Chasing Tigers

PRESSURE COOKER: In a match in which the Mountain Men were under intense pressure all day, hard nut Steve Nightingale was one of Bright’s best players.

BRIGHT’S top of the table clash with Glenrowan on Saturday proved that the Kelly Tigers are still the team to beat in Ovens and King football.

But the Mountain Men were far from disgraced in the match considering the fact they had at least eight first choice players missing.

Despite going into the match under full strength the Mountain Men battled until the end.

Although soundly beaten in the clearances the other determining factors in the outcome of the game were Glenrowan’s ball use and pressure in the second quarter which resulted in a number of goals from Bright turnovers.

After an evenly matched start to the game the Mountain Men’s list of injury worries continued just halfway through the opening term when Sam Buckley came from the ground with a hamstring strain.

Glenrowan led by 11 points at quarter time but by the end of the second term they were 37 points up after kicking five goals to Bright’s lone Jai Dykstra major.
