Driscoll’s nine hands Lions a loss

A powerhouse performance from Navarre forward Cody Driscoll has elevated the Grasshoppers to a massive 92- point win over Harcourt.

Driscoll bagged nine goals in the MCDFNL’s Sunday game at Navarre Sports Complex to outscore a powerless Harcourt off his own boot as the reigning premiers ran their way to a 22.13 (145) to 8.5 (53) win.

After a strong win over Campbells Creek in round one, Harcourt hit the ground running on Sunday, scoring the first goal through Ben Leech but the tide then turned as Navarre booted the next five goals of the game.

With ruck work by Josh Fowkes giving Navarre first use of the ball in the midfield and Brent Flood cutting an imposing figure in the backline with repeat interceptions, the Grasshoppers ran to a 5.4 (34) to 1.1 (7) lead at quarter time.
