MPNFL – DIVISION TWO
MORNINGTON got the win in a one-point thriller on ANZAC Day.
The Bulldogs played Devon Meadows at Glover Reserve. The Panthers were boosted by the addition of former AFL star Brett Deledio.
The Bulldogs were the better team in the first half, however their wastefulness in front of goal was costing them. Despite having 11 more scoring shots, Mornington only took a 21 point lead into the main break.
Devon Meadows cut the lead down to eight heading into the last quarter, and nearly did enough to claw over the line. Mornington just held on to claim a nail biting 9.4 (58) to 8.11 (59) win.
Jackson Calder added another three goals to his tally for the season, which stands at 21 from four games.
Langwarrin continued their unbeaten start to 2021 with a thumping victory over Tyabb.
The Kangaroos dismantled the Yabbies, holding them goalless until the final quarter.
Nicholas Tuddenham, Haydn Golby, and former Essendon defender Mark Baguley were named among the best.
Langwarrin’s hard work was rewarded with a 105 point win. The final score read 16.12 (116) to 1.5 (11).
Rye are also 4-0 to start the season. They continued their undefeated run with a win over Pearcedale.
Kalani Ryan, Matthew Hill, and Tyrren Head were named in Rye’s best. Head scored two goals for the afternoon.
Pearcedale kept touch throughout the afternoon, but Rye were the better side. The Demons triumphed 10.12 (72) to 6.15 (51).
Somerville scored a good win over Karingal on Saturday, while Chelsea beat Seaford and Hastings defeated Crib Point.
