Maryborough go down to Gisborne by 112 points

Daniel Vadala weighs up his options during Maryboroughʼs clash with Golden Sqaure earlier this month. Vadala was named in the best for the side against Gisborne at the weekend.

Maryborough was outclassed on Saturday, falling to Gisborne by a hefty 112 points.

The Dogs had already dealt teams stronger than Maryborough triple figure losses, so Saturday’s defeat would probably come as no surprise.

The first quarter was Maryborough’s best, but it couldn’t save them from an inevitable defeat.

The Pies kicked 3.2 to Gisborne’s 1.1 in the first term, awarding the visitors a 13-point lead heading into the second quarter.

The Dogs hit the ground running in the second, booting eight goals to Maryborough’s one, making up for lost time and getting the ball rolling on another percentage-boosting win.

Gisborne’s halftime lead of 32 points was more than doubled in the third term, with a massive eight goals and six behinds added in comparison to Maryborough’s 1.3.

The Pies kicked two majors in the final term, but this paled in comparison to Gisborne’s seven leaving the Pies with their second triple-figure loss for the year.
