Power outplay Drouin

WONTHAGGI Power secured a comfortable win over Drouin on Saturday.
Power bounced back after a disappointing loss against Leongatha and finished this week’s match 60 points ahead of its opponents.
From the first quarter, the game belonged to Power. The Wonthaggi side kicked five unanswered goals for the quarter, while the defence held Drouin to two behinds.
With five goals to his name, Jack Blair was Power’s leading goal kicker. However, the goal kicking was well shared with Dominic O’Connor, Lachlan Jones, Patrick Ryan, Jack Ridewood and Tom Davey kicking two each.
The second quarter was a similar affair. Drouin fought back and managed to get three goals on the board, but Wonthaggi was relentless and piled on four of its own.
After the long break, some inaccurate kicking from Power saved Drouin from an even greater defeat.
Whilst it was able to put up another four goals, its behinds tally reached nine.
Unluckily for Drouin, Power’s backline was in full control of the game and kept them down to just one goal.
With one quarter left to prove itself, Drouin kept fighting.
Exhibiting a last mighty effort, Drouin recorded four goals. With two goals each, Luke Ferguson and Michael Theodoridis were Drouin’s top goal kickers.
Regardless, Wonthaggi drove it home and celebrated a massive 18 goal haul.
The final score was Wonthaggi 18.11.119 to Drouin 8.7.55.
Coming into round 13, Wonthaggi is sitting just outside the top five. It will face eighth placed Bairnsdale this week and – if it continues its form – another win may be on the cards.
