PORT Melbourne has hardly put a foot wrong under the coaching of Gary Ayres.
But on Saturday at Cramer St it stumbled against old foe the Northern Bullants and fell to a 43-point loss, its first defeat of this nascent VFL season.
A bad start was the finish of the Boroughs. Kicking with a decent wind they were outscored five goals to four in the first quarter.
â€œWe well and truly knew it was game on at that early stage,â€ Ayres said on Sunday morning.
â€œThey put a lot of pressure on us and we couldnâ€™t absorb it. We turned the ball over and they made the most of their opportunities. They played well.â€
