Old Ivanhoe vs Old Mentonians (Seniors)
The Seniors fought off a tenacious Old Mentone team and only broke away in the last quarter to win by 33 points , and now sit third on the ladder with four games to go to the finals.
The first half was an even affair but OIG should have been further in front if they didn`t hamper their efforts with inaccuracy in front of goals.
Trent Marshall at full-back kept his dangerous Mentone opponent in check all day , Oscar McIntyre in the ruck and defence , Antony Willison across the backline were playing well and Luke Scuderi, Michael DelMonte, Luke Minahan and Kane Velliou kept up constant attacks from the centre. The third term was dominated by OIG but the inaccuracy except for Luke Scuderi who kicked both goals , continued to get even worse with seven points, and this kept Mentone in striking distance at the last break.
But the last term saw OIG kickaway with goals to Velluto (2) , and Skok in the first ten minutes , and from then on Mentone could only match OIG goal for goal and the damage was done .
Luke Scuderi finished with 4 goals and teamed well with the resting ruckman Velluto who once again proved the old adage that tall men don’t get shorter as the game goes on .
Next week away against Ajax.
