TWO BLUES SEEK SEVEN IN A ROW STREAK AT HOME
REWARD for doing the hard yards early in the year when we played six of the first eight games away from home is coming now as we stay at DW Lucas Reserve for a second successive week for Saturday’s clash with Old Peninsula.
There is a score to settle as the Pirates players and supporters were very vocal enjoying an upset win in our early season clash. The round eight clash was an ‘ambush’ with the home team Pirates slamming on the first seven goals of the game before going on to post a 45 point win.
Peninsula now sits sixth on the ladder but out of VAFA Division 1 finals contention while the third placed Two Blues have their sights firmly set on second position and the coveted double chance.
It can be fraught with danger to gaze too far ahead, but surely the Two Blues will bring a steely determination to extend the winning streak to seven.
Last Saturday Preston Bullants gave the Two Blues an early scare, leading by seven points early in the second quarter. But a third term 10 goal to nil blitz iced the game and set up a 95 point win.
