SORRENTO took on Rosebud in a Queen’s Birthday weekend clash on Saturday.
The Sharks hosted the matchup at David Macfarlane Reserve, Rosebud were looking for their first win of the season.
Unfortunately for Rosebud, it was another tough day for them. A six goals to one first term proved too much to overcome.
After a stronger second quarter showing, Rosebud were outplayed in the second half. The Sharks ended up winning comfortably 14.9 (93) to 5.9 (39).
Curtis Bywater and Shannon Gladman were both among Sorrento’s best, They kicked nine goals between them. Charlie Stokes also impressed.
The other game for the weekend in the MPNFL first division saw Dromana battle Red Hill.
Red Hill had the momentum early. They took a 14 point lead into the main break after restricting Dromana to just two first half goals.
Despite their good start, Red Hill let their lead slip by failing to apply scoreboard pressure. They kicked just one goal in the second half, which ended up costing them the game.
Dromana snuck ahead by a goal at the final break. They held onto that lead in the final term to claim a narrow 6.10 (46) to 6.4 (40) win.
The rest of the games for the round will be played this weekend.
