Tracking nicely

GLENROWAN is enjoying its best ever start to a season in the Ovens and King Football League after chalking up its sixth straight win on Saturday.

The Tigers were never troubled by Greta, slamming on nine goals to three in the second quarter to establish a 52-point lead at halftime, going on to win the match by 68.

Coach Nigel Robinson, who won his fair share of possessions early before sitting out the second half with a knee injury, said the Tigers were “tracking nicely”, but admitted the real tests were yet to come.

“After we beat Moyhu in round two we really set ourselves the goal to be 6-0, then 7-0 heading into the break,” Robinson said.

“We’ve had a fairly easy run so far, fortunately, but it gets a lot tougher after the interleague break with North Wang and then Milawa.”

Heading into the match the Tigers’ biggest concern was inaccuracy, having booted a wasteful 74.89 over the first five rounds.

But that wasn’t an issue against the Blues as Glenrowan registered 25.11, including 12.3 after halftime.
