Rovers thrash Therry again

The Hampton Rovers made it 4 wins in a row after defeating Therry Penola by 131 points at Boss James Reserve on Saturday.

While it wasn?t the huge 201-point margin the Rovers defeated the same side by a few weeks back, it was still an impressive display by the home side in front of a big Rovers crowd.

It was a somewhat lacklustre opening term by the Rovers as Therry kicked the opening  goal of the game. The Rovers followed with 4 of their own and at quarter time it was the home side by 24 points.

The second term produced a much improved performance by the Rovers as they piled on 10 goals while restricting Therry to just the single major. Hampton held a commanding 85-point lead at the main break.

The third quarter was closer as the Rovers kicked 6 goals to 4. At the final break, it was the home side by 98 points.

As the rain came down in the final term, the Rovers finished up with a further 5 goals with Therry managing just the one. At the final siren, it was the Rovers running out winners 25.27.177 to 7.4.46. The margin could have been much more if not for inaccurate kicking; the scoreboard showing 52 scoring shots to 11.

Rovers full forward and captain Matthew Lawrence kicked a further 8 goals to bring him to 47 for the season. Jason Zampaglione kicked 5, Rob Alexander 4, Gary Carr 2, Mark Ferrari 2, Leigh De Boer 2, and singles to Matt Terech and Leigh Fletcher.

Better players for the Rovers were Gary Carr, Leigh De Boer, Matt Lawrence, Jason Zampaglione, Mark Ferrari and Rob Alexander.

Next week the Rovers travel to Old Paradians in a repeat of the Round One game in which the Rovers ran out 104-point victors. Parade has improved since then though and are always tough at home, so it’s sure to be a good contenst.

The Reserves also had a big win defeating Therry by 102 ponts. Tom Rootsey led the goal kicking with 4, Nick Evens 3, David Anderson 2, Alex Crisp 2, Matthew Gray 2, Nick Oriti 2, singles to Michael Flahive, Jarred Shafer, Lachie Wheeler and Jeremy Yelland. Best players were Andrew Castles, Alex Crisp, Cain Malthouse, Lachie Wheeler, Nick Evans and Tom Rootsey.

The Under 19’s played Friday night under lights at Elsternwick Park and defeated top-side Mazenod by 33 points. Jason Giasoumi kicked 4 goals, Zeke Lewis 2, singles to Sweeney, Morecroft, Sinclair, McCarthy and Pinto. Best players were Steedman, Sweeney, McCoy, Young, Schmitz and Innes.
