St Bedes/Mentone Tigers vs Old Ivanhoe (U19s)
The U19s having been promoted to Section 2 travelled to St Bedes for their season opener. This game would also be an early test, given the step-up in grade and the opponent, whose senior team is an A-Grade club.
Following a low scoring 1st quarter with OI ahead by a goal at ¼ time, the boys heaped on the pressure with a four goal to one 2nd term to lead by close to 5 goals at ½ time.
The team maintained its intensity for the rest of the game and continued to increase its lead as the game progressed. By ¾ time the lead had been extended to 45 points with the final scores being 16.10.106 to 5.8.38, a margin of 68 points.
Oscar McIntyre and Will Coulter dominated the ruck which opened the way for captain Antony Willison to repeatedly push the ball forward. The back line was superbly led by Tom Coulter at full back, with a near faultless display.
Congratulations to the boys on a fine win; we look forward to reporting many more this season.
