The opening RPP FM Match of the Day for the 2014 MPNFL season proudly brought to you by Mornington & Rosebud Telstra Shop was played at Glover Reserve, home of the Devon Meadows Panthers who beat Pearcedale by 10 points.
The mighty Dales weren’t so mighty as they gave away a close scoring game only kicking 1 goal in the final quarter to go down to the Panthers 10, 9, 69 to 12, 7, 79 on the O’Brien Real Estate, Cranbourne Scoreboard.
Footy commentators Dave Quinlan and ‘Vossy’ presented the action live to air that had punters on the edge of their seats with close scoring in the fourth quarter.
In the third quarter, Pearcedale started to show their class but couldn’t hang on to the top score. The game was fast on a healthy green grassed ground.
Steven McInnes of Devon Meadows won most votes to take out Best on Ground awarded by Splendor Kitchens, Keysborough.
Devon Meadows play Tyabb next week while Pearcedale battle it out with Frankston in the Nepean Football League.
