Frankston YCW has proven itself the true king of Peninsula football with a resounding 63-point victory over Sorrento at Frankston Park.

The highly-anticipated Easter Sunday showdown was basically over at quarter time after the Stonecats unleashed a 7.4 to 0.1 first term on their way to a 18.10.118 to 7.13.55 triumph.

Stonecats’ midfielder Kyle Hutchison (pictured) was awarded the Andrew ‘Toe Punt’ Kelly Medal for best on ground after dominating at the stoppages.

Hutchison was given an arm-chair ride by champion ruckman Ash Eames, while Ryan Santon, Jake Lovett and Paul Minchington were dangerous four-quarter performers.

Star defender Christian Ongarello had a great battle with Sorrento dangerman Chris Dawes, who had his chances but was wildly inaccurate in front of the big sticks.

Stonecats’ coach Wayne Capp was delighted with the performance.

“I couldn’t be more pleased with our efforts today, the players did everything that I asked,” he said.

“We can’t dwell on what we’ve done in the past. We have to look to the future and be at our best every week in this new competition.”

Zach Byrns had a great start for the Sharks, while James Brigden and Nick Marston did well to stem a steady stream of supply in defence.

Other winners in round one included Mt Eliza over Frankston Bombers, Edi-Asp over Bonbeach, Seaford against Pines and Rosebud who scored a 10-point victory over Mornington.
