Footscray remain in the hunt for a top four spot following a come-from-behind win over Richmond in round 14 of Peter Jackson VFL at VU Whitten Oval. The Bulldogs had trailed all day before former Essendon player, Lauchlan Dalgleish, booted the final three goals of the match to inspire his side to a nine point victory 11.8.74 to 9.11.65.
The Tigers chances of playing finals are all but over and despite playing well in patches in recent games, they haven't been able to find a win they desperately needed to stay in touch with the top eight. There was a good crowd on hand with plenty of interest in both forward lines featuring Bulldogs Tom Boyd (above) and dumped Tiger Tyrone Vickery.
Sandringham have put an end to the Northern Blues three game winning streak and in the process cemented a spot in the top four with a polished 40-point win in round 12 of Peter Jackson VFL at Preston City Oval. The margin could well have been greater had it not been for the Zebra's inaccuracy, however a five goal to one second term opened the game up and they eventually cruised to a 13.24.102 to 9.8.62 victory.
Nick O'Kearney set the tone early for the visitors with two first quarter goals, he finished with three and 27 disposals to be in his side's best, he was well supported by Cameron Shenton (3 goals) while Eli Templeton (37 disposals) and Brodie Murdoch (30, 2 goals) were prolific through the middle for the winners.
