Slow start costly for Anglesea reserves

May 9, 2021

Anglesea was unable to extent its reserves winning streak to three games, falling to Drysdale 14.9 (93) to 9.5 (59).

The visitors were at their best from the opening bounce, pounding through five goals to the Seas one to open up a 26-point advantage at the first break.

The hosts worked their way back into the clash in the second term with three goals to two to only trail by 22 points at the long change.

The Hawks would again sneak away in a relatively even third term to lead by 24 points, leaving the Seas with a slight chance to steal it late.

But it proved to be too much of a deficit to overcome, with the Hawks putting through another three goals to the Seas one confine the hosts to the 34-point loss.

Dylan Taylor led the way for the Seas in the defeat, with Chae Goldsworthy, Alex Clemens, Jaron Lengyel, Darcy Cooper and Calvin Altman holding their own.

Cooper (three goals) and Callum Shaw (two goals) did the damage for Anglesea up forward.

The defeat leaves the reserves out of the top five with a 3-3 record ahead of next weekend’s clash against Ocean Grove.
