Match Report:
Eight changes opened up the opportunity for a number of our younger players to show their wares in the senior side and after a solid effort in the first against the wind, we took over in the second and set up victory with a 10 goal to 1 quarter. Mikey Edwards and James Kroussoratis were outstanding up forward combing for 10 whilst Kieran Malone, Jacob Smith and James Allery tallied 30 possession games. Mick Italia, skippering for the day, was also outstanding in the middle. Most pleasingly was the form of Arti Cabdi who was best afield and provided great run off Half Back. We look forward to our first venture out to Laurimar.

Match Report:
Last week we traveled to mernda in another game played in shocking conditions, in a game were there wasn't much at stake but we needed to get through with out any more injuries. Kicking into the wind it was very tuff conditions with the main idea was to keep position of the ball and work it up in the wind and the boys did well kicking 3 goals to 1 to start the game well. The second quarter with the run and switch started to open up the game and we looked a lot better than last week with lowering our eyes and hitting targets instead of blazing away. The 3rd was good hard working football to keep them to only 1 goal and kicking 4 ourselves against the wind with del and kicks getting plenty of the ball and barcas starting to take control of the game it was good to see them work the ball into the wind with plenty of confordance. With the wind in the last and the result done and dusted and only 1 on the bench we just needed to get through the game , we ran the last out kicking 4 goals to nothing we ran out 20 goal winners.
