Tigers fall away in the second half against Bloods
INACCURATE kicking in front of goal has cost Portland during its clash with Terang Mortlake in the Hampden Football League at Hanlon Park on Saturday.
The Tigers could muster only eight goals from 28 scoring shots, their worst conversion of the season.
The 14.12 (96) to 8.20 (68) loss drops them out of the top five for the first time this year, down to sixth spot.
The Tigers had their chances, particularly in the first half, but their inaccuracy kept the Bloods in the game and they held just a seven-point buffer at half time.
Terang Mortlake made its moved in the third quarter, booting seven goals to six behinds to take the lead, before going on to win by 28 points.
