Geelong West Giants (3rd) vs. Inverleigh (4th)
Saturday, April 29, 5:30pm
A 10-goal third quarter blitz has helped Inverleigh return quickly to the winner’s list, with the Hawks handing Geelong West an 84-point hiding under light at West Oval.
After a competitive first half, after which the visitors held a 16-point lead, Inverleigh showed no signs of fatigue despite just a four-day break following their physical ANZAC Day clash with Bannockburn.
Jak Kennedy Hunt took his season tally to 24 after a seven-goal haul, while Dalton Grundell (five goals) and Nathan Mayes (four) ensured the Hawks had plenty of options going forward.
Nick Walsh and Blake Hutchinson also starred for Inverleigh.
Veteran forward Adam Vaughan was the Giants’ best with five goals, while Casey Nance kicked three majors.
West will host Corio next week, while Inverleigh returns home for the first time since before Easter for a meeting with Anakie.
