Ice breaker

DISAPPOINTED by its seven-goal defeat at the hands of Sea Lake-Nandaly, Donald has bounced back in emphatic fashion against Boort before North Central football had a break for the Queen's Birthday weekend.

Following the lead set by Geelong the previous night, Donald burst into fast, free-flowing football and set up the victory with a nine-goal to nil first term.

Of these nine goals, two each were booted by Leigh Burke, Ryley Barrack (relishing his break from defence) and Cooper Anderson, who was Daicos-like but sadly suffered a knock to the face and took no further part in the game.

The Blues’ running players ran amok early with wingman Cody Brooks, Ross Young, Rian McGough and Darcy Harrison setting up numerous forwards thrusts.

In the second quarter Leigh Burke added two more to his tally before finishing early with a game high of five goals.

Boort’s Levi Moss, Pat Bogers and ruckman Nathan Twigg battled hard all day without success, and it was Matt Chisari, who played his best game against the Blues, breaking the ice by kicking the Magpies’ only major for the half.
