Speaking after last weekend’s game, Power coach Leigh Brown said it was a “really good win” for the club.
“Fantastic to be on the right side of a close game for once; I think we’ve had three three point losses and a one point loss,” Mr Brown said in a media release.
“Overall it was a great team effort, and it shows in those tight games.
“We had tough conditions. In strong wind we need a 23-man performance and unfortunately we lost Matt McGannon early but we covered him.”
Mr Brown said the performance of several newcomers, Caleb Serong (Warragul), Sam Flanders, and Brock Smith (Moe), “shows a good future for the club.”
Dandenong Stingrays: 2.1 8.4 10.6 14.8 (92)
Gippsland Power: 2.7 5.9 11.10 14.10 (94)
