Bright builds momentum

FORWARD THRUST: Sam Buckley turns towards goals during Saturday’s win over Moyhu.

BRIGHT has recorded back to back wins for the first time this season.

The Mountain Men also recorded their first home win for 2016 with a 49-point, 16.9 (105) to 8.8 (56) triumph over Moyhu.

But in a blow for the team they will be without prized recruit Ben Henwood for key matches against Milawa and Glenrowan after being handed a two week suspension for striking, along with Moyhu’s Corey Smith, after an altercation in the third quarter of Saturday’s game.

Bright set up the win on the back of 12 goals in the second and third quarters, including seven unanswered in the third.

In a scrappy affair early Moyhu led 14 to 12 at quarter time after Bright had opened the game with just one goal from seven attempts.

A five goal to two second term gave Bright a 16-pont halftime advantage before they turned that into 57 points with their dominance in the third.

Moyhu doubled their goal tally in the last kicking four majors but it had no bearing on the final outcome.
