UNDER wet and windy conditions at Malseed Park, the Casterton-Sandford Reserves racked up their third win for the season, defeating West Gambier by 50 points.
From the outset it was clear that clean possessions were going to be difficult to come by in the slippery conditions.
The first half of the quarter saw both teams desperately scrambling for the ball, lots of to-ing and fro-ing, with neither team able to penetrate their forward 50.
West drew first blood on the scoreboard, kicking a point, which seemed to spur the Cats into motion, with a kick from Toby Murrell bouncing along the ground and through for the first goal of the game.
From then on the Cats dominated the quarter.
The defence line was a solid wall, with West unable to penetrate past Adrian Jarrad, Zack Cleary, Hamish Carlin and Hayden Smith.
Goal number two came through a great linkage play. Murrell kicked to Coach Matt Kurzman, who passed onto Rick Killey, who marked and goaled.
