An improving Belgrave faced Seville who found themselves back at home after 6 weeks on the road due to ground maintenance issues.
Seville came out firing slamming on 8 goals for the quarter with Domenic ‘Sauce Aioli’ Aloi and Rob Petracca nailing 2 each.
Seville’s forwards were unstoppable in kicking 7 out of the 8 goals for the quarter and at quarter time the Blues up by 49 points.
The second quarter begins with a Belgrave goal in the first minute of the quarter and maybe sign’s of a mini-revival. Seville was having none of that, clickng into gear and slammed on 5 unanswered goals.
Things could have been worse for Belgrave if the ‘Tip Rat’ Dylan Broadway hadn’t hit the post 3 times in the half.
The Blues had winners all over the ground with Bayley Sciortino, Paul Bailey and Jack Nolan controlling things down back while Jake Strachan and Jack Coshutt were racking up the numbers through the middle.
The forwards seemed to have found their spark again doing the little things that helped those around them. Shepherds, spoils, pressure acts and working for each other were a pleasure to watch.
A 7-goal to 2 second quarter saw the Blues head into the main break 80 points up.
The third quarter started with a Belgrave goal and it took Seville 15 minutes to register their first
Seville kicked 4-8 for the quarter while Belgrave slotted 4-1.
The orange break saw the Blues up by 87 points.
An 8-goal quarter by the Blues showed they didn’t take their foot off the accelerator.
Broadway banged his fifth for the game with a ‘Dyl-icious’ solo effort in front of his home supporters and he let them know he was up and about. “Get around me” he screamed to his adoring fans and teammates while pumping his fist skyward.
A touch of the fumbles saw Petracca cough up the pill which landed in the arms of big Sauce Aoli who registered his eighth major for the game in a dominant performance.
A good all-around performance from the Blue Boys and a much-improved effort from the previous week.
The Blues now travel to the Mick Morland Reserve in Clyde North to take on Berwick Springs in the Match of the Day this Saturday.
