Round 13 Review
By BEN HARRISONWHILE Cygnet remained goalless up until half time in the clash with a rampaging New Norfolk on Saturday, the Eagles peppered the goals but didn’t fully punish the Port - only slotting 10 majors from 24 scoring shots.
By the day's end it was 44 scoring shots to 12 and the reliable forward targets of Clayton (4), Gardam (3) and Wilson (2) were once again hitting the scoreboard as the Eagles shared the spoils amongst 13 individual goalkickers.
Two goals for the day for the Port shows what a difference a week makes after Cygnet turned its form around the week prior against Brighton. Kane Nielsen and Mitch Direen tried hard for Cygnet and Jacob Wigg and Brayden Chaplin were the best for New Norfolk.
New Norfolk won in the Reserves by 175 points and had a bye in the Colts competition.
