CHFA. Another wet week of football saw Scotchtown continue on with its best season in recent memory.
The Tigers travelled to Redpa where they defeated the home side by 46 points led by playing coach Brent Burgess, who kicked eight for the day.
Burgess was impressed with his side, who he says are starting to play some great football.
“I think the last two weeks, Scotchtown is getting back to the way we started,” he said. “We’re starting to play the non-negotiable footy we trained and played hard for in the preseason”.
Youngsters Nic Ling, Pearce Watling and Teven Brown were great for the Tigers providing a lot of carry for their side.
Scotchtown sit in second position on the ladder and will be hoping to secure the double finals chance.
Brandon Tonks was the best for Redpa and he was well supported by Jett Walters and Luke Aldridge but the Red Legs struggled on the heavy ground with a lack of rotations.
Coach Zach Bransden said poor use of the ball and turnover cost his side the game.
Things were no better for Redpa in the Reserves or U17s as Scotchtown were convincing winners in both.
Forest-Stanley easily accounted for Irishtown on the Canaries’ home ground.
The Demons combination of Scott Bryan, Peter Brown, Lincoln Jackson and Ben Elliott kicked 15 goals between them in their side’s 99-point demolition of Irishtown.
But it was Brayden Medwin who had the goal of the day with a snap-shot out of the air on the goal line. Jaiden Free was also fantastic in the ruck and around the ground all day, and coach Matt Elliott also praised the defensive efforts of Cody Korpershoek, Mark Kearnes and Jade and Brody Best.
For Irishtown, Matthew Febey and Alexander Hursey kicked two each while Scott Jackson was best-on-ground and Jessie Brown battled hard all day.
But the Canaries were simply unable to match the powerhouse that is Forest-Stanley this season
The Reserves match was much closer with Irishtown defeating the Demons by just 18 points.
Brodie Herron kicked two for the Canaries while Donovan Lockett kicked two for the away side.
Irishtown were also victorious in the U17s match defeating Forest-Stanley 79-28.
Zeke Dennison kicked five majors and was amongst the home side’s best players.
