It had been four weeks and zero wins since Victor Harbor’s last home game and the Roos looked keen to make amends against Myponga/Sellicks.

All the play was inside Victor’s forward 50 and Alleway posted the first major. Haverty slotted an immediate reply for the Mudlarks and the quarter finished with a great long shot from Victor’s Bartram. The margin could have blown out beyond the visitors reach, but Victor kept them in it with a wasteful 2–7 to 1–1.

Osborne opened the scoring with a goal for Victor with his fourth attempt for the day and followed soon after with a second. Wade was again brilliant with his pace and ability to win contests, Bartkett, Brown and Simmons were tight in defence. The pace of  Mudlark Stangroome set up Duldig with their only goal for the term. 

Another piece of great work from Wade planted a daisy cutter on Alleways chest, to stretch the margin out to 33 points, but the Mudlarks kickd two goals in as many minutes.

It was during a stoppage from a pack inside Victor’s forward line that the call went to the boundary for a stretcher. The concerning part was how quickly the umpire signalled for it and how obvious the injury must have been to Roo Allen Weetra. With ambulance arriving after 35 minutes, match was abandoned with Victor leading 6–11 to Myponga 4-- 1.
