We took on a vastly improved West Heidelberg teem and struggled to get any run in a first quarter where a combination of quality attacking football by the Hawks and us making poor decisions going inside 50 restricted us from hitting the scoreboard. Fortunately we are able to regroup at quarter time and from then on, despite some average kicking at goal, work our way back into and run away with the game. Once again James Kroussoratis was a focal point up forward finishing with six goals and assisting in several others whilst for the most part, battling two opponents. Down back, best on ground Jacob Smith and Nick Biscontin, who was returning after a two game absence with injury, were both outstanding. As always Devon McDonald, Dan Kelly and Kieran Malone did the strong work around the stoppages while Scott Gumbleton played a great captain’s game covering a lot of km’s around the ground. We now look forward to a week off before a return bout away with Epping.
