THE Murray Bushrangers remain in fourth position on the ladder despite being belted by 95 points by Dandenong in TAC Cup action at the Norm Minns Oval on Saturday.

The Bushrangers were never in the contest, giving up five first quarter goals to trail by 26 points at the first change.

The second quarter saw just one goal kicked, however, Dandenong could have led by more had they kicked straighter – registering 1.7 for the term.

But the league powerhouse turned up the heat in the second half, booting 11 goals to the Bushrangers’ two, to run out winners 17.15 (117) to 3.4 (22).

Jack Lonie (five goals) and Nathan Gardiner (four) provided a double act up forward for the Stingrays while Dale Gowley, Mitchell White and Angus Scott also dominated.

For the Bushrangers, Daniel Howe, Jackson Clarke, James Martyn and Nick Mellington tried hard, however, the gap between the sides was huge.

Matthew Brett was the only multiple goal kicker for the Bushrangers with two.

The Bushrangers will look to regroup this week before travelling to Highgate Reserve to face North Ballarat on Saturday.
