Vultures vs Cats

The Cats seized control early, racing to a commanding lead in the first half. Tasmanian forward Thomas Reeves was unstoppable, booting five of his seven goals before halftime. It finished 1.3 (9) to 18.6 (114) in favour of Broadbeach at the break.

Despite trailing by a daunting 105 points at the halfway mark, Mt Gravatt refused to wave the white flag. Veteran Matthew Hardess and Kaeden Corboy led an inspired fightback after the break, with the Vultures’ pressure making it a more even contest after halftime (26 to 36 in favour of Broadbeach in the third).

While disappointed with the 28.18 (186) to 7.6 (48) loss, Vultures coach Hamish Mitchell took plenty of positives from his young team’s second-half resurgence against their more seasoned opponents. “When going up against a bigger and more experienced side, it’s challenging,” Mitchell said, “The second half was 10 goals to six, much more even than what we played in the first half.”
