Maryborough has redeemed itself of a round one defeat, claiming a close 14-point win over South Bendigo at the weekend.
The Magpies’ winning streak has continued, with the side claiming its fourth scalp of the season at the weekend and enjoying the satisfaction of beating out the Bloods, the side that handed Maryborough its first loss of the season back in round one.
The first quarter of Saturday’s game was worrying, with the Magpies missing six important shots at goal and trailing 2.6 (18) to 5.4 (34) by the quarter time siren.
But after working so hard to overcome their own downfalls, the Magpies were not ready to throw in the towel and came out firing in the second quarter.
Slotting a lead-winning six goals and one behind while allowing the Bloods just 3.1 put the Pies in front by a slim two points as the halftime siren sounded.
The fight back was impeccable from the Pies, but the dreaded third quarter lay ahead and there was no guarantee for either sides’ fate.
