Glenorchy 12.8.80 defeated North Launceston 8.12.60
In a huge turnaround, the RSEA Magpies youngters bounced back from a 50-point defeat by the third-placed Bombers in Round 7 to claim their fourth win from the past five games.
The win moves the Magpies equal with the Bombers on points, and three games clear inside the top four, a sensational turnaround after going winless last season.
The win was set up by a stunning first quarter where Bayley Bester (4 goals) and Matthew Joseph (6 goals) capitalised on their team's midfield dominance to set up a 19-point lead at the first change.
While the Bombers would charge in the second term, the baby Pies owned the second half to lock in a memorable win.
Teenagers Jude Saavedra (2 goals), Josh Meredith and Bailey Jenkins all starred, while the more experienced Bester, Joseph and Braydon Patterson were also standouts in a quality team performance.
