Golden Square hands Pies a triple figure loss

Chris Freeman leads the race for the ball on Saturday.

After a wildly optimistic start to the season, Maryborough endured a routine thumping at the weekend when it came up against a strong Golden Square outfit.

The Dogs were relentless in their play, reaching triple figures by the second quarter on Saturday.

Maryborough started the game in moderate fashion, seizing every opportunity to goal by booting four majors in the first term.

However, this just didn’t cut it against the Dogs who had already secured eight goals by quarter time.

Managing just 2.3 in the second term, Maryborough fell behind in huge fashion as Golden Square put eight through the sticks and extended its lead to an unreachable 62 points.

The Dogs refused to drop the ball in the third, taking 13 shots at goal and despite just four paying off, still sitting miles ahead of the downtrodden Pies.

With a total of 134 to reach, Maryborough’s third quarter effort of one goal and one minor score was ineffective.

The home side rammed it home in the final term, slotting five goals to Maryborough’s one and coming to a massive 25.17 (167) to 8.6 (54) victory.
