TORQUAY has kept its unbeaten record intact with a thrilling eight-point win over Modewarre at Community Bank Oval.
The Tigers, who were without coach Dom Gleeson and quality forward Paul McMahon, trailed by 24 points at half time, before storming back into the contest with a seven-goal-to-one third term.
That gave Torquay a 16-point buffer at the final chance, and despite being outscored 3.2 to 2.0 in the last quarter, they were able to improve to 5-0.
Billy Henderson’s impressive start to 2017 continued with four goals, while youngster Tom Diamond, veteran Sam Wormald and league-leading goal kicker Scott Hughes both kicked two.
Billy Barnes, Matt Deledio and James Darke were the stars for the Tigers.
Coach Josh Finch, Chris Mamalis, Callum Bourke and Jackson O’Hanlon each kicked two goals for the Warriors, with captain Jake Clark and big man Daniel Sturzaker their best.
Torquay meets Portarlington ahead of the interleague break, while the Warriors travel to Newcomb.
