Old Ivanhoe vs Marcellin (Seniors)
OIG scored its second win with a resounding victory over traditional rivals Marcellin in front of a big crowd down at Chelsworth Park . The first term saw both teams with an even possession of the ball , but OIG could not kick a goal . In fact Marcellin kicked the first four goals to OIG`S eight points before Jack Welham finally kicked true early in the second term . From then on OIG dominated the next two quarters kicking another eight straight to set up a 33 point margin by ¾ time.
Luke Velluto was again masterly in the ruck , feeding the midfielders or actually grabbing the ball at the centre bounce and kicking it himself for many a centre clearance, Brodie Tardio , showing all the class we’ve hoped for , Jack Bradley and Kane Veliou ran Marcellin`s small men ragged , captain Michael Mitris pulled down contested marks whether in attack or defence , Nick Reeves-Smyth dynamic around the ground and OIG poured on the goals with Welham 3, Scuderi 2 , Reeves-Smyth, Mitris , and Jones .
Marcellin came back in the last term but OIG steadied thru the defence of CHB Oscar McIntyre and full-back Trent Marshall who beat their opponents all day , and goals from Crouch and Gibbs put the game out of contention.
Next week away at Mentone.
