Port Melbourne advances to Foxtel Cup semi-final
PORT Melbourne has held off a tough and rugged South Adelaide by 22 points at the MCG on Saturday to move through to the semi-finals of the Foxtel Cup.
Shaking off a strong challenge from the Panthers, the premier side in the VFL won 12.6 (78) to 8.8 (56).
WAFL side Claremont, one of the favourites to take out this year’s title, awaits the Borough in the next round.
Sam Dwyer (26 disposals and two goals) and Toby Pinwill (25) were both prolific for Port Melbourne, sparking their team through the midfield with an unrelenting attack on the footy.
Adrian Bonaddio (two goals) was also important, using his strength to out-position opponents.
