Glenelg v Sturt, Unley Oval, May 26, 2018

10 goals to nothing over quarters 2 and 3.  No-one wins many games going to sleep for 50% of the game.

Glenelg 8.9 (57)  Sturt 15.11 (101)

[PS. Vale Keith Pattinson, a great rover for the Bays from 1965 to 1971. 91 games, 109 goals, including a glorious outing against North in 1969, when he kicked 8 goals!  As Peter Cornwall, in Pride of the Bay, noted: “Pattinson had been a reserve for the league side 11 times the previous year, but hard work to find an extra yard of pace and bulk up had instead pushed the elusive rover to State selection.”

The GFC website had this to say:

A chunky, energetic rover, Keith picked up plenty of possessions and used the ball intelligently. He made his one State appearance for South Australia at the 1969 Adelaide Carnival. As a rover, he finished his career with 109 goals for the club and went on to play senior football for Nightcliff in the NTFL, captaining the side in 1972-73.  Keith passed away unexpectedly whilst with his Daughter on the Gold Coast on Monday morning. Our thoughts and sympathies are extended to Keith’s family at this time.”

Farewell Keith.]
