MHSOB Green 9.6-60
The Clubbies made the short trip south to EE Gunn Reserve to take on a revitalized Ormond outfit in what was a critical clash for the Thirds.
Ormond caught the Clubbies off guard early with some ruck and midfield dominance, the Clubbies missing their number one ruckman Adam Ashton, with that translating to some quick goals.
It wasn’t until the second quarter did the urgency really take hold for the Clubbies, Josh Vellin and Ben Southam starting to have an influence through the centre of the ground.
The undermanned Clubbies slimmed down the lead but Ormond kept them at arms length going into the main break, James Hansford getting busy with a couple of goals to half time.
The third term was again an arm wrestle, Ormond defending it’s lead with the Clubbies slowly closing in but not close enough.
Adam Granger had a solid second half, moving from defence to attack and making the most of the change, snagging three goals.
The Clubbies back half stood fast all day, Matt Gyrlls and Adam Jones both lodging great performances despite the pressure from Ormond.
All in all a disappointing day but sets a up a massive game against Prahan Assumption as we jostle for a finals position.
