Alice Howard, Lucy Teese, Alexandra Smith, Maddy Searle and Mackenzie Lewis were best for Grove while Melanie McCluskey, Emma Angel, Minnie Vorrath, Shauna Bowen and Abbey Reeves were best for the Gulls.
Both Ocean Grove Under 12 teams will learn from the experience of heavy defeats.
Grove Red lost to Torquay 10.9(59) to 1.5(11).
All of Grove’s score came in a very good second quarter.
Grove White was no match for Lara, losing 11.11(77) to 0.1(1).
