One round is done and dusted and last week we were up against the well drilled and huge outfit of the Leeton Crows in the seniors. Another ripper of a game on paper, but not the result the CROWS were after. A MASSIVE win in the seniors.
The day started with a bit of frost in the Under 17’s and the end of the game finished a bit frosty as well, all locked up at 62 apiece. The CROWS kicked truly they might have the honours, but a ripper game to kick of the day. Frase Yates and Ash Bennet were instrumental all day. Mascini showed talent, Mitch Wadley continued his stellar form, overall the boys battled hard against a quality side.
The twos saw the majestic, athletic genuine clubman play his 200th Game – Brent – “ Crawf “ Crawford donned the black and gold and had a blinder while he was at it ., Ben Farrell back from a dodgy groin area played a cracker. Corey Lucas had it on a string most times, whilst Lardy ( Josh ) would have polled another digit or two with a solid , yes solid, four quarter performance. Sammy Schirmer’ must be close over all a team effort to get a 40 point win.
The seniors as eluded too earlier had a big game ahead, a few mid-season Injuries have changed the side a bit, but to Stumps credit, he had the boys primed for a big one, and they didn’t fail to deliver 40 point plus winners and never looked in doubt. Brendy eyes was BOG in his first game in the seniors this year, the man grabbed anything that came near him, on and off the field! Jackpot Kelly turned the burners on when he needed too, Shaun Campbell was his hard at as usual with the back six headed by Dale Walker and Dylan Morton getting the job done. Jesse Manton slotted straight back in with some clever ball gets and showed poise
This week out to the cross roads, always a tough gig, but one the Tigers will rise to the challenge for.
The start of round two saw some mixed results for our netballers, starting the day in 2 degrees, the Under 17’s kicked off with a dominant win over Leeton. An all team effort allowed the girls to win 42-11. Unfortunately, Leeton put a stop to C grades run of wins, simply outplaying the girls losing by 8 goals. B grade were played well but were pipped at the post with the whistle blowing only seconds before a goal opportunity to even the game was taken. Reserve grade were lucky to get away with a win of only two goals. Some great defence by Grace Cornell and Bree Cain combined with Maddi Kelly in the middle played an important role in the win. A grade combined well with some quick passing and great attacking by Josie Daniher combining well with Lana Duffy in the circle. A grade came home strong winning 62-56. A special congratulations to Jess Wakefield on receiving her C badge last weekend.
