  1. Casey travelled across to Frankston to meet its bayside neighbour and won an unusual encounter by 31 points to take a mortgage on a top four spot with two rounds left to play before the finals. The sun shone and conditions at ground level looked favourable but the white caps on the waters of Port Phillip Bay in the background signalled that swirly winds would be the order of the day and that they would favour the Kars Street end to which the home side kicked first. The Dolphins opened with an early goal but Casey replied after a James Magner mark in front. The game never hit any high notes for the rest of the term and became a battle of the defences with the Scorpions controlling the play through the agency of the likes of Luke Tynan, Joel Macdonald, James Sellar, Sam Blease and Neville Jetta. In hindsight, the first term against the wind which saw the Scorpions leading by a point set up their win. Casey controlled the second quarter but inaccuracy in front of goal saw their half time lead limited to only 24 points while it held Frankston scoreless for the term. Gawn was rucking well and taking marks around the ground while Magner and Rodan were winning the ball at stoppages. Still, the absence of Jesse Hogan was clear and obvious with nobody on the forward line able to take control with the big grab in the packs. Frankston came out after half time with a steely determination and completely turned the game around. They attacked the goals incessantly and put great pressure on the Casey defence which was forced into costly errors that reaped rewards for the home side that took little time to make up the gap and take a 19 point lead into the final break. They had kicked seven goals three behinds to nothing and had the local crowd full of voice and the Casey team stunned. What followed was a nine-goal final quarter onslaught by a Casey Scorpions team that was stunned into action after one of its worst quarters of football for the year. Certainly, the wind was an influence but the thought of being tipped out of the top four after such a good start to the season must have come into play. Neville Jetta got them going and goal followed goal. Suddenly, the lead was theirs. By mid-term the Scorps were 7 points up but the Dolphins were still fighting hard. The killer blow came when Tim Smith intercepted to run straight into goal for his second of the quarter. An altercation followed and a free in front was paid to Nathan Page. The double goal knocked the stuffing out of the home side and Casey finished with two more goals for a 31-point victory which also killed off the Dolphins chances of sneaking into the finals. Best for the Scorpions was Jetta who defended stoutly early and kicked two crucial final quarter goals at the end. Jimmy Toumpas picked up 25 touches and David Rodan 22. In the end, it was Casey's desire to work hard and get the hands on the footy first which was lacking in the third quarter but very much evident in the last that got it well across the line.

    CASEY WINS BATTLE BY THE BAY

    CASEY WINS BATTLE BY THE BAY by KC from Casey Spectators attending any clash between local rivals Casey Scorpions and Frankston can always count on an afternoon of tough, tightly contested football irrespective of the teams' ladder positions and Saturday's game at Kars Street by the bay was no exception. Although the visitors finished the game in front by six goals at the final siren, the stand alone Dolphins belied their lowly ladder standing with their enthusiasm and persistent attack on the football but they simply lacked the necessary big man strength and the midfield class necessary to maintain scoreboard pressure on their opponents. Frankston opened the game full of running in a ferocious start and went coast to coast to set up the first goal before the Scorpions settled down and briefly took control with goals to Leigh Williams, Lucas Cook (from a lucky free) and Tom Couch. The Dolphins worked their way back into the game making the most of some wasteful kicking for goal by Casey with a late burst of goals that saw them in front by two points at the first break. The Scorpions retook the initiative with an early goal from Ricky Petterd and another from Jack Fitzpatrick with a shot from near the boundary and, with Luke Tynan and Evan Panozza getting on top in defence, it was only some wayward kicking for goal that limited Casey's lead to just 13 points at half time. Coach Brett Lovett would not have been pleased with his team's wasted opportunities in the opening half but their efforts in the premiership quarter were outstanding. They wasted little time with an early goal to the lively Rian McGough followed by another after Tim Smith took one of his trademark screamers and the lead was soon up to over 30 points as the Scorps began to assert their stamp on the game. Fitzpatrick was dominating the rucks on his way to a 46 hit out game while Couch was well on top in the middle. He was to finish with 32 touches for the game. Other prolific ball winners were Cale Morton (29) and Jordan Gysberts (27) who displayed plenty of class after both started slowly and young Chris Clay who had a breakout game with 26 possessions, one more than Jordan Pollard and Tynan. By the final break, Casey had opened up a 37 point lead to ensure that for once their game would not end in a nail biting finish. However, the Dolphins were not to be denied and refused to give an inch as they worked hard to apply pressure to the Scorpions who were on the way to ladder leadership courtesy of a Seagull victory over the Borough at Williamstown. Frankston went goal for goal with Casey and narrowly won the final quarter by a point with some dogged and determined football. From the visitors' point of view it was satisfying to have secured the double chance with a top four finish all but assured but they will not be able to relax. Their clash next Saturday with the lowly Northern Blues is likely to prove an added challenge with the Blues' recent improved form and a thumping 99 point win over the Coburg Tigers. 2012 Peter Jackson VFL Casey Scorpions 3.6.24 6.11.47 11.13.79 15.15.105 Frankston 4.2.26 5. 4.34 6.6.42 10.9.69 Goals Casey Scorpions Couch Gysberts Morton Williams 2 Clay Cook Fitzpatrick McGough Petterd Smith Thompson Frankston Simpson Thoolen 3 Clark Martin Marusic Potts Best Casey Scorpions L Tynan Gysberts Morton Couch McGough Frankston Potts Delahunty Thoolen Simpson Van Unen Boland This week it was the turn of Casey's development league to provide a heart thumping finish.
