Wong kicks 6 for the Pies

Wong was on song from the start of the third term, booting his first major at the three minute mark to win the battle of the Melbourne recruits.Patty Rose played a lone hand up forward for Raiders, booting 5.3 he twice hit the post as Corey Lambert’s side dropped its second match of the season to slip from fourth to sixth on the ladder, while the Magpies jumped from sixth to fifth after wins against Lavington and Raiders.Porter said Wong, recruited from Williamstown CYMS after winning the VAFA goalkicking last season, “had a terrific game” and said he was only going to get better.”We haven’t got the luxury of having a big key forward up there,” Porter said.”Wongy and Matty Robins mercurial superfly on know the role they have to play.”It was always going to happen one day that Wongy would break open a game.”He probably could have k mercurial superfly icked 10 plus if his kicking boot was on.”With their impressive last start home win against Lavington still fresh in their minds, the Pies came out with all guns blazing, with Jai Canny, Josh Roman and Luke Mullins booting three of the first four goals of the game.The Magpies started with Jamie Allan forward and Matt Grossman deep in defence on Rose, who booted his first at the 25 minute mark of the opening term, courtesy of a free kick for arms over the shoulder.Wangaratta led by four points at the first change but it should have led by more, with wasted opportunities preventing it from opening up a bigger advantage.Goals were easier to come by for both teams in the second term, with Rose, who also had Aaron Braden to contend with, booting two and hitting the p mercurial superfly ost for a second time.The lead changed three times in the second term, in a battle that was predominantly being fo mercurial superfly ught in the midfield between Ben Davies, Josh McCudden and Mark Doolan, of Raiders, and Daine Porter, Ed Barlow and Allan, of Wangaratta.Raiders led by two points going into the third quarter but the lead was short lived as it turned into the Wong show in the second half.The small forward with the sticky hands booted four in the third term the first two and the last two to turn the match on its head as the arm wrestle started to turn in Wangaratta’s favour.Wangaratta booted eight goals in a row from the 20 minute mark of the third term to the 18 minute mark of the fourth quarter to put the result beyond doubt.Not helping Raiders’ cause was two crucial 50 metre penalties in the final term and Lambert said discipline was an issue that needed to be addressed before next week’s clash at North Albury.”By that stage they were on top and that was just frustration,” Lambert said.”It’s poor footy, really.”We’ll be chatting to those guys and we’ve actually got a penalty at training sessions for 50metre penalties so a few boys will be lining up, I think.”Wangaratta now enters Sunday’s home derby against Wangaratta Rovers with serious momentum at 2 2 and Porter couldn’t be happier.
