Round 3 Preview: Toronto Dingos v Broadview Hawks
The Hawks are 1-1 for the season having won their opener against the Demons (16.16-112 to 7.5-47) but lost to the Toronto Rebels in round two action (5.1-31 to 11.7-73). Here's what the AFL Ontario match report had to say about that encounter:
The Rebels have handed the Hawks a 42-pt loss at Humber South on Saturday. The Hawks went into quarter time with a slim one-goal lead, but that was soon eroded as the Rebels piled on 4.2 to 1.0 in the second quarter. The Hawks were still in it at three-quarter time trailing by 22-points, but another 4.2 to 1.0 sealed the win for the Rebels. The Hawks’ Twin Towers in Dullard and Shuttleworth were kept in check, but small forward Nathan Cragg stepped up with three majors. Hawks pair Luke Bell and Scott Emberley got plenty of it. For the Rebels, Robert Tersigni booted 3 goals and Kevin Duffy 2, while Josh Hegarty stood firm across halfback.
The Hawks will no doubt be looking to bounce back this week, and the Dingos will not be taking anything for granted as they look to further establish themselves early in the season. Should be a cracking game to round out Saturday's AFL Ontario Round 3 action.
