Pe­tracca runs amok

Sunday Territorian - - SPORT -

AN ex­plo­sive mid­field per­for­mance from Chris­tian Pe­tracca set the tone as Mel­bourne opened their pre­sea­son cam­paign with a 33point win over Ade­laide.

A slimmed-down Pe­tracca was in Mel­bourne’s on-ball mix – and at the heart of ev­ery­thing good for the Demons – in a see-saw­ing, wind-af­fected con­test at Casey Fields.

Out of con­tract at sea­son’s end, the ex­plo­sive mid­fielder had 10 pos­ses­sions in a su­perb open­ing quar­ter.
