contest with five final quarter goals to give the Pumas an almighty scare at the death. Trevor Kumetaitis proved to be the difference with half a dozen snags and Adjei Boahene continued his fine form for the Pumas. It’s another bitter pill for swallow for the Redlegs who fell similarly short last time at home. Brock Jenkins did all he could with four majors and Luke Dinger cracked in all day.
