Frankston Dominated this game from start to finish with Mizzi,Goldsack and Morris their best. For Coburg Tigers first gamer Calma(NT player from Under 18 Nationals), Strachan and Caruso were their best. All in All a great day for the Dolphins. An intersting note to both of todays games is both teams wore thier Alternate Uniforms with Frankston in their White Jumpers and Coburg in the West Perth style jumper, I believe their was some miscommunication between the clubs.
