Bacchus Marsh may be out of finals contention, but the Cobras are determined to finish the Ballarat Football League season on a high.
After dropping their past four matches, the Cobras returned to the winners’ list with a big win against Melton South at the weekend.
The favourites stepped it up to win 23.24 (162)-6.9 (45).
Cobras coach Pete Davey said it was nice to see the playing group smiling again.
“It was nice after five weeks to get one,” he said.
“The loss against Redan after the siren took the wind out of our sails.
“It’s hard for the boys to be up when they know they won’t be in finals.”
Davey said they had gone into the game keen to exploit the fitness of their opponents and they did that well, finishing off quarters strongly.
“Playing on a big ground, we thought that was where we could get them,” he said.
“We were able to score at the back end of each quarter, as they ran out of legs.
“We didn’t expect to win by that much, but we thought it was a good chance to get a good win.”
Daniel Burton continued his good form and was named best on ground.
Brodie Easton was strong in the middle, while Jake Owen kicked four goals.
