With only 2 rounds to go against some quality opposition in the seniors, the sun was drenching Robbo on Saturday afternoon and the footy didn’t disappoint either.
The Under 17’s had a massive win!! 100 point plus with nearly 40 scoring shos, literally had a day out against the Lions. With winners dead set all over the paddock, finding 6 best was hard, Jenko slammed home 6 snags Young Mascini was brilliant at the hard stuff, Ash as good, all round team effort. Top 6 were. Jenkins, J. Staines, A. Bennett, J. Mascini, B. Schirmer, S. McGowan
Now the reserves on paper looked near un-backable, but some late changes to the senior’s side, and some lessons learned coming into finals regarding a 4 quarter effort. Never in danger in the first half with Rob Tuohey back from injury kicking 6 out of the side 8 goals. The second half the tap was well and truly turned off!! Not the footy coaches Papworth and Crawford would be looking for, will be good to get these things ironed out before the big month ahead. Only going down by a few points in the end though with notable ball winners in no order Sammy Schirmer who must be polling well in the B & F , Carter Lovell senior experience shows , Nath Angel starting to get some run in the legs, and C. Lucas, Josh Larwood and , Rob Tuohey where the others to hold their own.
The seniors were up against a side that HAD to win to be any chance of go deeper into September. With only 2 points in it at half time the lads piled on 12 goals and ELEVEN points in the second half to run out comfortable winners. Some late changes with Nathan Cooke debuting for his first run at the 2.10pm time slot this year, and didn’t look out of place either. Nicko Ryan got the choccies with a workmanlike like performance, (a man possessed when chasing). Jesse Manton was all class and contested the footy at every opportunity given. Dale Walker (c) was brilliant with his leadership. Jack Kelly could have been anything if he kicked straight, Lachie Meyers was sound, and brother Brendy is giving goal kicking lessons this week! – couldn’t split the rest.
This week we continue to March to the first week of finals against a very very good side in Griffith. Some big names players who I’m sure will be up and about this time of year.
See you all back at the clubrooms for the reverse draw at 6.30 pm for a ripper night
Starting to feel like finals are around the corner with a gorgeous sunny day. A clean sweep in all grades sees the girl’s preparation leading up to finals in a good place. C grade kicked the day off with a convincing win 34-6 with Margie Eldershaw playing her heart out for the entire game. This was followed by B grade winning 36-16 in another easy win. Ellen Briggs getting players player which was well earnt. With a couple of shooters away in Reserve grade they did well to win 62-20. With Maddi Kelly making ground at will in the middle and Ally Bedford and Grace Cornell forming good combinations at either end. This was followed by another win of 60 goals for A grade. All players performed well despite simply outclassing Ganmain in every position. All teams have been working hard at training allowing for them to develop and putting themselves in a good position as we face Griffith before finals
