OLD BRIGHTON: 3.5.23
OLD MENTONIANS: 3.3.21
This week the Tonners travelled to Old Mentone for our second round clash in very difficult conditions at Keysborough. We lost the toss and kicked into a gale in the first quarter. Although we didn’t score into the wind, we held the hosts to one goal. Our second quarter was poor and we couldn’t take advantage of the strong position we created in the first quarter and trailed by 5 points at half time.
The second half produced a much better team performance and we held on to win a thriller by 2 points which was secured by a miraculous goal from the boundary by Ava Hales in the last quarter.
We have a big twilight game against Beaumaris at home this week.
