Sandringham vs Geelong
Venue: TEAC Oval
A. McDonald, Miller, Clark
The Cats boasted 15 players with AFL experience against four on the Zebras side, and Sandringham were duly mauled by their older, bigger opponents.
Despite kicking into the wind in the first quarter the Cats were dominant. Despite being held to two goals in the second term they stopped Sandringham from capitalising on their advantage and only inaccurate kicking stopped the match from being over at the long break.
