Wayward kicking threatened to derail Glenorchy’s charge to a clean sweep over the old enemy, but eventually their contested-ball dominance proved too much for Clarence as the Pies sealed the Bingley-Linton Cup for the sixth straight year.

Remarkably, on a beautiful day for football at Bellerive, the visitors managed just 11 goals from 34 shots, with 17 registering a minor score and six sailing completely wayward.

However, after the Magpies were jumped by a fierce Clarence side early, that inaccuracy around goal was the only blemish on a quality second-half performance, where the victors led inside 50 entries 26-13 and booted 7.11 to 2.5.

Stars aplenty
The hard ball troika of Rhys Mott (23 possessions, 10 inside 50s), Ben Kamaric (24 possessions, 9 clearances, 8 tackles) and Cal Daly (10 clearances, 7 hard ball gets) were again at the heart of it, feasting on the ruck work of Cam Duffy and Sam Hall, who combined to win hit-outs 58-22.

Harrison Gunther was a star at both ends. Sent forward in the absence of Jaye Bowden, the 20-year-old booted a pair of first-half majors, before heading back after intermission to subdue Clarence dangerman Chris Nield, who was rarely sighted once Gunther took the job.

The Roos’ best was coach Jeromey Webberley, who booted four brilliant goals in the opening hour to put his team 21 points in front at half-time.

But stand-in Pies skipper Josh Arnold met the challenge head-on after the break, picking up an impressive 10 spoils (and 19 pressure acts in total) as he held the former Richmond Tiger to one further goal for the game.

Perhaps the pick of Glenorchy’s backs was recent convert Zac Webster, who defended like a man possessed to also finish with 19 pressure acts, including 7 tackles and 6 smothers.

Spreading the load
Up forward Aiden Grace toyed with his former team, taking 8 marks and having 9 score involvements, only his inaccurate 2.5 and three out-on-the-full preventing him from kicking a bag.

He received plenty of assistance though, Adam Roberts nailing a pair, including a brilliant snap from a forward stoppage in the final term and a classy set shot from the angle in the third.

Sam Reeves was busy all day, clunking 4 contested marks and featuring with 9 score involvements, while Liam Smith kicked two final-quarter goals to seal the deal and Kamaric also added a brace.

Daly was awarded the medal as the best player across the two Bingley-Linton Cup games, narrowly edging the ever-consistent Mott.

*Glenorchy have the bye next week before returning to KGV for their final three games of the season against the Tigers, Lauderdale and North Launceston
