Wayback 24.21 (165) def Boston 1.2 (8)
Wayback showcased its dominant midfield through a 157-point win against Boston at Poole Oval on Saturday.
It was a game where the wind played a big factor, causing havok with kicks throughout.
Shaun Maxfield set up several inside 50s with his clearing kicks with the wind and after three behinds Wayback got its first goal from the returning James Blewit.
Boston’s defence tried to get out of the 50 but Wayback were able to read the play and get the turnovers, with Ben Sampson leading the way in the first quarter.
Wayback piled on goals in the first quarter, finishing with six to lead by 42 points at quarter time.
With the wind Boston would look to change the momentum but Wayback continued to dictate play in the middle and started the second quarter with a goal to Jonty Seal.
Boston would score its only goal in the second quarter, through Thomas Reynolds-Rowe, as Wayback continued to apply pressure with numbers around the contests.
Thomas Easson was everywhere and picked up many possessions to push Wayback forward, Toby Rawson had a good return showing great defensive pressure and scoring three goals.
A nine goal quarter saw Wayback blow the lead out to 90 points at half time.
Wayback’s attack did not relent and despite kicking nine behinds in the third, they managed another four goals to bring the margin to triple digits.
Boston’s defence including Reynolds-Rowe, Sam Kolega and Willy Woldt were working hard but once they got the turnovers they found few options in the middle.
Brodie Falciani was also not afraid to get into the contests and took some important marks.
Boston were playing for pride in the final quarter but Wayback’s defence held strong, allowing one behind.
Another five goals saw the Demons bounce back from the Marble Range loss in style, winning by 157-points.
Blewit and Josh McKenzie top scored with four goals, while Sampson, Rawson, Shaun Lever and Matthew Goodwin kicked three each.
With just two goals in their past two games, Boston has showed their young side still has a lot of developing to do.
