Brook produce second half blitz

The juggernaut that is Carisbrook has delivered another devastating defeat to a would-be challenger, defeating top eight rivals Maryborough Rovers by 180 points on Saturday.

Rovers were competitive enough in the first half but eventually caved to the incredible pressure applied by the Redbacks, who kicked 21 goals after halftime to streak away to a 31.21 (207) to 4.3 (27) victory.

Ash Munari again proved unstoppable for Carisbrook, kicking 10 goals to bring his season tally to 69 majors and remain on track for a 100-goal home and away season should he maintain his current average of over six goals per game.

While challenged at times in the opening half, the Redbacks were never truly threatened on their home ground as they peppered the goal mouth in the opening term to kick 6.5 (41) to Rovers’ 1.1 (7) with the Magpies struggling to generate scoring opportunities.

Rovers managed to stifle Carisbrook’s attack somewhat in the second term, but inaccuracy by the Redbacks also played a part, as they kicked four goals and six behinds to lead by 51 points at halftime after the Magpies could manage just two more goals.

The lead Carisbrook held at halftime would more than double across the second half as the Redbacks took complete control of the game with midfielders Ayden George, Matt Jukes and Lachlan Edwards dominating.
