Red Hill hold on for thriller win



IN a split round to kick off the 2021 season, Red Hill have held off Dromana for a one point win.

Red Hill were 20 points up at three quarter time, but Dromana made a last quarter charge and nearly clinched it.

Dromana kicked four goals to one in the last to fall just short.

Sam Fowler slotted three goals for Dromana, while Jonathon Ross and Christopher Irving scored two each for Red Hill.

It was a bad day for Edithvale-Aspendale as they were smashed by Bonbeach by over 100 points.

Playing away from home, they were only nine points down at quarter time, but it was all downhill from there.

The fourth quarter was pure humiliation, as Edithvale-Aspendale put on just one point against Bonbeach’s 51 points.

Trent Dennis-Lane was the best for Bonbeach, slotting seven goals for the day. Jack Sullivan booted four, and David Armitage, Michael Turville, Justin Bennett and Tyson Murray slotted two each.

Michael Meehan was the best for Edithvale-Aspendale with three majors.

It was a worrying start to the season for Sorrento, being beaten soundly by  Rosebud.

After a strong first quarter where Rosebud kicked four goals to one, Sorrento were never in it, and went down by 55 points in the end.

Straight kicking was an issue for the Sharks with only two majors for the day (James Hallahan and Nick Corp) and nine minor scores.

The best kicking of the day for Rosebud was Jai Nanscawen with four goals.

The round completes on the weekend with Frankston YCW taking on Pines and Frankston Bombers up against Mt Eliza.
