Roos remain top dogs after fending off Magpies

CLARENCE remained undefeated on top of the TSL ladder after seeing off a determined Glenorchy challenge in their game at KGV yesterday.

In a hard-fought and close contest for most of the day, the Roos led by 19 points at half-time after a five-goal to one second quarter and maintained that buffer through the second half to win 12.10 (82) to 9.11 (65).

The Magpies took the game up to the Roos and had their chances but inaccurate kicking for goal proved costly especially in the first term with the breeze when they managed 2.7.

Trent Standen kicked four goals for Clarence with Aaron French finishing on two and the competition's leading goalkicker James Charlesworth managing only one for the game.

Brady Jones was outstanding as the Roos' best player with good support from French and Tim Castle.

Matthew Joseph booted three goals for Glenorchy and Aaron Cornelius and Rhys Mott two each.

Matthew Rainbird was the best for the Magpies.

LAUDERDALE was the big winner over the Tigers with Thor Boscott grabbing seven goals and Nick Dodge five to help the Southern Bombers to a 27.21 (183) to 6.6 (42) victory.

The Bombers dominated the game after quarter-time and booted 18 goals to two in the second half to run away with a percentage- boosting win.

Dodge was awarded best on ground honours with Bryce Walsh and Boscott other good players for Lauderdale with the Southern Bombers having 13 goalkickers for the game.

Luke Graham was the Tigers' only multiple goalkicker with two and was their best player.
