Wolves blitz Rovers for grand fi­nal berth

Pilbara News - - Sport - Tom Zaun­mayr

The Wick­ham Wolves re­serves stormed straight through to the grand fi­nal af­ter a com­mand­ing 106-point win over the Port Hed­land Rovers.

The Wolves have been the dom­i­nant re­serves side all year and proved their firm ti­tle favourite sta­tus once again with the 18.12 (120) to 2.2 (14) vic­tory.

There were no sur­prises about the lead­ing goal scorer.

Beau Alec booted five to push his sea­son tally up to 59, more than dou­ble Mark Cash­ion’s to­tal in sec­ond place.

From the start, the in­tent was clear from the Wolves.

A 4.2 first quar­ter was fol­lowed by a huge six-goal sec­ond term to blow the lead out to 56 points at half time.

The Rovers barely had a chance to leave their defensive 50 in the sec­ond quar­ter.

The Wolves mid­field pro­vided clean ball to the for­wards time and again from the start of the sec­ond half.

Any sug­ges­tions the home side would take its foot off the gas af­ter gain­ing a big lead were quickly quashed as they went on to boot an­other five goals in the third term.

Ay­den Say­lor, Ken­dall Tay­lor and Chris Milne each added three goals to their sea­son tally.

The Wolves for­wards lost their line in the fi­nal quar­ter, kick­ing 3.7, while the Rovers went score­less.
