Match Report:
Unfortunately we weren’t able to match the perfect conditions for footy and despite a solid first quarter which included a great running goal from Sean Downes, we turned in a disappointing performance thereafter. Poor skill execution was the enemy of any momentum that we tried to build throughout the afternoon and in the end, an 8 point loss masked a bigger gap between us and Epping who certainly came to play. On the positives, Tom Cowey and Nick Biscontin defended the key posts admirably and were never beaten one-on-one while Jacob Smith continued his recent run of good form. Devin McDonald tried his guts out in the middle along with Riley Keath while Matt Yarwood, Sean Downes and Scott Gumbleton battled hard all day. For the second week in a row, Jimmy Clark sacrificed his own game and did a great shut down job in the second half. In all, we learned plenty from the hit-out and look forward to rectifying a few things over the coming weeks.

Match Report:
This was a perfect day for football in a top 4 clash which was another important game for us epping is one of the teams we need to beat if we are a chance of playing finals. Again we started of slow even though we had 70% of the ball we just couldn't get any goals on the board. With some changes at quarter time we looked a lot better the fact that we started to run and switch the footy opened up the game , even though we were still struggling to hit targets the game opened up with the faster ball movement to go into the half 2pts down. The 3rd quarter we started to take control with the two rucks langers and coulson starting to take control and giving our on ballers first use out of the centre it was a strong effort and went in 8pts up. The last quarter we looked like we would run away with it getting out to a 20 pt lead half way through but we started to take the foot of and let epping back in to hold on by 6pts we need to run the game out and put away these side , one thing we can improve on is our kicking at goals kicking 15 pts is not good enough.
