The final game in RAMS Arena triple header saw the Power coming out 26 points on top over the Rebels. From what was a scrappy affair, much of the game was played in the midfield with either side struggling to break off into transition. The first term concluded with a 4-point margin on the back of too many missed opportunities from Gippsland. From a goal difference at the main break to 13 points at the third, the Power kept a firm grip on their lead, dominating the game through backline transition.
Despite the Rebel’s efforts, the game was clearly on the Power’s terms from the beginning. The work put in by Kyle Reid (24 disposals, nine marks, seven rebounds) kept scoring off the cards for his opposition. The sleek midfield plays from bottom-agers, Bailey Beck (19 disposals, eight marks) and Boadie Motton (16 disposals, three inside 50s), along with Xavier Duursma (21 disposals, five marks, 12 tackles and two goals) were pivotal in transition. Down forward Sam Flanders and Austin Hodge bagged five goals between them and assisted plenty in converting for others.
