U10 Teal match report round 2

Under 10 Teal v Concord GMan: Round 2

Drummoyne Oval

The sun was shining and Drummoyne Oval was in fantastic condition after all the rain during the week. Both teams played hard but fair in really good spirit.

The Power played really well with solid defence, good pressure tackling from Jack and big clearing kicks from Ethan. Great good run out of the middle from Jackson and Zac and big Ben up forward with very safe hands scoring well supported by Dallas who kicked a nice goal.  Solid team work from all with lots of quick hand passes as requested by coach. After a strong start from Drummoyne, the GMan built momentum scoring some goals in quick succession and putting the Power under some pressure. Drummoyne responded with strong defence and late goal from both Torbia and Ben and solid work in the forward line by William.

Well done to all of the Drummoyne U10 Teal. A great team effort!


Outstanding Players/Special Mentions

Big Josh starred in his second only AFL game kicking 4 goals and 3 behinds using his height and safe hands really well up forward.

U9 Teal & Silver: Round 2 Match Report

 U9 Teal v U9 Silver: Round 2

ANZAC Day, Taplin Oval

WP_20150425_15_30_29_Pro[1]  WP_20150425_15_28_09_Pro__highres[1]WP_20150425_15_27_51_Pro__highres[1]

With a twinkle in his eye, Brad lined up our 10 feisty footballers against a full Silver team at Taplin oval on Saturday. Against the odds, in the true spirit of the ANZACS, the boys rose to the challenge.  What followed was a very entertaining, fast flowing game with good skills on display from both teams.

The first quarter was frantic, with the first play resulting in a goal by James (possibly some form of club record I imagine!). Luke V and Max worked hard in the centres keeping Silver on the defensive. Every ball was contested; all boys were involved in the flowing play. A flying grab by Joseph didn’t quite pay off, but looked sensational.

The storm clouds began to gather at the start of the second quarter. This was a hard period marked with plenty of scrapping in front of goals at both ends. Lucas, Alex and Nick worked tirelessly to clear the ball from our goal, solid tackling and good football from all. We took it to Silver in the later part but several of our snaps at goal were rushed, resulting in minor scores – something to improve on for Wednesday.

As the lightning approached, Silver were impatient, answering with two quick goals to open the quarter. Teal regrouped in a dazzling display of skills. Oliver broke tackles like a pro, Luke V’s shepherd was textbook stuff. As our players found gaps, they opened up the play, and things began to happen. Max set up Hugo for a fantastic goal from half way. Great goals to Jonty and Nick followed.

With one eye on the sky, both teams went hard into the fourth quarter. There were more ball ups in this quarter than any before, a sign of the fierce struggle during this man-on-man defensive term. When we had the ball, there were arms in the air and boys calling for it and making space everywhere. All boys had numerous touches as the ball went from end to end.  At the final siren it was Teal’s day, with just enough time to congratulate the boys before the heavens opened. Well done Teal.


A special note to say thanks to Pat Colreavy (Silver manager) who was referee and well done to Sam Mehr in his first game as Coach for Silver.

Under 7 Black: Round 2 Match Report

U7 Black v Concord Giants: Round 2, April 25, 2015

Taplin Oval, Drummoyne

Coach’s Award:  Ben G.

After a week of RAIN, RAIN and more RAIN… The sun was out and shining bright. The oval had drained well and it was a perfect afternoon for footy. After many spent the morning remembering our ANZACs, our kick off was at 1pm. The afternoon start didn’t seem to upset the boys with desperation to get out on the field at an all time high. 

Special Mention

To start a special mention to Ben G., who volunteered to help out the Giants with numbers and played for them in the game. Despite playing for the opposition, Ben played out of his skin and was clearly one of the best players on the field for both teams on the day. After consultation, it was decided that Ben deserved the Coach’s award for the match.

The Match

The match started with great enthusiasm from both teams. Oscar had some great marks early, always working hard in the centre and then strong in defence in the final third. Henry worked hard all game always chasing the ball, solid in defence in the first third and got a great goal in the final third. Daniel as always running, great early touches and solid shots on goal. Took the mark of the game late after returning from a head clash that had required attention on the sideline.

Riley managed to take the opportunity for the first shot on goal during the game, though it narrowly drifted past the post. Great combinations with Henry, Zac and Daniel, combining with a string of kicks and passes commenced multiple attacking opportunities for their team. Peter got most of his opportunity on  the ball in the final third when he stopped multiple raises on goal from the giants on many occasions he was marking and knocking down certain goals. Callum was a total team player as always, he was always looking up and finding team mates in space. He was strong in defence where much of the action was required in this game.

Zachary was always running and defending tirelessly, arms held high and in the face of the attacking Giants players. He managed to stop many goal attempts with his superb defence. Brody started with some great marks, and progressing the ball into attacking positions. He had many goal assists late in the game by getting the ball to Finn. Finn finished the game with two great long goals, and at multiple smothers early in the first third to prevent the giants from scoring.

Concord where very strong particularly in attack, with many long bombs into the goal third. Power defence was sound. With great teamwork, looking for the man in space, while always contesting the ball on the ground resulting in a great game not only for the boys but also for the spectators.


Thanks to Paul Gallo for filling in as coach for the weekend.

Under 6 Teal: Round One Match Report April 18

Under 6 Teal v Glebe Greyhounds: Round 1

Five Dock Park

After a night of rain, Five Dock Park was in perfect condition for footy.

Special Mention

Charles from Glebe helped us out by evening out the numbers, even though he was playing against his own team he was constantly attacking and defending at the highest level.

Match Report

Starting with a great exchange of kicks through the middle , tough defence at the back from Freddie, Flynn and Rorey working hard the clear out of the back line. Rorey kicks to Zac to start a charge down field. Zac clears to the forward line. Jake working hard in the centre. A lot of attack from Glebe but strong defence from Freddie, Flynn and Rorey kept them out.

Fergus shot on goal and great kicks out of defence from Jake. Cohen strong kicking and clearing down field. Cohen great return after a strong defensive effort that put his body on the line.  Deep into the second third and Glebe scored the first goal of the game. Rorey kicks to Freddie and into Zac good charge forward. Cohen nice clearing kicks out of the back line with arms always high in defence.

Jake and Zac combine which lead to a great goal by Zac for Drummoyne! Freddie strong mark kicks to Rorey.

Defence at the back still holds with repeated Glebe attack. Flynn goal, assist from Freddie with a nice hand ball. Followed up by another great goal. Another strong kick from Freddie just slipped past the post, Rorey long run and finishes with a goal.

Full time siren sounds great game!


All players great effort to start the season. Keep up the good work boys!

Outstanding Players

Freddie played hard and fair in all thirds.

U10 Blacks: Round 2 Match Report

Drummoyne Power U10 Black v Concord Giants

After much doubt over whether this game would go ahead or not it turns out we squeezed this week’s game in between grounds being closed.

With Charlie as captain for the week, the team looked a little jaded in the early phases of the game with the Giants shrugging off the Power’s usually strong tackling and dominating the first quarter, leaving the Power scoreless despite the efforts of Ethan and Zac.

The second quarter saw Drummoyne start to get into the game a bit more with a goal from Zac and a behind from Max.  The defence and midfield also started to gel a bit more with Nick and Kevin getting more into the game and good build up place from Phoenix and great tackling from Cooper and Ethan.

The third quarter saw Drummoyne start to build more pressure, Ashwin, James and Liam all started to make their presence felt and Sebastian’s arrival added more movement to midfield.  All this work paid dividends with two goals from Zac and Dallas and behinds for Fraser and Max.

A bit like the Swans, the Power came home with a wet sail, Summer and James showed great intensity and Dallas tackled like a man possessed.  Max added another goal and Cooper was unlucky with a behind.

MVP- 1. Zac, 2. Max, 3. Charlie, 4. Dallas, 5.  Nick

Well done team!

U8 White: Round Two Match Report

U8 White vs Glebe Greyhounds: Round Two

Drummoyne Oval

The U8 White team saw the return of their coach Stephen Dunne and together with Sam Winter the super coaches looked to prepare the eager and highly charged U8 White team to new heights.

The U8 White team did an outstanding job representing the Drummoyne Power in front of an almost capacity crowd at Drummoyne Oval.  Harry set the scene for the afternoon dominating all those around him to lift the spirits of the Power U8 white team.  Will was, as usual, hard at the ball and Lucas again was accurate with his kicks and always looking for the quick handball.  Ethan made his debut for the year and made an immediate impact picking up several kicks throughout the game, whilst Zac proved adept in the forward line quietly picking up kicks and showing skill in the quick handball to team mates.  Max and Jesse combined well in the back and forward line and were never too far away from the ball in what was an enthusiastic display of footy.

The game was a hotly contested battle played with great sportsmanship.  The Greyhounds were true to the spirit of the ANZAC on this special day by being competitive but also demonstrating mateship by rotating a team member to the Power U8 White’s each quarter.


A special thank you to Stephen and Sam as well as all the parents who supported and contributed on the day.

U6 Black: Round 2 Match Report

U6 Black v Concord Giants: Round Two

Location:  A mildly soggy Taplin Park

A lovely sunny day after a week of rain, floods and storms – and the players certainly rose to the occasion.  It was great to have our first home game of the season, against a lovely opposition team, in the Concord Giants.

Thomas got the team off to a great start with the 1st Goal, and continued to demonstrate good defence and kicking skills, ultimately taking out the Coach’s Award for R2. Oscar again showed great kicking and passing skills, (coached by older brothers perhaps?) scoring some great points/goals along the way.  Alexander displayed great team work, and agility around the field.  Evie again took a great mark, despite some distractions with her teeth, and her kicks were well placed.  The kicking drills are starting to come true, with Edward showing how it can be done.  Charlie’s hand balls were strong and well timed.  Akira was everywhere, good defence and kicking, bringing more goals and points to our tally (if there was a tally), ultimately taking out the “Future AFL Star” award for the week.

Austin and Ted showed off their great sportsmanship playing strongly on the Giants team to even up numbers.  Austin’s passing skills were admirable, and Ted played a good defensive team against his friends in Power, though a bit of team identity confusion evident in his hand balls to Power players.


Over all, some great team work, and you can really see the team coming together!


Thanks to Nat (Austin’s Mum) for doing this week’s Match Report.

Laura goals under pressure

Laura (U10 Silver) Club MVP: Round Two

The Sydney Swans are holding a weekly Club MVP competition, asking each junior Club to nominate a weekly MVP for our Club. The MVP could be a player, an official or volunteer around the grounds. If our entry is selected, the nominee wins four tickets to a Swans game.

Our nominee for Round Two is Laura from U10 Silver. Laura made her AFL debut last year, so this is her second season playing AFL with Drummoyne Power.

Laura LOVES her footy. She is a die-hard Swans supporter and constantly has a football in her hands, practising drills that Coach Tim sets for the team each week.

After a quiet game in Round One, Laura hit her stride in Round Two, scoring two goals in the first quarter and being in the thick of the action for the whole game. What a confidence boost! She received the Coach’s Team Player of the Week award for her efforts.

Coach Tim says Laura “posesses, and indeed this week kicked her running goals off, a booming ‘Buddy-like’ left boot”.

“Laura very regularly contributes this strongly... Laura is also a coach’s dream in terms of her approach to learning the game and developing her skills,” he said.

As well as playing for U10 Silver this year, Laura has been invited to play in our Youth Girls U14 competition and she’s said she’s willing to give it a go. If this weekend’s form is anything to go by, she’ll be amazing!

Congratulations, Laura, you’re our Club MVP nomination for Round Two.

U8 Teal Match Report – Round 2

U8 Teal v Concord Giants: Round Two

Taplin Oval, Drummoyne

A hot day on a damp field made for sweaty U8 boys.

Concord was a great opposition and it was an evenly matched game.

Drummoyne Teal has grown and improved so much since last year. Their kicking and catching skills are stronger and it’s great to see so many keen for the ball.

Ethan, Tom C, Harry and Lucas in Mids kicking to Nicolas, Tom N, Declan and Sean in Forwards and Scott, Alexander, and Zai defending in Backs was a great combination to start the game off. Lucas was very brave coming back on to play after stopping a goal with a ball in the face in the 3rd.

Outstanding Players/Special Mentions

Zai gets the Coach’s award this week for his great run out of defence then handballing to midfield plus two great goals.

Listening intently to our coach at break.
