Fish Creek were winners at home at Terrill Park to Tarwin on Saturday on what was a bleak winter‘s day.
The Sharks had already beaten the Kangaroos this year and they were hopeful of a showing like that of their Round 1 encounter.
Tarwin won the toss and kicked with a solid wind advantage to the creek end, but from very early on however it was evident that it was going to be a tough day out for the Sharks. The Kangaroos were red hot early on and they had three goals on the board in the opening 10 minutes through Shaw, Cooper and Seccull and all this before the Sharks had ventured into their forward 50. The Sharks had to do something and so they started to try to get under the skin of the Fish Creek team to put them off their game and in turn get themselves into the encounter. At the 12-minute mark Fish Creek’s Macri and Tarwin’s Pastura were headed to the bench, yellow carded for not much more than a wrestle really but the umpires were keen to ensure that they kept control of the match as it was showing signs of turning ugly with plenty of small spot fires around the contests. Tarwin managed their first goal only a minute later through Williams but Fish Creek held firm to shut down any further advancement by the Sharks and late in the quarter the Kangaroos scored the final goal of the term to Hargraves with a pack bursting run and goal of the day.
The second quarter wasn’t much of a spectacle with the conditions not really allowing either team to play their normal style of game. Fish Creek’s Oaten kicked the opener only two minutes in and then the fans would have to wait 15 minutes before the next goal to Tarwin’s Williams again who was causing some headaches down back for Fish Creek. The Kangas closed out the half the stronger however and goals to Seccull and Harfield Park just before the long break had the margin out to 39 points.
Two goals apiece in the third quarter but again the game wasn’t a great spectacle for the supporters with intermittent showers and a strong wind blowing. At the final change the Sharks needed something special against the wind down by 42 points, but the final quarter never reached any lofty heights for either side but the Kangaroos, strong in defence led by Hayes and Gay kept Tarwin scoreless while they added a couple of goals to Smith and a third for the day to Seccull and in the end, the Kangaroos ran out comfortable 57-point winners.South Gippsland Sentinel Times
