The Sandringham Zebras produced a solid pre-season showing defeating the Port Melbourne Borough 134-68 at Trevor Barker Oval on Sunday. 

 

It was a dominant performance by the Zebras, controlling the game on both the field and scoreboard from start to finish. 

 

Led by Luke Verma and Jack Sinclair with 32 and 27 disposals respectively, the Zebras look to be in good shape as they head into the regular season. 

 

The Zebras midfield proved to be the key as they dominated the centre clearances and dictated the tempo of the contest. 

 

Sandringham won the opening 8 centre clearances of the match and finished with 31 clearances opposed to 19, solidifying their dominance from the outset. 

 

Rowan Marshall and Josh Battle dominated in attack, kicking 9 goals between them and putting the contest well out of reach for the Borough. McCartin also slotted home 3 of his own, only helping his cause for enior selection. 

 

The Zebras now have a week off but will be back in action on the 9th of April when they take on Williamstown at Burbank Oval.

 

Sandringham 6.2  11.8  15.11  20.14 (134)

Port Melbourne 1.6  3.7  6.11  9.14 (68)

 

GOALS: Marshall 5, Battle 4, McCartin 3, Weickhardt 2, Answerth 2, Acres, Montagna, Curren & Sziller.
