Ferntree Gully 7.6.48
An excellent 5-goal first quarter set up Canterbury’s first ever win against Ferntree Gully, with this quarter’s haul proving the winning margin at the end of the day.
A solid back six led by Andrew Mack and Dave Dapiran kept the Eagles scoreless into the first break, and enabled the Cobras to attack through the midfield, with Lachy Giles running all day through the middle. The Burson brothers (working in tandem around the ground) provided first use of the ball, with excellent run from behind all match from all lines.
Up forward, Jeremy Price provided a focal point up forward and encouraged the Cobras to be more direct. Matt Auld’s return from in jury added spark up forward, while Justin Perillo’s growing confidence is also promising for the club.
Coach Zaharopoulos said of the match:
I’m extremely happy with the four quarter effort. We had the discipline to play man on man all day.
The Cobras now travel to Surrey Park looking to lock in another important win.
