Beaumaris led by a point at the half, but trailed by the same margin when the final siren blew at Banksia Park today. Despite conceding 3.3 without reply in the final term, the Red and Blacks hung on for their eleventh win, against a team that might play finals too.
The pint-sized speedster Tyler Scarce was in everything and has hit a rich vein of form of late.
