Senior Archives: East Malvern vs Heatherton, 30 April 2011
Bendigo Bank Dingley Seniors
Two former grand final combatants in a do or die contest at Dunlop Reserve and as usual a very tight contest. Both sides yet to register a win and desperate for the four points. Within seconds of the bounce the Tunners had registered their first major but Tooronga Malvern retaliated with five straight goals to lead at quarter time. Trent Hotton was running amok for the Combine but was later subdued by Jason McNiff. The game then tightened and became a dour struggle. The solo efforts of Tim Fitzpatrick on the wing and Matty Sauer in the back half were keeping us in the game. Two points in front at 3/4 time, the boys dug deep in the last term to take out the game by 14 points. The win was hard earned but there are many areas on which we have to improve if we are going to tackle the stronger sides in the competition. We were pleased with the performance of Leon Johnson who is improving by the week. Great to see our captain Matt Jamieson (4 goals) back on the park.
