SHANNON Beks produced his best game for the North Ballarat Rebels as they came from behind for a 20.14 (134) to 11.10 (76) win over Bendigo Pioneers on Sunday.
He booted five goals from his 14 disposals, while fellow South Warrnambool Rooster Hugh McCluggage earned his seventh best-on-ground nod from eight matches.
Rebels coach Gerard FitzGerald said Hamilton Kangaroos’ player Thomas Scott stepped up well across half-back in his debut and had high game time for a 23rd player (81 per cent).
“He showed that he’s got a good footy brain,” FitzGerald said.
Cobden utility Trent Reed was solid in his second game, collecting 22 disposals, while exciting Camperdown’s Cedric Cox was impressive on the wing in the second half.
Meanwhile, Koroit’s Jarrod Korewha and former Hawks junior Tanna Blackney-Noter were part of the St Patrick’s side that went down to St Joseph’s by just one point in the Herald Sun Shield grand final.
