Sharing the load key as Seas move to 6-1

May 15, 2021

Anglesea’s senior winning streak extended to five with a four-quarter performance to tame Ocean Grove by 42 points.

With Dale Carson once again the rock in defence, the Seas were able to break away from the Grubbers early on to claim a 13.12 (90) to 6.12 (48).

The Seas started hot in the first quarter, dominating the visitors in the middle of the ground and keeping them goalless.

But it took until the second half of the term for the control of the contest to be evident on the scoreboard and four goals helped them to take a 25-point advantage into the first break.

The Grubbers woke up in the second term and with the aid of the wind, put three goals of their own on the board to cut the margin to 19 points at half time after keeping the Seas to two.

The long break re-energised the hosts and a commanding effort from the forwards led the way in a five goal to one term to effectively put the visitors out of the game with the lead blowing out to 42 points with a quarter to go.

Both sides had their opportunities in front of goal, finishing with identical 2.3-2.3 quarters to close the game and guaranteed the margin would remain at 42 points.

Joining Carson in the best players was running half-back Nick Swain, winger Jack Rice and utilities Lewis Rounds, Blake Grant and Lewis Beers.

Beers was the leading goal kicker for the Seas with three majors, with Jordan Erskine, Grant, Jack Elliott and Brent Lynch chipping in with two each.

The 6-1 record has the Seas sitting second on the ladder ahead of a top of the ladder clash with Torquay on the road next week.
