Southern Telegraph - - Sport - Ai­den Boy­ham

Rock­ing­ham Rams roared back into form against the Wa­roona Demons on Sun­day at An­niver­sary Park, crush­ing the 2017 grand fi­nal­ists 32.12 (204) to 5.5 (35).

In one of the big­gest blowouts of the 2018 Peel Foot­ball League sea­son so far, the Rams de­stroyed Wa­roona in every facet of the game as they recorded a huge 169 point win that pro­pelled them back into sec­ond on the lad­der.

Spurred on by a per­for­mance which in­cluded 13 dif­fer­ent goal kick­ers, the Rams blitzed Wa­roona early on as they opened up a 68point lead by quar­ter-time.

Things didn’t get any bet­ter for the visi­tors in the sec­ond term as they trailed a ram­pant Rams by 110 points at the main break.

Even though the game was well and truly over in the sec­ond half, Rock­ing­ham did not let up, with the likes of Tyler Sut­ton, Fraser Mil­lar and Mitch Curnow pil­ing on the mis­ery for Wa­roona in the mas- sive win. Sut­ton fin­ished with seven goals, while Fraser Mil­lar booted five out of the mid­field.

Curnow bagged three of his own in the win, while Christo­pher Oliver, Luke Dowl­ing and Wil­liam Zilko all kicked three goals each as well.

Rock­ing­ham coach Scott Franklin was de­lighted with the win and said ev­ery­thing clicked for the Rams.

“Our con­tested footy was awe­some and our tack­ling pres­sure was awe­some,” Franklin said.

“The thing we did bet­ter than what we have done the last few weeks is that we just moved the ball re­ally well.

“De­fen­sively, we were be able to kick our way through with­out the ball touch­ing the ground.

“We’d go from one end to the other and fin­ish it off so it was just one of those days where ev­ery­thing clicked, which was good.”

On Satur­day night the Rams are sure to face a stiffer test as they bat­tle Halls Head at An­niver­sary Park. Bounce­down is at 6pm.
