Magpies reserves get the job done

Central made the perfect start to their ANZAC Day as their reserves team proved too strong for West and recorded a 32-point win.
The Magpies started well with a four-goal to one opening term but West fought back after quarter-time to get within 11 points at the main break.
The Robins had the best of it in the third term but mistakes continued to hurt both sides. In the end it was Central who pulled away as West ran out of legs in the last quarter.
Central were well served by young gun Jordan Cox, who then backed up for League, with his speed and dare able to break lines and push Central into attack.
Rebel Dean was fantastic down back with his attack on the ball - and sometimes the man - while Andrew Killeen, Louis Hann and Jake Picton were also in the best for the Magpies.
Veteran’s Simon Matten and Leighton Raven were best for the Robins while Rielly Hunter showed that he’s got what it takes to play some good senior football this season.
West take on North on May 5 in round two at the Jubilee Oval while Central will take on South at the Memorial.
CENTRAL 10.9 (69)
WEST 5.7 (37)
Central- J. Cox, R. Dean, A. Killeen,
L. Hann, J. Picton, J. Gilby
West- S. Matten, L. Raven, R. Hunter,
A. Garry, B. Vincent, B. King
