2016 Round 10 Seniors vs Foster

Phillip Island went down to a strong Foster side on Saturday in wet conditions at the Foster showgrounds

As soon as the reserves finished the rain came and with the Island smaller bodies they saw this as an advantage. Foster started the scoring after 7 minutes but the Island struck back straight away through Jaymie Youle, the 2 sides started to go goal for goal with Foster goaling after 14 minutes and then the Island answering straight back with a goal from Jack Taylor that had to be seen to be believed, but he will be happy to explain it to you if you ask. Taylor followed his first with his second with a set shot from the boundary. The two sides again started to exchange blows with 2 goals each to round out the quarter but the Island were up by 5 points.

Q1 Phillip Island 5.2.32 to Foster 4.3.27

Foster started to take control of the match in the second quarter and it all started in the first minute as they hit the front after just 1 minute of play. They added 4 unanswered goals before the blonde bombshell Lochie Cleeland goaled. Foster again scored late to go into the long break up by 21 points

Q2 Phillip Island 6.3.39 to Foster 8.5.53

The Island started to fight back in the third quarter with 2 early goals to James Darcy and Beau Runnalls. Foster managed just the single goal to keep their lead going into the last quarter but the lead had been reduced to just 10 points

Q3 Phillip Island 8.4.52 to Foster 9.8.62

A big final term had been set up and Foster got the dream start goaling again in the first minute, they followed this up 11 minutes in with their second of the quarter and the game seemed done. The minutes began to tick away and the Island still couldn’t manage a goal, it took til the 22nd minute of play before Matt Jackson found his way into the forward line to kick a major. Foster again had the answer to see them home by 22 points at the final siren

Full Time Phillip Island 10.6.66 def by Foster 13.10.88
