WestVic celebrated their first home game of the season by completing a 6-0 rout of newly-promoted Melbourne club Bayside. Having drawn their previous two games, the win was timely for the Ballarat-based side.
WestVic scored early through midfielder Simon Churcher. Lachlan Hansford doubled the lead in the 23rd minute with a penalty corner strike. Bayside managed to generate a few chances but Nathan Geaghan and Michael Churcher stood tall in defence for WestVic. At the end of the second quarter, striker Cameron Sinclair added two goals in as many minutes to give the home side a commanding 4-goal lead at halftime.
With Jamie Lovett and Nathan Hargreaves dominating the midfield, the scoring opportunities kept coming in the third quarter and Michael Churcher and Ben Huf added their names to the scoresheet. The scoreline remained in the fourth quarter with neither team able to find the net.
FINAL SCORE: WESTVIC 5 – 1 BAYSIDE
WestVic dominated Bayside to win by 4 goals at home. Tim O’Sullivan and Connor Parsons were among the goalscorers.
