Roos demolished by high flying Pies

A THIRTY two goal performance has seen Port Macquarie put on a 204 point drubbing of North Coffs in its AFL North Coast clash at Coffs Coast Sport and Leisure Park.

The 32-22 (220) - 2.4 (16) win from the Magpies was as one sided as a match could be with the visitors delivering one of the biggest wins in its history.

A lethargic Kangaroos outfit conceded 48 points in the first quarter alone setting the scene for what would be a tough day at the office for Mick Young's men.

Magpie's captain-coach Scott Abercrombie spoke of his team's new focus and determination to make 2013 a big season.

"The boys are really committed this year," Abercrombie said.

"We set ourselves a standard and so far we have managed to maintain that."

"We have put in an extra effort and I think it showed today."

Abercrombie praised the efforts of star player Ben Hennessey who was easily best on ground for the Magpies.

"Ben is a class act and he excelled out there today," he said.

"We are happy to have him our side because he is a quality player who can turn a match."

A number of absentees made it difficult for North Coffs with a handful of players forced to back up following the reserve grade and Under-18 games.

It won't get any easier for the Roos as they next week take on Sawtell at Richardson Park.
