Ormond have marched up the ladder this week after victory over Brighton Beach this week at Brighton Beach Oval.

The Kangaroos got off to a promising start, feeling right at home in the first quarter as they gained a quick lead over Ormond.

However, after kicking five goals to two in the second quarter, Ormond set the tone for the rest of the game as they gained a leg up on the Roos.

“It’s been all about adjusting since moving up from Division 2, we have just been trying to get a grip on the league standard,” said Ormond coach Matthew Wood.

The Monders continued to challenge the Brighton Beach defence, nailing another four goals in the third period, securing a 20-point lead at the last change.

Brighton Beach looked to make a late push, but the consistent forward 50 entries for Ormond made it difficult to close the gap.

“It’s been about getting the boys to stick to the plan during the game, rather than playing for themselves,” Wood continued.

With four players kicking multiple goals for the Monders, team efforts were on full display as they continuously made the right decisions, sharing the ball around.

“Hopefully the win can give the boys some more confidence, letting them know they can compete at this level.”
