After 6 straight losses the Northern Bullants are back on the winners list after an upset win over Box Hill at Cramer St. Led by midfielders Daniel Harford and Adam Bentick the Bullants were the hardest at the ball they've been for a long time, which was a major factor in the win. The Bullants led by 57 points mid way through the 3rd term but a late Box Hill surge reduced the winning margin to 20 points. However the Bullants were never seriously threatened after the 1st term. Although lacking the height of Box Hill, the Bullants were given first use of the ball by it's string of middle sized players who ran Box Hill off their legs. Carlton rookie Andrew Carrazzo played his best game for the year as did Kade Simpson who played further up the ground than in previous games. Up forward Setanta O'Hailpan continued his good form of 2 weeks ago, bagging 4 goals, which even included a drop kick goal. Adam Jordan also showed promise in his first game until a knee injury saw him leave the ground in the 3rd quarter. Anthony Franchina also spent the 2nd half off the ground after appearing to injure his wrist/hand. Down back Luke Stevenson was outstanding playing on experienced players such as Ben Dixon and Mark Williams. Murray Boyd showed more dash than in previous weeks, he finished the game with 1.1 from defence. The fadeout which saw Box Hill kick 10 out of the last 13 goals of the game may have taken a little gloss off the win. But when you've won just 3 out of the last 16 any win will do.
