Drummoyne Power Black U11 V Glebe Greyhounds Black U11

Drummoyne Oval, Round 4, 29.4.2017

A convincing win from the boys and a real testament to Anthony’s enthusiasm and in-depth knowledge of the game as our new coach.

I noticed that the kicking accuracy had improved greatly and our boys were finding the target more often. A number of fantastic marks in a thrilling game to watch, with team Black continually turning the tables on Glebe.

Match Highlights:

  • Our forwards started strongly with some solid kicking by Luke, taking three goals
  • Ethan fired back with three goals in the last quarter
  • Jonty was on the ball constantly

  • Some great kicking and handballs from Samuel
  • As usual, Mikhail was all over the defence
  • A jaw-dropping long range kick from Russell
  • Hamish was solid in defence with some solid tackling
  • Alexander took the mark of the day
  • Rory darted and weaved his magic and was integral to a consecutive chain of possessions
  • Jackson hammered Glebe with some enthusiastic tackling

  • Solid defensive kicking from Jasper
  • Jarvyse saved a final attack on our goal with some great smothering defence


U11 Drummoyne Black vs Drummoyne White – Round 3

U11 Drummoyne Black v Drummoyne White

Moore Park, Round 3


Sunny warm day in Moore Park

Tough opposition. Good forward forays from the backline with great tackling by Toby. Good marking by all especially Hamish.


Russell very consistent today with good ball movement. Luke has a great spoil and again more great tackling by the boys with particular mention to Luke B. Toby again with some tough bursts through traffic out of the middle. Luke gets plenty of marks today.


Ongoing persistence in the forwards yields a goal for Damien. Hamish gets some great tackling done and Lucca has a great spoil. With some free running and space Samuel E gets a great two bounce goal for Black. Well done!


Great tackling in defence and using the space gives a nice open goal to Jackson. The extra space the boys are creating provides more opportunities to score. Confident mark by Samuel E in the centre. The better communication and talking by the boys provides a more free flowing game. Another goal by Jackson. Lucca just doesn’t give up – great work. Good clearances out of the backline. Best quarter of the game.

U15 Youth Girls vs Willoughby Mosman

Drummoyne Power U15 Youth Girls vs Willoughby Mosman Swans

Round 7, Middle Head Oval

This was supposed to be the weekend of the big wet but Sunday at Mosman was beautiful. The girls had just come off two very close games so were keen to attack the big guns of Mosman.

Chiara did a fantastic job of coaching her first game with the u15s and we were excited to welcome four new players to the team.

The first quarter started off positive with Afeni scoring the first goal but then things started to get a bit tougher for Drummoyne and the heat certainly wasn’t helping!

In the second and third quarters Drummoyne held their own and surprised the opposition with some big kicks from Gabi and Afeni and excellent work by Miranda in the full forwards. Nurahne and Kyza were running machines and took some fantastic leads across the field. Grace, Imogen and Lara showed true grit when surrounded by the opposition and still managed to offload the ball. Roxy and Jaydee did some strong shepherding against players that were at least twice their height.

The Mosman girls were strong and tall but the little Drummoyne team still managed to take them to the ground. The best tackle of the game was when Kyza and Afeni showed no mercy and brought the biggest Mosman player to the ground. Hazel and Geena took some fantastic marks and really helped in the centre-back.

In the final quarter Mosman pulled away and managed to score a couple of last minute goals taking the win. The u15 youth girls have shown amazing skill development over the last couple of weeks and are working together as a team.

Bring on the next game!

Under 13 Div 2 v Wests, May 14

U13 Division 2 Canada Bay Cannons v Wests

Round 6, Drummoyne Oval

It didn’t take us long to feel at home on our return to Drummoyne.
With the quickest goal in Cannons history we were well up and heading for a win when Paddy won the clearance from the opening bounce, took off and kicked long for Alex to mark and goal less than 30 seconds into the game.
Sadly, it took us three quarters to kick our next. 
In between, we battled and scrapped but were outplayed by a better team on the day.
The backline was busy and was again led by the poised and clever Ben C who hasn’t just been solid on the last line of defence all year, but creative and attacking with his smart kicks and long handballs.
Ben was supported by Will who was back to his aggressive and competitive best, taking intercept marks and tackling fiercely, while Jonno made a strong Div 2 debut.
Thea overcame a talkative start and let her courage do her talking in the second quarter when she had eyes only for the footy as she flew with the flight of the ball to take the bravest of marks with the opposition charging from the opposite direction.
Ben M was again great in the ruck and around the ground, while Tank fought hard all day.
We finally got back on the scoreboard when Paddy found Alex again early in the final quarter as the Cannons finished strongly.
While Thea provided the tough highlight of the day, Brayden and Ben M combined late in the final term for the extravagant highlight. Brayden gathered the ball on the boundary deep in the forward pocket from where his left foot bouncing banana looked like it might take the perfect bounce through the posts until Ben stormed in and volleyed it through to hit the back of the net for the goal of the day.
While once again the kids showed plenty of heart and competed for most of the day and the score probably didn’t really reflect the effort, there’s plenty room for improvement, particularly working on foot skills, defensive skills and tackling.

Under 8 Black – Round 4

U8 Black vs Western Suburbs Magpies

Round 4, Saturday 29 April 2017,

Drummoyne Oval

Alex V: You are great at defence: called you “king of smothering”. Most of the game you were very interacting with your team mates and even with your opponent team, making them playing mini games while the game was on.

Tom: You are great at passing the ball to your team mates, and keep the game moving at a good pace. You have some of the quickest feet in the team. You helped the team to kick some goals and took great marks all the way through the game.

Austen P: Excellent kicks from the centre to the forwards which led to couple of goals. You also managed to score some goals as well, and were very consistent throughout the game.

Dimitri: You are a great driver of the ball, with great kicks and passes throughout the game. Cutting through the defence and kicking in some goals was great to watch.

Evie: This was probably your best game ever—always there in the ball ups. Your running and passing of the ball with the team led to a goal in the second quarter.

Lachlan: You have good speed in your feet, especially the dance moves you do to trick you opponents, which is always fun to watch. You are good at breaking though the defence line and are very aware of your team position.

Hamish: You have great energy in your offensive skills, always attacking and putting pressure on the opponents. You also kicked some goals in the last quarter.

Arnaud: Always holding the fort, you kept your hands up to defend the ball throughout the game.

Alexander: You are an amazing allrounder, and you kept yourself in great position throughout the game to get your hands on the ball. You are always there within the reach to the ball and you are a captain of the team.

Akira: You were very focused in the game, always with an eye on the ball and you know how to get to the ball and kick the sharp angle goals. Throughout the game, because of your focus, the ball always landed in your hands. Taking the ball to right place is your key strength.

Coaches award: Lachlan

Drummoyne Power U15 Youth Girls VS Western Suburbs Magpies

Drummoyne Power U15 Youth Girls v Western Suburbs

Round 5, Sunday 7 May

A warm welcome to new player Miranda.

Birthday wishes to Afeni – we couldn’t miss it, there were balloons and Happy Birthday was enthusiastically sung in the change room after the game!

Acting coach Jeremy proclaimed this the strongest game for the U15 girls to date. The team played really well with the final score of 18 Drummoyne Power to 17 Wests Magpies reflecting a hard fought victory.

The first quarter began with the Magpies scoring two goals in quick succession, soon followed by a goal by Hazel against the wind. After that our girls really stepped up the defence and pressure, allowing the opposition to score only two more points in the remaining three quarters. Some great chest marks were taken by Nurahne, Lucinda, Hazel, Cheneale, Laura, Gaby and Afeni.

The second quarter was decisively won by Power, keeping the pressure on and not allowing the Magpies to add to their score. Consistent in their strong form our girls won the third and fourth quarters, adding five more points to the scoreboard. Laura scored a great goal with a big left kick. Nurahne showed consistent form throughout with some good runs, tackles and marks. Kyza and Lucinda both covered a lot of ground and together with Afeni were strong tacklers.

Our U15 girls seem to be hitting their stride and we look forward to them continuing to show us their form and grit.

Drummoyne Power defeated Western Suburbs Magpies 2.6.18 to 2.5.17

Go Power!

U6 v Maroubra Saints

Drummoyne Power U6 Auskick v Maroubra Saints

Round 5, Heffron Park

After an early rise, the Drummoyne Power U6 lads made their way into enemy territory and headed over to a chilly Heffron Park, home of the Maroubra Saints.

Rumour has it, the Saints coaching staff were up late friday night watching replays of our Power boys trying to figure how to stop this dominant U6 side.

The first quarter set the tone, and the strong midfield unit consisting of Oscar H, Oscar F, Harry and Isaac kept our forwards busy early littering them with plenty of ball.

When the Saints forwards got a glimpse of the ball, our powerful defensive unit of Frankie, Ned and Jeremy stopped them in their tracks every time.

Our first goal came from Oscar M (yes, there are 3 Oscars), who read the ball perfectly off the back of the pack from a forward entry and ran into an open goal. Jack, Jonah and Hunter provided consistent forward pressure and kept the goal umpire busy all quarter.

The second quarter started like the first ended with Frankie reading it perfectly out of the ruck, and kicked to Oscar H who slotted our first major for the quarter. It was raining goals in the second with Oscar F kicking three, Oscar H kicking two and Harry and Isaac also contributing. The backline of Jack, Oscar M, Jonah and Hunter were seen shivering at one stage and were a fair chance of catching a cold as our midfield of Frankie, Ned and Jeremy dominated and never gave their midfield a chance to kick it forward.

The third quarter was much of the same, and Hunter and Ned got into the action on the score card and gave the mighty Power boys a fantastic result for the morning.

The boys were awesome and everyone’s skills are improving, and it’s great to see them handballing and playing as a team.

Apologies if I missed anyone or missed a goal, still learning all the boys’ names.

See you all next week

Cannons U13 Div 2 v Kellyville, Round 5

Canada Bay Cannons U13 Div 2 v Kellyville

Round 5, 7 May 2017

It’s a long way to the Hills, that M2 just keeps going and going. Just like our Cannons – they keep going, even against the odds, they never give up.

OK, they had one bad quarter, and it was costly. Kellyville outscored us by 16 points in the third term and although we pegged them back with a gutsy last quarter, the 25-point three quarter time margin was just too big to haul in.

Especially on the biggest ground in Sydney. And with a few players down and no fresh legs on the bench, the ground almost felt as long as the M2.

The three-quarter time grapes were a big hit and when Liam converted a set shot early in the last term it looked like they could just provide the energy to spark a great comeback.

Ben M was still winning ball in the ruck and on the ground, Ben C was controlling things in defence, Nic was still running, Paddy kept putting his head over the ball and we were still in the game.

A bounce here and a bounce there could have gone either way, but Kellyville regained the momentum with a goal midway through the final term to stretch their lead back over 20 points.

But the Cannons never dropped their heads, even though they were running out of legs, and kept fighting hard to the end.

Ben C charged out of defence, linked up with Thea who found Alex who dug into his bag of tricks and curled in his second goal with the outside of his boot and we still had a sniff, but ran out of time.

Sam continues his improvement in his first year of footy, regularly starting attacks from the half back line as he stepped through and around opponents with ease, while we need to give a big thankyou to Mark from the under 12s who thought he was coming just to watch Liam play but ended up helping us out with his third game of footy for the day!

And thanks also to runner Darren and boundary ump Jeff who probably ran a half marathon each.

Poor old Jack can’t take a trick. Five games into a great comeback after a year out following  knee surgery and playing another powerful match, he fractured a bone in his arm and will be in a cast for the next 6-8 weeks. We wish him all the best and look forward to seeing him in time for the finals!

In the end, it came down to that one sleepy quarter in which we allowed too many of their men to roam free and take uncontested marks.
