JACK'S BACK: Wodonga Raiders' Jack Di Mizio's move back into defence proved crucial as the home team blasted Wangaratta Rovers.

Wodonga Raiders have overcome a slack first half to hammer Wangaratta Rovers by 98 points.

The home side led by only four points, but then blasted 16 goals to one in the 20.9 (129) to 4.7 (31) win.

“We were pretty flat, I think coming off the break we just didn’t come ready to play,” coach Daryn Cresswell said.

“But we made a few changes and to the players credit, they were pretty clinical in the second half.”

Steve Jolliffe tagged Sam Carpenter, Jack Di Mizio moved back to defence and Jydon Neagle pushed forward to kick eight goals.

He’s now kicked 18 in the past two games to catapult into third on the goalkickers’ list with 21.
