Cannons U12-3, Round 7

U12 Div 3 v Westbrook

Round 7, 22 May 2016, Drummoyne Oval

It was evident at the pre-game spiel that Div 3 was in for a big day on the paddock. The game plan was to win the ball through tackling, going in hard and being first to the ball.

From the first bounce the signs were promising. The engine room made up of Tank, Whitey, Dominator, Alex, Jezza, Brayden, Frizzy, Ozzy, and Gab ran hard all day and kept the opposition thinking twice when attempting to get the ball with some solid tackles being applied across the park.

The backline held steady and kept our opposition scoreless for almost the first half with some determination shown by Jack, Ben, Luke, Max, and Declan.

Our forwards led well resulting in some impressive pack marks and our key target Charlie M, capitalising on every opportunity.

Also some excellent work from a very talented flashy forward in Hugh, snapping one of the best goals of his career from the sideline. Josh L also played the best game of his career, his work rate and intensity around the ball was the best I have seen.

All in all, some very positive signs of improvement across the playing group.
