What a concept, what a day of football. Unfortunately results did not go our way.
The day started with under 17’s Who got off to a flying start with a 5 goal to 1 first quarter. However the boys decided to have the second quarter off and Griffith pegged back the score with a 10 scoring shot quarter. Some promising signs for the boys to get with in 3 straight kicks at the final siren showing we are not that far off the top sides. Harry Bennett had a blinder while Riley Green and Jeffy Mannell produced solid 4 quarter efforts.
I could copy and paste from most second grade weeks again. A slow first quarter followed by regaining a lead followed by falling just short again. Story of the year!!!!! The signs are promising with the boys going down by 17 points against the undefeated Griffith. Damien Papworth in his 200th game produced his best game of the year. On behalf of the club Pap what a fantastic effort to reach the milestone. He was well supported by Ash Dikkenburg and our solid backline kept the boys in the game after quarter time.
A much anticipated first grade game in the twilight ensured a great crowd and the game delivered. Similar story to other weeks solid start, break the game open in the second hold a slender ¾ time lead and then go down by not a lot. The boys never gave up and fell 2 points short at the final siren. Shaun Campbell led from the front with Nic Ryan and Jake Hodge producing their best games of the year. Nathan Angel was a great contributor on debut.
Today we welcome Ganmain Grong Grong Matong to Robertson Oval. We also are holding our Ladies day. It is a great day to recognise the contribution of Woman in football. The backbone of all country football clubs.
Let’s get 3 wins sing the song and get in the clubbies for quiet ale. The best day of week!!!
