Catani dominated from start to finish to record a resounding 17.8 (110) to 6.10 (46) win over Neerim-Neerim South at home.
In a day that was all about Owen Fitzpatrick, the big man didn’t disappoint and put on a show for the Catani faithful.
Needing seven majors to claim his magical 1,000th goal, Fitzpatrick had four to half time, but the Cats sent players back into the hole and double teamed him in the second half. It took until the final few minutes, but Fitzpatrick gave the crowd what they wanted when he took a strong grab and scored the set shot for the milestone goal. He finished the day with eight majors and 1001 career goals in a typical dominant display, while Nic Visser (three goals) and Tom Keily were impressive.Hayley Wildes
