Eastern Eyre Football
Kimba Districts 15-12 (102) defeated Ports 1-3 (9)
In what can only be described as a perfect day for football, Ports travelled up to Kimba for the round seven clash against the Tigers.
The junior colts match was a great one to watch with both teams showing some real good passages of play.
Kimba got over the line by a couple of goals reversing the result from the last match at Port Neill
Ports continued their good form in the colts and recorded yet another impressive victory by seven goals.
Dan Schilling certainly wanted to prove a point in the reserves and had his players switched on from the opening bounce.
Stutely took full advantage of Jimmy Mead and Luke Ramsey’s dominance in the ruck and had a day out.
The main match seemed to lack intensity right from the start with both sides playing at times ‘lazy footy’.
However, it was Kimba who took a five goal lead into the first break.
The second and third quarters were much the same with Kimba’s defence saving them time and time again.
Andrew Vandeleur, Watkins and Hample were mopping up everything and Dick Scott was impressive once again in the key defensive post.
Tom Davey and Brad Masters were absolute stand outs for Ports and certainly showed their teammates how to do it.
Kimba were set a challenge at three quarter time to put their dominance on the score board and while Ports defended admirably the Tigers had their best quarter for the match.
Jesse Kemp in the ruck for Kimba was streets ahead as best-on-ground with some spectators chatting as to whether or not he broke the 50 possession barrier.
Scott, A. Vandeleur, Woolford, Watkins and Hample all rounded out the Tigers’ best.
Ports best were a little harder to find.
However, Davey and B. Masters were clear standouts, Prime battled hard in defence and while out classed in the ruck, Tyron Bishop put up a good fight.
