A NINE-goal to nil third term set Southern Districts on the road to a big win over the Tiwi Bombers at Gardens Oval.

Led for the most part by towering ruckman Patrick Gallow and a dominant midfield where Jack Sexton was outstandin­g, the Crocs recorded a 23.7 (145) to 10.12 (72) win.

Relatively new to the game, Gallow said each match is part of a learning curve and he is trying to improve all aspects in the process.

“It was a good win today, we’ve had a few slow starts to games and today was no exception, but our plan is to reset every quarter and that’s what happened in the third,” Gallow said.

“I try to improve every game — obviously AFL is a new sport for me, and I’m trying to win as many taps as possible.’’

Bigger-bodied Southern Districts players dominated early possession, but some resolute Bomber defence held them at bay until Jack Ganley found space and strolled into goal for the first of the match at the fiveminute mark.

The pace of the Tiwis was a feature, allowing the Douglas Cunningham and Harley Puruntatam­eri combinatio­n to get the islanders on the scoreboard.
