Round 8 Reserves Match Report

OLD BRIGHTON:    12.11.83

OLD TRINITY:  10.2.62


Lifted by the return of Nick Coroneos and a debut appearance from Elliot Harris, the Roscoes enjoyed their first win of the season with a strong effort at Trinity.  Michael Dewar’s first appearance for the season was curtailed by a hand injury, but he, Jack Cowling and Marty Ho, gave the side a far stronger starting line-up than they have had for most of the season.

The Roscoes were again slow to start as Trinity booted the first four before Tom Gunning snapped our opener and Harris booted another soon after.  The skill of The Great Tragedian emerged in the second term and it was clear that he would be able to provide a winning finish to the side’s efforts after he drove home a goal from fifty and then brilliantly snapped another to put the Roscoes back in the game.  Tom Gunning also looked dangerous up forward as the Roscoes were able to build pressure through the middle of the ground to give the forwards opportunities to score.

Down by a point at half-time and all square at the final break, the Roscoes had a sniff of victory and they charged after it.  Coroneos kicked his fifth from well out, Tom Fisher scambled another from the square, and George sealed it when the boys forced the ball within range.  Nick Freeman put the finishing touches on a terrific win when he scored another from close in as the Roscoes finished full of running.
