Horsham Saints and Horsham United will use a break this weekend to assess vastly different issues after Wimmera Football League’s annual Anzac Day clash at Horsham City Oval.
While the Saints contemplate how well a 77-point win over the Diggers will catapult them into the season, United will search for an elusive winning formula.
The Saints blew the night match wide open after a relatively even opening half, kicking 13 goals to four after the main break.
Goal-front leader Heath Watson kicked five goals and Tom Barber four while sure-footed Nathan Clough found space, gritty on-baller Jai Pumphrey bustled his way to an Anzac Medal and defender Steve Cameron led shut-down duties in the backline.
Horsham Saints’ intensity at the ball and the failure of the Horsham United big guns to fire or draw inexperienced team-mates into the contest were telling as the game progressed.
Tim Eldridge won plenty of hard balls for the Diggers, Jae McGrath started on song in attack and rover Brodie Mines continued to impress.
The game was the only match on during the weekend and unfolded in front of a big crowd.
After this weekend’s break the Saints will play Ararat in round three while the Diggers will have an extended spell with the bye before meeting Ararat in round four.
