A nine goal haul from Foster’s Tom McGowan ensured Foster claimed the points against Tarwin on Saturday.
Foster sprang out of the gates and caused a lot of damage on the scoreboard early, kicking seven goals to Tarwin’s one. Tiger’s Shaun Chaseling was one of the main options in the forward line, and kicked three goals himself. However, this damage could have been a lot more severe, as Foster missed some of its targets and added five behinds.
A lapse in the second quarter from the Tigers saw the Sharks take advantage and gather some momentum. Tarwin gained four goals, and held Foster to just two. Again, Foster was not converting and had nine behinds on the board by the end of the first half.
Despite this, Foster was winning in the middle, and it wasn’t long before it got on top of the Sharks again. By the last quarter, the Tigers had well and truly ran away with it. Tarwin struggled to hit the scoreboard in the second half, and Foster added to its lead. Tarwin dropped off and allowed Foster to walk away with a 63 point win. 

Brendan Neville and Jonathon Segat led the charge through the middle, earning themselves a place in Foster’s best.
For Tarwin, Jordan Pastura, Paul Hinkley, Benjamin Ellen, Jackson Bloom, Jari Kennedy and John Kilsby took best on ground honours.

FISH Creek was at home to MDU on Saturday and after plenty of rain in the days leading up, the ground was heavy and the conditions not ideal for both players or supporters, but it didn’t slow the Roos who had a big win.
The Combine have struggled in the past couple of years at the senior level but with Stevie Wright coming onboard as the head coach in season 2018 they are on the improve.
Coming up against the ladder leader however on Saturday it was going to be a very tough task.
Even though the Kangaroos were missing several players it was a one-sided affair for much of the day that ended with a 106-point victory to Fish Creek.
MDU won the toss but they didn’t win much more for the day, the Kangaroos jumped out of the gates very quickly and after a couple of missed shots on goal it was Cooper who managed the first goal only two minutes in.
Inaccurate in the opening quarter the Kangaroos put on 5.7 with most of the points easily getable.
The fitness of Tom Cameron is improving with every game and the run that he provides for his team is first class. Gareth Park is another that after returning from injury is making a greater impact with every game and he was fantastic in the midfield all day.
The game never really reached any lofty heights and when MDU did got forward the Fish Creek backline led by Hayes, Walker, McPhee and Gay were solid keeping the Demons scoreless until the late in the final quarter when Josh Wright was awarded a mark.
He played on and snapped truly to register their only score of the day.
The Kangaroos were simply just too strong all over the ground.
With only three rounds left to play in the home and away season the Demons will be looking to continue to improve and get experience into their young team while the Kangaroos will now be looking to fine tune their team and their structures before the final series.
The Kangaroos are at home again next week to Foster while things don’t get any easier for MDU who are also at home to Toora.

On Saturday the glory unexpectedly went Toora’s way and there was a lot to like about the way they went about it.
The Toora ground was heavy after overnight and morning rain and it looked as if the four goal to nil opening by Stony Creek was going to be decisive. It wasn’t all lost for Toora though as their main man, Jack Weston should have had two, possibly even three goals from his chances to score in the first quarter. The team had plenty of grunt around the packs with Josh Griffin the leading player in the middle, assisted by Troy Allott in the ruck and Johnno Pintus in a strong supporting role. Benny Willder had the job on the dangerous Kael Bergles and despite doing a pretty good job, the elusive Bergles had slipped away to kick three on him.
Late in the second quarter, Cat Grant became Plan B, and as he had done in a previous final, managed to blanket Bergles by playing his own game of meeting the ball out front in the air and attacking it aggressively on the ground. Their contest was worth going a long way to see. So, by kicking six goals to three after the first quarter, Toora was right back in the hunt at three quarter time especially with Brady Mitchell having four on the board at that stage.
In the last quarter, Toora dominated play for most of the time and managed two goals by about the 15 minute mark, one by Mitchell t0 hit the front and another by ‘Ossie’ Osborne to provide 10 points of breathing space. But there was still plenty of time and with one of their rare forays forward - Stony Creek pulled one back and it was ‘game on’ with the ball in dispute in the run to the line.
