The Borough with a chance to climb to 5th I think.

Normally these two clubs put on a classic.  Hopefully its more of the same today.  Weather outside looks ideal.

Disappointing.  I thought Mack Rivett was bloody good as was Haretuku. but it was a very poor showing from Port.  The Hawks cleaner,efficient and outbodied the Borough today.

REPORT: Tough Day for Borough against Hawks

Port Melbourne has ventured out to Box Hill City Oval and endured a difficult day at the office after being overrun to the tune of 43 points against the Hawks on Sunday afternoon.

Entering the game off the back of a significant victory over arch rivals Williamstown – and celebrating the 100th game milestone of vice-captain Tom O’Sullivan – the Borough played through a rollercoaster of momentum swings before eventually fading out in the second half against the talented Box Hill side.

The loss was compounded further by the news confirmed on Monday that star midfielder Isaac Conway will miss the remainder of season 2018 with a ruptured ACL.

He went down during the second quarter of Sunday’s clash, in the midst a rare period of the game where the Borough had actually held sway.

After quickly booting the opening two goals of the game against the breeze, Port were soon up against it as the Hawks put the foot down with four successive goals leading in to the first change.

The trend of the game worryingly continued into the commencement of the second, before a rare major to defender Dylan Van Unen sparked a mini-fightback approaching half time.

Two goals to skipper Jordan Lisle and one to Robin Nahas signified three goals in four minutes, and suddenly hopes were high as the side entered the sheds just 7 points in arrears.

Khan Haretuku spent a lot of time forward and clunked several big contested marks; none moreso than the start of the third term, where the subsequent goal – his third – would be enough to draw the side level against the breeze.

Unfortunately, that’s where the fightback would end.

The talented Hawks would proceed to boot through five goals entering three quarter-time, with much of their attacking thrusts being kick-started from Borough turnovers across half forward.

Still, with a breeze at their backs, the travelling Port fraternity remained optimistic of another fightback with one term to play and a 33-point deficit to overcome.

It wasn’t to be.

The earlier loss of Isaac Conway would prove to be pivotal in the context of the result, as the Borough sorely missed his inside grunt work and elite contested skills when the Hawks began to gather ascendancy from stoppages.

A couple of late consolation goals to Eli Templeton and Dylan Conway kept the flame flickering for a few minutes, but eventually the margin would prove too great to pull back.

To be fair to Box Hill, the final margin may have been even greater if not for inaccuracy in front of goal.

Individual winners were few and far between for the Borough, though Khan Haretuku was nothing short of outstanding, both aerially and in front of goal.

He would finish with three goals alongside Lisle, whilst Templeton won 34 possessions through the midfield to go with his major.

Mack Rivett (26 possessions) also followed up his Frank Johnson Tribute Medal-winning performance last week with another encouraging display.

In his 100th game, O’Sullivan (31 possessions) tried ever so hard to drag his side back in Conway’s absence, but was part of a well-beaten midfield brigade on the day.

The 43-point loss leaves Port Melbourne at 7-6 and clinging to a spot in the top 8 by percentage only.

It will now mean another critical game at home against in-form standalone side Coburg this Saturday.

Action at North Port Oval will commence at 2:00pm.

Box Hill Hawks 4.6-30 7.11-53 12.15-87 15.20-110

Goal Kickers: K. Haretuku 3, J. Lisle 3, R. Nahas, E. Templeton, D. Van Unen, D. Conway.
