An impressive final term from Caulfield saw them string together back to back wins, the Bears holding off a plucky East Brighton in a see-sawing match at Hurlingham Reserve. It was a scrappy and dour first half with the Bears taking a 17 point lead at half time despite just three goals next to their name. However, the game came to life in the third thanks to some brilliant footy from the Vampires, the home side slotting five goals to three to come storming back into the contest. With scores level at the final break it was anyone’s game but it was the Bears who rose to the occasion in the last, kicking two crucial goals to register a gutsy win, 8.11-59 to 6.9-45. Ryan Farmer did the damage in the forward 50 with three goals and Tom Stait was key to the visitors getting over the line. It’s the Vampires second loss in a row after a bright start but Clinton Johnston’s form in front of goal continues to impress and Dan Taberner made it two good games in a row with another solid effort here.
