CCL: Seagulls push Eagles to a draw

WHILE the aura of invincibility surrounding Cranbourne might be cracked, not shattered, Tooradin-Dalmore did the Casey Cardinia League a big favour on Saturday.

They did what no team other than Narre Warren has been able to do in recent seasons — they didn’t lose to the Eagles.

Seagulls defender Sam Watson restricted boom full forward Marc Holt to four goals and their midfield at least broke even with their star-studded Eagles’ counterparts.

But it still wasn’t enough and the match finished in a thrilling draw. Holt kicked two points late in the game to tie the scores up 13.16 (94) to the Seagulls 14.10 (94).

Seagulls coach Tom Hallinan said he was proud of the performance but rued a lack of composure in the final minutes that cost his team what would have been a famous victory over Cranbourne.

“Cranbourne have only been beaten by one team in the past three years,” he said.

“There have been nine other teams that have lost to Cranbourne . . . I can’t fault the players but I don’t know if it was the one that got away?

“Maybe a lack of experience cost us. We should have closed it out but went with a couple of short kicks instead of long ones.”

To compound the heartbreak for the Seagulls, star midfielder Beau Miller suffered a broken ankle in the second term and is set for an extended stint on the sidelines.

This meant more pressure was heaped on Matthew Wade and Brett Scarcella through the midfield and the pair responded as they guided the Seagulls to a eight-point half-time lead after trailing by 43 points at the first change.

Small forward Ryan Eaton was another catalyst for the revival, with four of his six goals coming in the second term to be clearly the most dangerous forward on the park.

“They obviously got out to a bolter and used the breeze to their advantage,” Hallinan said.

“By the last term the breeze wasn’t there and like all good teams they rallied and hit the front.”

For Cranbourne, Ryan Davey was typically hard working while Justin Bollenhagen and Stuart Morrish also battled valiantly.

Doveton recorded a tough 38-point win over Pakenham at AJ Robinson Oval on Saturday with Shannon Stocco booting six majors.

Aaron Henwood was dominant for Doveton while Michael Laszczyk, Ryan Morrison and Michael Henry were all solid contributors.

Pakenham’s best were Michael Taurua and coach Steve O’Bryan.

Berwick recorded a 77-point hammering of Keysborough to extend the Chris Bryan-coached outfit’s misery. Jordan Andrews booted four majors for the Wickers while Lloyd Shepherd and Madison Andrews were brilliant.

Narre Warren flexed its muscle to account for ROC by 84 points with Kerem Baskaya booting seven goals. Beaconsfield smashed Hampton Park by 131 points with Jake Cameron booting six majors.

VFL: Borough’s late burst takes the Scorpions off guard

CASEY Scorpions suffered their first loss of Rohan Welsh’s reign, going down to Port Melbourne by three points in a hard-fought VFL clash at North Port Oval on Saturday.

The Scorpions led by four goals at the final change but the Borough came out full of running to win 15.11 (101) to 14.14 (98).

Welsh said the Borough had been impossible to stop in the opening 10 minutes of the final term when they eroded the Scorpions’ lead with a brilliant style of play.

“We just couldn’t stop them . . . we tried but they got on top,” he said. “I don’t think we played at our best, but I don’t think they did either and you can probably put that down to pressure from both sides.

“I think [Port Melbourne coach Gary Ayres] Ayresy would agree.”

The Scorpions’ usual suspects were prolific with James Magner gathering 32 touches while highly rated youngster Jimmy Toumpas gathered 26 disposals in his best performance at VFL level.

Boom 17-year-old Jesse Hogan didn’t play after failing to overcome a corked knee, opening the door for recruit Chris Dawes to get more opportunity in attack.

Dawes moved freely and booted three goals and will soon come into contention to make his long-awaited debut for the Demons.

Jack Fitzpatrick was again impressive for the Scorpions in attack to also finish with three goals. Luke Tynan provided plenty of drive off half-back.

Sam Blease responded well to being dropped from Melbourne’s line-up to gather 32 possessions, but in the end the experience of players like Jon Baird and Sam Pleming was telling for the Borough.

Scorpion Tom Gillies suffered a hamstring injury in the second term and will miss several weeks. Mitch Clisby was knocked out in the third term but should be OK for the Scorpions’ next game. The VFL has a general bye this weekend because of VFL’s state game against the WAFL.

Casey Scorpions clash with Box Hill Hawks at Casey Fields from 1.10pm on Saturday, May 18.

Big V: Lean patch, but Cavaliers see the positives

CASEY Cavaliers dropped their third successive Big V basketball division 2 clash with a six-point loss to Melton at Melton Indoor Recreation Centre on Saturday night.
Nanjing Night Net

But Cavs coach Stewart Baird said it wasn’t all doom and gloom for his team and believes they are close to turning the corner after the hard-fought 70-76 loss.

“It’s obviously disappointing but when you lose games in a row you look for signs that there is improvement,” he said.

“Going into the fourth quarter we were up by two or three points but they continued to work really hard and we had a couple of mental blocks.”

Several key statistics told the tale. Melton scored 13 points as a direct result from a Cavs turnover; the home team also pulled down 18 offensive rebounds.

“If we cut that by a third we would have won the game,” Baird said.

Baird said the positives to come out of the match were plentiful with Ash Szalek (12 points, 11 rebounds) battling hard against strong opposition.

He said Dylan Wayman lifted after having a downer in their previous match and Stephen Michalski also contributed.

“We brought Dylan on halfway through the first quarter and he took just seven shots and ended up with 14 points. It’s great when a player clearly has a bad one and he can respond.”

Baird said he is hopeful his team can return to the winners’ list against Keilor at Casey on Sunday. The club hosts a fund-raiser for Breast Cancer Awareness.

Casey Cavaliers women went down 50-57 to Southern Peninsula Sharks on Saturday night with Jessica Szalek statistically their best with 13 points and 13 rebounds.

The Sharks blew the game apart in the third term with a 26-12 run but the Cavs never gave up and threatened in the final term.

But Sharks star Lee Wilkins’ 19 points proved to be the difference.

Casey Cavs Youth League 2 men were due to play yesterday.
