FRANKSTON had more forward entries and 10 more scoring shots, 32 to 22.

But Sandringham won the count that mattered, on the scoreboard at the final siren, in the Round 1 VFL match at Kars St on Saturday.

In an encouraging season-opening effort from the Zebras, they triumphed 17.5 (107) to 11.21 (87) in a game in which momentum swung back and forth like a pendulum.

Sandy were sluggish in the first quarter, struggling to take the ball across their half forward line, and should have trailed by more than 16 points at quarter time.
