|Josh Clifford in action at Boyer Oval today.|
The Eagles started to get a bit of a run on and were looking like they were about to steal the game away from the Two Blues but Lindisfarne steadied in the third quarter and started to kick away to eventually stand tall over the reigning premiers at Boyer Oval.
Hobart v Dodges Ferry was a tightly contested game with the Tigers walking away with a two point win, while an inaccurate Sorell side was too good for Brighton. The Magpies chalked up a big win over The Port at Cygnet, with Luke Potter and Tyler Bowden booting 10 goals between them.
In the sole women’s game of the round, Claremont opened its season with a nine-point win over The Port.
