The Ballarat Courier Report
Melton has taken another step closer to playing in a long awaited BFL finals series.
With Ballarat again struggling in attack, the fifth-placed Bloods eased their way to a 62-point win at Melton on Saturday.
After failing to kick a goal in their previous outing, the Swans managed only one in the first half and by the major break were effectively out of the game.
Melton coach Aaron Tymms praised the pressure of the Bloods. “It was really good.”
He said bringing Ballarat’s short game undone and forcing turnovers had been instrumental in being able to play on its terms.
Tymms was also upbeat about the efforts of his defence.
Ballarat lifted its workrate as the game wore on to increase its opportunities inside 50m, but Melton stood firm.
Melton’s VFL-listed Liam Carter injured an ankle playing for Williamstown on Saturday.
