It was a quality first half of football between two of the TSL's heavyweights at KGV, but the second half was one to forget for Magpie fans as Launceston ran out easy winners.

There was good news earlier in the week for Glenorchy with the return of Jaye Bowden, Zac Webster, Sam Reeves and James Webb, and the home team lifted with some smart ball movement in the opening term to starve the Blues of possession and take a six-point lead into the first break.

Aiden Grace was proving a headache for the visitors with three goals, capitalising on the excellent work of Harrison Gunther (4 intercepts) across half-back and the run of Ben Kamaric (12 possessions) in the middle of the ground.

Changing fortunes
The second term was a see-sawing affair, the visitors getting their running game going and booting some classy goals - highlighted by Casey Brown's one-handed scoop and snap through the big sticks - to sneak 15 points clear.

But the Magpies responded, getting their ball movement going again to find Clinton French for a coast-to-coast goal, then rediscovering their pressure game to force the ball forward, from where French converted with class.

While the game looked set for a classic second half, it was Launceston who brought the heat around the ball in the muddy conditions, dominating around the contest in the second half to blow the tight game wide open, Tim Bristow and Dylan Riley the chief destroyers.

Best for Glenorchy were Josh Arnold and Gunther, who did an outstanding job on stars Jay Blackberry and Mitch Thorp, while Rhys Mott continued his super-consistent season with another tireless effort.

Facing the Demons
It sets up a huge away clash for Glenorchy against old rivals North Hobart this Saturday, with not only the four points important but the Magpies simply needing to rekindle their impressive form after two very disappointing days in a row.

In selection news, Liam Smith, Adam Roberts and Sam Hall all got through the early game unscathed last week and appear set to return from injury, as the unavailable list continues to shrink in the lead-up to the finals.

In exciting news, Richie Dilger will play his first senior game for the club since 2014 after a string of strong performances in the development league. 

Glenorchy 7.3.45 def by Launceston 20.14.134

Goals:
Grace 4, French 2, Bester 
Best: Arnold, Gunther, Mott, Brennan, Grace, Banks-Smith, Kamaric
