Match Report


Kicking with a slight breeze to the Chadstone end, DLS started brilliantly, but its  fine contested footy was not adequately rewarded, due to hurried kicks on goal, resulting in 3 behinds, before Nathan Scollo goaled from an off the ground kick in the goal square at the 5 minute mark.

Another period of wasted chances ensued, before Scollo, freed in a marking contest, got DLS & his 2nd goal at the 7 minute mark. At this point DLS had scored 2 goals from 9 scoring shots on goal. Beaumaris’ 2nd entry into the forward arc resulted in their 1st  goal at the 16 minute mark.

Their 4th entry resulted in their 2nd goal at the 22 minute mark.

To summarise: DLS won the great majority of contested footy but the ratio of scores to forward entries was about 20%. In contrast Beaumaris’s delivery to leading forwards, resulted in their ratio being around 90%

DLS 2.9=21 Beaumaris 2.2=14


This quarter was a replica of the 1st unfortunately! 5 misses & a couple of OOF, before Indi marked from a strong lead and converted from CHF at the 15 minute mark. In between that time, Beaumaris goaled at the 6 minute mark, to reduce the margin then, to 3 points. This was a totally unreal situation given the overall control that DLS had of the game!

Beaumaris had lifted their intensity, but DLS still controlled the contested footy & had good running plays from Matt Hill, Campbell Bedford & Christian Algeri, while 2022 B & F Fraser Cameron, was influential in the packs!

The backs meanwhile were experiencing more opportunities to display their skills with Joe Lloyd & Ryan O’Meara prominent!

But it was a clean pick up & snap from Seb Filipovic that restored some supremacy to the scoreline! Beaumaris intercepted an attempt to change of direction to goal at the 22 minute mark to leave DLS with an 11 point margin at half time.

The proficiency of the Beaumaris entries to their forwards was bleedingly obvious. Although reduced by the fine work of DLS’s defensive unit, I guess their scoring ratio was still about 60-70%

DLS 4.15=39 Beaumaris 4.4=28


Like the previous 2, this qtr again reflected the relative scoring efficiencies of the teams. Beaumaris high, DLS wasteful!

Indi was interfered with at CHF & goaled from the resultant free at the 6 minute mark. Beaumaris were now breaking even around the contests. DLS again did not capitalise on some excellent running football, when their entries were deficient, or when successful, the resultant shot on goal, missed 3 times.

An excellent intercept by Hugh Nicholson & an equally excellent delivery to Cameron, who goaled from CHF at the 13 minute mark. Beaumaris hit back 3 minutes later. From a crowded pack on the HFF, Algeri dribbled a ball to Scollo, alone in the goal square for DLS’s 7th at the 18 minute mark.

Beaumaris goaled, again from a perfectly delivered pass to the leading forward, to reduce the margin to 17 at ¾ time.

DLS 7.16=58 Beaumaris 6.5=41


To their credit, Beaumaris contested strongly in the final quarter, winning their share of each contest, of which there were many. A snapped goal to Indi, with assistance from Scollo, at the 3 minute mark, extended the lead to 23 points. Beaumaris responded & were rewarded for their hard contesting with a goal at the 6 minute mark, to keep the game alive!

Nearly 11 minutes of play ensued before Trent Shannon marked, a good pass from Cameron, to gaol from CHF & it appeared DLS had sealed the result. Beaumaris continued to contest strongly & goaled at the 22 minute mark to basically square the quarter. A fine effort.

The game finished on a low note, in contrast to the rest of the match, when a Beaumaris player was reported for a late, high hit in a marking contest. DLS failed to score from the relayed free and 50 meter penalty.
