Should be a great game down at the the Borough. Can Port keep its unbeaten record at home intact?

Terrific to see Andrew Gilham back in the mix for a senior spot. The Bullants looked good when the two sides met earlier this season..

Got to Port with very good conditions for footy.. It was the first weekend that for me had a finals type feel about it.

Bright sunshine, a decent breeze to the Williamstown Rd end, and two traditional VFA clubs duking it out.

Port had a few changes, with McMahon, Smith and Schultz all oout of the side from last week. Bonaddio came back in after his game in the two's, while Jason Kennedy made his senior debut.

A tight tussle for 3 quarters before the Borough kicked away in the last. At quarter time it was all tied up 3.5.23 apiece, before Port put on a decent lead to the half time break 9.8 to 5.6. However the Bullants fired again in the third, levelling scores once again, both sides on 12.10 each. The momentum felt like it was going Prestons way, despite Port coming home with the breeze.

The 3/4 time break saw Ayres emplore the players to take the game on. I thought the body language was a little bit of a concern, and the usual forwards, backs, mids groups the team breaks up into was cut short.. Ayres probably feeling the importance of getting his message through to the players.

From the outset, Port worked really hard through the midfield, and kicked an early goal, and setting the tone for the last quarter, kicking 8 unanswered goals, Preston failing to post a major in the last term.

Sam Dwyer was outstanding again today, getting plenty of the ball, and polishing it off with 5 classy goals.
