Demons take down the Giants

MEENIYAN Dumbalk United travelled to take on Korumburra-Bena on Saturday with the full team in tip top shape for the match.
Kicking with the wind helped the visiting Demons in the first term and saw the side up 23 points by the end of the quarter.
Michael Smith brought some tough competition to the Giants and proved to be strong in the ruck throughout the match while Thomas Harley played strong in full forward, kicking seven majors across the game.
KB fought hard in the second term but struggled to catch MDU that pulled ahead on 73 to 13 by half time, the Giants had only scored one major in each term.
MDU had only 17 on the field for the second quarter after Jakob Laskey was carded.
Third term saw a pattern emerge as KB only managed one more major to MDU’s five. The visiting side finished the quarter on 109 to 22.
It was in the final quarter that in spite of an enormous margin, the Giants almost doubled its score, booting another three majors and ending the match on 40.
Giants’ Nicholas Besley stood out throughout the game up against Josh Swift, but fell down with a bad hamstring five minutes from the final siren.
By the final siren MDU had managed a 84 point victory against home side Giants.
MDU will play Allies on the back of its victory against Tarwin while KB will head off to Fish Creek this Saturday.

Ground down: Korumburra’s Luke Van Rooye braced himself for a hard landing after he was dispossessed by MDU’s Brendon Dillon. The Giants suffered another hard landing on the weekend, this time at the hands of Meeniyan Dumbalk United which posted its first win for the season.
