The Casey Scorpions were held goalless in the opening term for the second week in a row and once again paid heavily for their slow starting ways by crashing to defeat at the hands of VFL stand alone powerhouse Port Melbourne at North Port Oval on Saturday.

The conditions were perfect for football, the sun was shining but the goals weren't coming for the Scorpions in the early going even though twin towers in Mark Jamar and Max Gawn were winning the hit outs in the ruck. They could easily have had a good lead at quarter time had they made the most of their opportunities and were later to rue yet another slow start.

Still the 11 point quarter time deficit was easily overturned in the second term when the visitors dominated. Recruit Jordan Moncrieff kicked a goal on debut and Casey was full of run with midfielders Jordie McKenzie and Aidan Riley working hard. When Mark Jamar combined with Jack Watts for a nice goal, the Scorpions were in front and looking strong as they took a five point lead into half time.

Unfortunately, that was pretty much that for the day. The teams fought tooth and nail in the third term with Casey suffering a bad loss when defender Jack Fitzpatrick copped a heavy knock and was taken to hospital by ambulance. The Borough gained the ascendancy late in the quarter to lead by 11 points at the final break and then, their superior knowledge of the ground conditions took over and they romped away winning by 23.

Casey hosts Richmond for the first time next week in a game scheduled to start at 6.00pm.
