Fishy outplay Tarwin

FISH Creek made its second trip down to Tarwin on Saturday to take on the Sharks on its home deck.
The weather was not ideal for footy with a strong wind blowing with an icy feeling that kept supporters in their cars or, if willing to brave it, well rugged up.
A couple of changes due to injury for both sides had neither side at full strength.
Fish Creek captain Cal Park won the toss and elected to kick to the town end and the match got underway.
It was clear from early on that the Kangaroos were ready to go and they attacked immediately through the Parks brothers Callan and Ethan.
Justin Smith has been a welcome return to the Fish Creek side returning from injury and he was very lively up forward booting two first quarter goals including the opener for the match which showcased his pace and ability to read the ball in the difficult conditions.
The highlight of the quarter was a spectacular mark taken by Tarwin’s Dermott Yawney that would compete with any of those shown on the newly re-appointed Eddie’s Footy Show segment “Almost Footy Legends”.
At quarter time the Kangaroos had the lead by 12 points 3.1 to 1.1.
The second quarter had both sides going hard and there was a bit of feeling in the game throughout this quarter.
The Kangaroos had the better of the quarter and it was played mostly on their terms in the Fish Creek forward 50 area. Coates and Cal Park ran rings around their opponents and they were well supported by Ethan Park, Cameron, Harfield Park while Manne and Hayes dominated through the ruck continually giving their teammates first use of the ball.
For the Sharks, Truckie Cameron, Dobson and Bloom were all battling hard.
A five goal to one term had the Kangaroos in control 37 points up at the long break.
The second half was fairly one sided with Fish Creek adding a further 10 goals to two for the Sharks, the conditions difficult to say the least and although the rain held off the wind wreaked havoc with the players kicking, particularly kicking on goal. Fish Creek had 8 different goal scorers whereas Tarwin only had two.
The Kangaroos were too strong right throughout the day eventually running out 88 point winners.
Next week, Fish Creek is at home to MDU while the Sharks are headed to Foster to take on the Tigers.
