Nine and three; did anyone pick this at the start of the year?
The Western Magpies train just keeps chugging along of late. Yesterday’s win over Broadbeach makes it nine wins from their last 10 games.
The stakes were huge for Broadbeach. It was another mini elimination final, and they started this week how they finished last week.
Klessens kicked the first for the Cats, but not long after that his day would be done courtesy of an ankle injury; a massive loss to the forward line set up of Broadbeach.
Following a low scoring quarter, Broadbeach were in front by five-points at the first change.
The second quarter opened up a little bit. The Magpies got their hands on the footy a lot more, but it was the Cats who were making the most of their chances.
In a three goal to two quarter, Broadbeach extended their lead to seven-points at the main break, but you sensed the Cats were just hanging in there.
The Magpies put their stamp on the game in the third.
They used the ball a bit better, they were getting numbers around the footy in typical fashion, and they were putting it on the scoreboard.
Two goals to Mitchell and one to Bain gave the Magpies the lead for the first time of the afternoon, and an 11-point three quarter time lead.
Broadbeach were out of petrol tickets in the last, as the Magpies kicked away.
They booted the first four goals of the quarter to put the nail in the coffin, before running out 34-point winners.
Nathan Quick was best on ground by a country mile for the Cats, and despite missing last week due to injury, Richard Wenham didn’t skip a beat across halfback.
They may have had to slog it out, but the Magpies can have a serious look at that second spot on the ladder if they keep this up.
