Superoos set mark

Updated: Oct 20, 2021

A STUNNING 10 minutes of everywhere-play from Mitiamo rover Lee Dale put paid to any comeback hopes of Pyramid Hill on Saturday.

The agile smallman lifted the Superoos at John Forbes Oval as the visiting Bulldogs came back within a few goals mid-way through the third term of their Loddon Valley league match,

His work rate lifted and two quick goals put extra spark into the reigning premiers who remain undefeated after six rounds.

Dale was among the Superoos’ best as the team, undermanned by injuries, firmly established flag favouritsm ahead of the clash with the other undefeated side, Bridgewater, after their handy bye this week.

Pyramid had applied pressure on Mitiamo’s defence, breaking through in the second and third terms with goals from the like of Mann and Catherwood just before half-time.

They made the most of running for the first 10 minutes after the long break before Dale brought the Superoos to their dominant best.

A brief resurgence by the Bulldogs had them within three goals but the momentum was with the reigning premiers and they were not going to stumble with Dale booting a major off the ground.

Injury setbacks for Miti, including defender Ben Bacon later in the term, did not hinder.

Earlier, star recruit Carl Nicholson injured his knee playing his first game for the Superoos.

Pyramid Hill kept trying to drive deep forward where they were confronted by a confident home side defence.

Ruck rover Lucas Matthews took some telling marks in the final term, projecting play back in Mitiamo’s favour. Forward Dylan Mutu was named Mitiamo’s best while Tyrone Downie headed the goalkicking with three.

Bailey George put in another tireless game for the Bulldogs.

Calivil broke through for its first win of the seasson, beating Inglewood and coming home with a nine-goal final term, Jake Lowry kicking six for the match. Bridge-

water, also hit by injuries, had to bring in three debutantes (Darcy Wood, Hamish Terry and Tait Poyser) for their part of the commanding victory over Maiden Gully.

Bears Lagoon Serpentine, while well beaten, had a brilliant last term - 5.2 to 2-1 - against Marong.
