The Peckers looked strongwith Ronald Carbine, Kingsley Bilney Jnr and Lindsay Benbolt back from playing in the Don McSweeny Aboriginal Lands Cup the previous weekend.

Mallee Park struck quickly with Scott Young getting the first goal of the game.

The Peckers controlled most passages of play early and were keeping the ball near or inside their 50 for much of the quarter.

Boston’s defenders were working overtime but Mallee Park were setting up too many opportunities.

A four goal to none quarter saw Mallee Park lead by 28 points at quarter time.

Boston tried to lift in the second, using quick passes to move the ball forward but Mallee Park had superior numbers in defence.

John Miller was in red hot form as he helped set up Mallee Park’s momentum by running the ball out of defence.

Corey Ware kicked his second goal of the game, which proved to be Mallee Park’s only goal for the quarter as Boston’s defensive pressure kept the Peckers from setting up scoring shots.

Christian Dorward continued his great form in defence while captain Sam Kolega went after the contested football.

Normally up forward coach Isaac Christian had a good first half in the midfield and helped to drive Boston forward while Willy Woldt put his speed to good use.

Despite this Boston couldn’t make it count on the scoreboard but they did get their first goal through Ben Leahy to still trail by 28 points at half time.

Mallee Park went into the half determined and looked to put the game out of all doubt.

Two goals from Young and one from Kingsley Bilney Jnr saw the Peckers stretch to a near 50-point lead.

Ware and Young were instrumental in getting the ball inside Mallee Park’s 50 while its midfield moved well with effective disposals.

Boston’s midfield were making errors which Mallee Park capitalised on, a saving grace for the Tigers was its defence who kept the margin from extending further.

But a four goal to none quarter saw Mallee Park enter the final quarter with a game winning 58-point lead.

Mallee Park started the fourth quarter on a high note as Bilney Jnr made a centre break to set up Graham Johncock who kicked the goal within the first minute.

Follow up goals to Corey Ware and Fabian George added further pain to the Tigers, who had trouble getting effective disposals.

Boston finally goaled through Paul Theodosiou but the positivitywas short lived as soon Mallee Park celebrated Hippy Wanganeen’s first goal in his first A grade game.

Adam Hywood lifted for Boston and scored the team’s last two goals for the match but Boston were missing more than they were hitting.

Adding to the woes Christian limped of the field in the last quarter with what looked like an ankle injury.

Three goals each to Ware, Johncock and Young helped Mallee Park run away with the 70-point win.
