Rosedale run rampant



A five-goal haul from Brandon McDonald set Rosedale up with their second win of the 2019 season at the expense of Glengarry, placing them atop the North Gippsland league senior ladder after two rounds.

A quiet first term on the scoreboard with two goals to the Magpies’ one was quickly forgotten in the second term as the Blues piled on six majors to blow their buffer out to 41 points at half-time.

They well and truly buried Glengarry’s hopes in the third with another five majors to stretch the lead to an insurmountable 12 goals at the last change and 74 points at the final siren.

Joining McDonald on the scoreboard were Matt Royal (three goals) and Dale Fleming (two goals) while singles went to six others.

For Glengarry – who are none from two – Layne Hetherton kicked two goals.

The North Gippsland league will break for Easter and return with round three scheduled for Saturday, April 27.

Gormandale v Cowwarr

The hurt continued for Gormandale with a further 14 second-half goals completing the rout.

Shane Morgan, with a massive 12 goals for the game, single-handedly outscored the Tigers to take his individual tally to 17 majors from the first two rounds.
