Congratulations Robbo and other zebra fans.

What is it with Port Melbourne this year? Every time they begin to look good they end up losing one that you think that they will win. The only games we have lost are the ones we were firm favorites.

I didn't get to this one. Robbo or others that were at the game, what were your impressions ?

Sandy had 5 goal lead at half time and ending up winning by 8 points. Port were playing catch up all the game. Ports inaccuracy at the goals did not help them.
Similar to 2 weeks ago against Werribee when Sandy had a big lead early in the game and were able to just hang in front against surging opposition to get the 4 points. It was a perfect day for winter footy.

I worked today, so didn't get a chance to get along to the game.  I've spoken to a few who were at the game, and it sounds like another case of Port not being 'switched on' at the start of the game, and a pretty flat performance for at least the first half.

 

It seems to have happened a few times this year, against lower ranked sides generally.  I'd expect Port to be back up and about for next weeks game against the Seagulls.  

What was the crowd like?

Why does it happen. North port or anybody else? Why are we not switched on against lowly ranked sides? Underestimating oppositions?

Last time Port Melbourne were kept to 1 goal at half time was Round 4 2016 vs Willy at Willy.

Port were 1-7(13), (Willy won game 8-4 to 5-15).

from the records I can find Port's 1-6(12) at Half Time is it lowest while Gary Ayres has been coach of the club.

We must have been terrible in the first half and then decent in the 2nd. Look at 2015 v Casey at Casey that was another low scoring game for Port.
