Round 11 – Drummoyne U11 Black vs Glebe Greyounds

Oh where art thou Daceyville?

The families of Under 11 Black have traversed all continents of the globe, trekked and travelled countries, explored cities and discovered regions that are both populated and remote. None, however, have ever been to Daceyville. Daceyville, the home of Australia’s first planned cul-de-sac, is only seven kilometres from Sydney’s CBD, in the middle of everything yet not near anywhere.  It seemed a long way to travel for a local derby against our old rivals, the Glebe Greyhounds.

The travel to Daceyville was well worth it though as our boys shifted their game play up a gear. The free flowing, open play allowed the Power to dominate early. Brilliant open runs from Damien, Lucca, Jarvyse put the Greyhounds under immediate pressure. The defence pack of Hamish, Ethan, Russell, Alex P, Mikhail and Jasper was made of solid rock and impenetrable.

Thank you to our special guest player Yoshi who stepped up to play again after finishing up from the U10s. Yoshi’s efforts ensured a smooth flow of play and absolutely no gaps in the outfield.

The crisp air cracked with the ‘boom-boom-boom’ of the ball off the boots of Cooper, Luc, Ethan and Jarvyse making it rain on a fine sunny day. Alex P, Russell, Lucca all popped the ball between the posts. Alex H’s brilliant contribution via the rucks had the ball flying Power’s way and when he applied his rugby style defence skills the opposition did not stand a chance.

Full credit to the Greyhounds, they did not give up. They dug deep and when it looked like they might score, Damian was right there on the line to thwart the attempt. Power’s brilliant defence never let its guard down.

“Mercy” was called but not by the Greyhounds! It was by our boys in the backs who had so little to do.  Full props to Ethan who played for Greyhounds in the last quarter and was immediately on the receiving end of the Power’s crushing defence. You did both teams proud Ethan, thank you.

U11 Teal v Maroubra, Round 14

U11 Teal had a day out against Maroubra for its Round 14 match at Heffron Park, Maroubra. The team showed why it is top of the table and a contender for the upcoming finals.  It was a fine day without any wind, which is unusual for Maroubra.  Most games here have a gale favouring one end, but not this day!

The first quarter saw Teal kick five goals and register a four goal lead. The forwards were working well together.  Joseph led the centres with strong ruck work. Oscar was terrific showing strong attack on the ball.  Xabi was solid in defence.  Milo used his speed and courage to get his hands on the ball.

In the second quarter Teal extended its lead with a six goal term.  Zachary was playing well kicking six goals by half time. Xabi kicked a huge long range goal – it was good to see him at the front half of the ground.  Harry was proving elusive as always and his precision passing was a highlight.  Hugo was a ‘wall’, showing why he is one of the best defenders in the league.

The third quarter saw the scoring slow a little as Brad experimented with the team to give the backline a go. Jules was a dynamo and involved in everything, while Lucas B was very solid, stopping the ball from getting past him and driving the ball forward.  Oscar finished with a great goal – nice to see given he does not get the opportunity often.

While the equalisation rule was enforced, the floodgates opened in the last quarter.  Nic kicked a great snap, which was good reward for a great game. Oliver kicked a fine goal – his first for the season, which was roundly celebrated. Luke kicked a rather fancy goal on the outside of his boot.  The crowd cheered and asked “Where’s his left foot?”  It was good to have him back after a week off. Lucas’ attack on the ball was notable. James put in a solid performance all day and Sean was consistent in his efforts.

It was a confidence boosting outing.  Next week will be a truer test as we take on second placed Glebe, who beat us last time.  Go Drummoyne!

Goals: Zachary 8, Nicholas 3, Harry 2, Luke H 2, Oscar 1, Oliver 1, Xabi 1, 2 unaccounted for.

Thank you to all volunteers for your efforts (week in and week out).

 

 

U11 Teal v Glebe Greyhounds: Round 10

Under 11-1 Drummoyne Teal vs Glebe Greyhounds

Round 10

Grey clouds threatened at Jubilee Oval as the boys took to the field against the Glebe Greyhounds. Glebe had recently beaten Teals arch rivals East’s so the boys knew they were in for a tough match.

Teal started well and were all over Glebe in the opening moments of the game. Harry got away with a clear run to score the first goal, five minutes into the game. Then Glebe switched on and came back strong scoring the next three goals. Teal were scuttled and lost momentum. Oscar got a shot away towards the end of the quarter for a well deserved goal. Glebe was ahead by 3-1  at the break.

Great teamwork saw Harry score another two goals in the second quarter but Glebe had all the answers as they responded with another two goals and one behind. Zachary tried hard to close the gap with a behind but Teal still went to the half time break trailing by 3-1. Coach Brad did his best to boost the boys’ spirits with a motivational half time talk. Team Captain, Joseph, told it like it was at the break also, wanting the boys to “run harder at the ball and get it”.

An even third quarter saw both teams score three goals keeping the scoreboard status quo. Fantastic play saw Hugo pass to Harry who got the ball to Zachary for a goal. Julian and Milo were the other goal scorers for Teal this quarter.

Again the last quarter saw both teams score only one goal each. Teal missed some opportunities with four behinds this quarter. Julian did well to score Teals final goal of the match as the boys were losing steam. The final score was Glebe 11.2 defeating Teal 8.7. The quote of the day came from our team manager: “At least it didn’t rain.”

 

U11 Black Versus Newtown Swans Red: Round 9

U11 Black v Newtown Swans Red

Round 9, Drummoyne Oval

The boys were back at the Power Fortress on the familiar turf of Drummoyne Oval on a cloudy day for the first game of winter.

Newtown was short of numbers so in the first quarter Oscar and Alex P turned the guernsey inside out to front up for the Swans.

The first bounce had a very familiar outcome with Toby tapping down to Damien who picked up the ball, did a blind turn out of the pack and kicked the ball long for our first of what was going to turn out to be many entries into the forward line.

Cooper gathered and gave a quick handball to Lucca to kick into full forward where Newtown were able to repel but only long enough for Luke to pick up the ball at half forward and send the ball back from where it came to get the first goal on the board.

Russell sent a message to the opposition early with a strong tackle acros half back which resulted in a holding the ball decision. The kick went forward and Mikhail got in on the action with feirce tackling to spill the ball and allow another kick forward.

Luke was all over the ground in the first quarter and he found himself with ball in hand to send a raking kick forward which found Ethan who turned and snapped to get the second goal on the scoreboard.

Out of the middle, the Power centre’s were continuing their dominance to send the ball forward again where Jonty stood strong and took a great mark at centre half forward. He passed to Cooper who under pressure slapped the ball on the boot with a shot on goal but was offline and registered a minor score.

Newtown kicked the ball in and Toby continued his dominance by gathering and kicking it back from where it came for a 3rd goal to Drummoyne for the quarter.

Jarvyse who is proving to be one of a very strong and dominant back line, tackled the Newtown player to spill the ball and with assistance from Alex, repelled the Newtown attack to find Toby in the middle who busted through the pack to get the ball to Jasper.

The ball was held in our forward half until Lucca stepped up and slotted a great goal whilst under pressure from the Swans defenders who were working overtime.

Denver stepped into the middle for the ruck and straight away picked up from where Toby left off with a great tap down which was followed up by the Newtown midfield to kick forward for only the second time in the quarter. Unfortunately, they met the resistance of Alex and Jarvyse yet again to stop the attack just before the quarter time siren.

At quarter time, Power was ahead by 26 points.

Second quarter started with a southerly wind at the backs of the power boys and a change in the ruck with Alex getting a go to display his deft touch with a clean tap down to Oscar who was running and bouncing his way out of the middle and down the wing.

Hamish presented with a great lead out of the forward line and was unluckily beaten by a bad bounce on two occassions but didn’t stop him from bottling the ball up and keeping it in our forward half.

Help arrived in the form of Mikhail who was very strong over the ball and with a quick gather farmed out a handball to Oscar who was again on the burst and with a snap across the body was able to register a point to the near side of the goals.

Newtown kick in was intercepted by Toby who pushed through two Swans to get the ball over to Alex who also beat two tackles and passed to Oscar with another snap at goal and a similar result with a second point.

The ball was kicked in again by the Newtown full back who was racking up some serious possessions thanks to the Power wayward shots. The ball went to ground and was gathered up by Lucca who pushed the ball forward to Jackson who was quickly set upon by the Newtown backs, but not before he paddled the ball out to Alex P who picked up and snapped for a great goal.

Another clearance out of the middle by Oscar, saw the familiar dash and bounce down the wing and with the wind behind him, he was confident with a shot on the run from 35m out but with the wind starting to swirl in the Power cauldron, Oscar was slightly offline for a third point of the quarter.

Oscar was to go on and kick five points for the quarter, but after another kick in from the Swans full back, and a strong run down and tackle by Damien, the ball went forward with a long kick from Denver to the top of the square. Oscar took a great contested mark right in front and finally saw him get the goal that he deserved.

The half time siren went and the Power headed into the sheds with a dominating lead.

Ethan and Jonty were good enough to help bolster the Swans numbers in the second quarter and for the third, Jarvyse and Luke turned the tops inside out to help the other side.

The Swans came out for the 3rd quarter with a great attitude and got the first centre clearance to send the ball forward for their first score on the board which was a point.

Alex took over the kick in duties from his familiar position of full back and when the ball was picked up by the Newtown player, Jonty was there to lay a strong tackle and be awarded the free for holding the ball.

Denver was back in the mix with a strong run through the middle and a penetrating kick back into the forward line where Cooper gathered off the ground and with quick hands to Hamish he snapped over his should to the goal square where Mikhail was front and centre, picked up the ball and kicked a great goal.

The centre bounce saw the ball come out of the middle again and thanks to Toby who was dominating the tap work in the ruck contest, got the ball to Ethan who kicked quickly under pressure to Cooper in the square for another goal to the Power.

Hamish and Jasper worked well together across the middle with a series of handballs which allowed Lucca to break through with the ball and kick to Denver at centre half forward who swung onto his right foot to just miss to the far side and kick a point.

The ball was kicked in and Jackson stood strong across half forward to take mark of the day and keep the pressure on the Swans. A quick kick went into the square where Ethan picked up and kicked another major for the power just before the three-quarter time siren.

In the final quarter, the Power sent Jackson, Alex, Russell and Mikhail over to the Swans to bolster their side just as the rain started to fall.

Denver was still full of run and started the final quarter strongly to kick the ball to Jonty who passed to Oscar with a great mark. Oscar played on quickly and with a disciplined kick to the top of the square, Damien picked up and dribbled the ball through for a great team goal.

Another strong clearance out of the middle saw the ball in, you guessed it, Oscar’s hands again who passed to Cooper deep in the forward pocket who took an uncontested mark on a tight angle. Cooper played on to open up the angle and sent the ball through for his second goal.

Jarvyse was proving impossible for the Swans to get past half way and after he single handedly beat three opponents, sent a clearing kick forward which was marked by the Swans who were still in the fight. They kicked forward but only to see Jarvyse mark again stopping another potential attack at the Swans goals.

Denver was starting to rack up possessions and with a great kick forward, Ethan gathered the half volley and kicked to the top of the square where Oscar who was dominating took another strong contested mark and goaled.

The final quarter was drawing to a close, but the Power were relentless with Jasper standing strong across half back, he gathered and passed to Hamish for a great mark. The ball went into the square where it was gathered by Newtown but Cooper who was hungry for another goal, tackled hard and was awarded the free kick right in front to finish with three goals for the game.

The final siren sounded with no doubt that Power was the dominant team on the day.

Goal scorers:

Luke – 1 Goal (1 Pt)
Ethan – 2 Goals (1 Pt)
Cooper – 3 Goals (1 Pt)
Toby – 1 Goal
Lucca -2 Goals (2 Pts)
Oscar – 2 Goal (5 Pts)
Alex P – 1 Goal
Mikhail – 1 Goal (1 Pt)
Denver – 1 Goal (2 Pts)
Damien – 1 Goal

U9 Teal vs Newtown Swans: Round 10

U9 Teal played Newtown Swans White at Drummoyne Oval  – while the weather was threatening, the pitch remained dry.

The boys, on instruction from the coach Moore, came out with a strong start kicking four goals in the first. Goals were shared between Ned and LT. Conor had a lot of the footy and nearly got himself some points from loose ball. Caleb came on at the latter part if the first and injected himself in to the midfield, lifting the team and getting a ton of possessions.

Ben, Otto, and Gus had huge second quarters putting more points on the board. Dylan has a lot of possessions in our half of the field. Lucas found space running out of our backline and the two Wills enjoyed getting ball in the midfield.

Lachlan C ran down Ben in the third in a beautiful tackle to get possession for his team. Finn had another strong game, also put on the opposing jersey to lend the Swans a hand. Max bagged a late goal for Teal to finish off strong game by the boys.

Otto received best on ground with Ben getting the coach’s award. Well done lads!

U11 Black vs East White – Round 10

U11 Black – Round 10

Drummoyne Oval 17.6.2017

Great to be back at Drummoyne Oval: 18 degrees, cloudy sky – but the oval in great condition to play against Easts. The boys looked on top form following their team photo.

From the first minute of the first quarter, the mighty Drummoyne Power played to win with Mikhail taking a mark followed by a clean goal. Tackling was strong and consistent. On occasions, Easts were in our half and they were challenged with good defence. Lucca was great in defence at goal with Alex again being in the right spot to defend. Tackling was strong, Toby and Luke had eaten their weeties and were unstoppable. By the end of the first quarter Cooper was on fire with a goal, followed by Luke and Denver with a point on the bell.

The team was motivated by John the runner who dashed on and off the field at impressive speed in pink bib. In the second quarter, Drummoyne Power was on top with many marks from the team and goals by Denver and Nicholas who had 2 goals in a row from his left foot. Three additional points just added to to the impressive score.

In the third quarter, the sun came out and Easts  found their game and came back with a couple of goals, DP upped the ante and push hard in defence but there was no danger of Easts pulling ahead: Three of the goals in the third quarter were from clean marks in front of goal, with DP pulling away with a convincing lead at the end of the third.

Toby swopped ruck for defence with Alex and DP fight on in the fourth. All of the team was ‘in the zone’ and every player worked hard and looked to be enjoying the game. With three subs, Anthony and John were able to rotate players. Damian kicked a long goal, Cooper took a ball in the face, bounces up and kicks a goal 30 sec later, Russell and Denver very strong tackling.

Drummoyne Power finished with a strong lead – it was a great result. The team is really improving week to week under the coaching of Anthony. As John summed up the day: it was the most complete game yet.

For me, the highlights were Brad instructing Chris as goal umpire while texting, Jackson for team sprit playing for Easts and singing the team song without the laminated sheets. Wow! These boys have made real progress.

Round 8 – Drummoyne U11 Black

Drummoyne Power U11 Black v Newtown Swans White

Round 8 Alan Davidson Oval 27.5.2017

From the first ball up the strength of the Black team was evident with Russel, Denver and Luke making a defensive wall to ensure the ball spent the majority of the quarter in the forward half, keeping Jasper and Jackson busy. Lucca was everywhere, firing a classy kick to Damien to set up Drummoyne’s first major.  The forward and centres continued to pepper to goals, keeping the Swans under pressure.  A free kick late in the quarter saw Alex drop punt a ball into the pack in front of goals, resulting in a snap goal to Lucca.

The second quarter saw Drummoyne with the majority of possession and continuing to keep the Swans defence under the hammer. Jarvyse worked tirelessly in the centre, moving the ball away from the ruck with some big clearing kicks.  Ethan’s ability to snatch the loose ball and push forward was rewarded when he combined with Luke B in a ferocious assault on the Newtown defence line, resulting in a great goal to Luke. Likewise, Russel and Hamish’s grit in the forward line created a scoring opportunity for Toby.  A crashing tackle from Jonty sparked a turnover and another push forward, and another goal to Luke.  To its credit, Newtown didn’t look like giving up, and came back late in the quarter for its first goal.

Newtown regathered during the break and gained momentum in the third. Denver was having none of it, taking a fantastic mark to keep pushing the game towards the Newtown goal. Our U10s, Yoshi and Jacob, played exceptionally well, keeping Newtown in their own half. Toby and Denver shared the ruck duties, holding their own against larger competitors. Newtown managed another goal, however, Mikail quickly answered with another goal for Drummoyne.  This quarter saw some great football skills on show from both teams.

The sun was setting as the fourth quarter began, the bright green of the scoreboard showing that Drummoyne was well in front. The boys were tired, but kept the intensity they started with.  Ethan and Lucca did not stop, relentlessly driving that ball forward with a series of short passes and good marks. Denver took a mark in front of goals and kicked his first for the day. Newtown continued to push back, but as the clock counted down, Drummoyne had done enough, taking a well-deserved win.

U9 Teal Round 8 vs Concord Giants

Tackling pressure. Two words that underscore a sensational performance by our U9s vs Concord Giants. The boys put in one of the best games of the season to make the club proud.

The first quarter saw Otto & LT dominate the midfield clearances based on the tackling efforts of Dylan & Lachie C. Some stand out highlights were Conor’s superb mark in the midfield,  Max’s efforts in the defensive packs and Angus’s decision making when kicking out from full back. Great team play from Will R to Finn to Dylan brought up the Power’s first goal. The last goal of the quarter also came from an excellent end to end team run, finishing with Tiger nailing the six points.

The second quarter starting in the same manner as the first but the intensity went up a notch. Dylan & Lachie C provided the impetus with a series of tackles that won free kicks and provided momentum to the forward line. The Giants also stepped up in a hard-fought contest. The Power’s efforts on the defensive line were brilliant with Max & Lucas leading the effort. Lucas took full opportunity from a misdirected kick out to nail another goal for the team.

Nothing let up in the third Quarter as others stepped up with the tackling pressure. Calab pulled off one of the best tackles of the day and Dylan & Lachie C continued to rack up the fantasy stats. Some great ball movement from Otto to Calab to Ben was only soured by not getting the six points. The Giants were hard at the ball and some little niggles developed across the ground. Hats off to our coaching staff who kept things under control and channelled the boys’ energy into eagerness for winning the ball.

The final quarter continued to be a hard fought contest in these two well matched sides. The Dylan & Lachie C show continued with neither letting up with their intensity. Lucas took a spectacular diving mark & Otto’s solid efforts to win the ball were amongst the highlights of another fine team effort topped off by a great second goal by Tiger.

This game has highlighted the significant development our boys have made since rising from Auskick into the juniors. Sticking together as a unit is now paying dividends along with the focus and commitment of our coaching and support staff.

Hats off to everyone and roll on the Power !!

U11 Teal Round 8

Under 11 Teal vs Newtown Swans

Round 8, Drummoyne Oval

It was another beautiful afternoon in Sydney as the Teal U-11 team were attempting to bounce back from the top of the table loss last week

Teal was fielding a full strength team and coach Brad produced yet another emotion charged pre-match address in the Drummoyne change rooms.

After an even first five minutes of the 1st term Teal started to break away through the outstanding run of Milo. He had a superb quarter kicking three goals from seven possessions and was well supported by a rampaging mid-field. Zac and Julian also had strong first terms and Teal had a big advantage in the ruck with Joseph giving his team first use of the ball at all the stoppages.

The first term finished with the score at 3 goals 3 behinds to Swans 1 point.

The second continued with Teal dominating in the centre. Luke produced his customary run and bounce making good use of the ball.  Harry C also came into the game and teamed up well with Lucas as Teal started to share the ball creating opportunities up forward. The Teal back line was as solid as a rock. Oscar, Hugo and Xabi were all tight in defence and gave nothing away while rebounding quickly.

The Swans came out in the second half with a new lease of life and started to get more of the ball with some determined tackling. They put two goals on the board however the second half of the term was all Teal. Again it was the strong mid-field that lead the way. Joseph had a great quarter and Luke, Harry and Zac continued to rack up the stats.

The third term finished with a strong lead to Power.

In a consistent display Teal finished out the game with another strong quarter of football posting another three goals. They were hard at the ball and produced some outstanding tackling.

Lucas added two goals and had a real presence on the game with some strong marking. Milo added another goal to take his tally to four for the day. Other goal scorers were Nicolas, Oliver, Max, James and Zac showing once again that Teal have many options going forward.

The final score was a convincing victory to Power.

Well done boys. A great game of football and a very even performance across all four quarters. The highlight was some great handball and sharing of the ball through the mid-field and our ability to rebound off half back which opened up opportunities for the forward line. Also great to see everyone contributing…well done.

Round 7 – Drummoyne U/11 Black V West Magpies U/11 Black

Drummoyne U11 Black V West Magpies Black

Round 7, Picken Oval

Due to the recent rain throughout Sydney, the majority of the Drummoyne games were cancelled, but fortunately enough for the U/11 Black, the skies cleared and the West Magpies opened their ground to host our boys under sunny blue skies.

The game started with Toby taking up his resident position at the centre bounce, and once again cleared the ball from the centre bounce for the boys to get first possession out of the middle.

Denver and Damien were working together early and set up some good linking play to clear the ball out of our backline where Nicholas was able to show his strengths at the bottom of the pack and get the ball out to Alex P to send the ball forward.

The first quarter saw our back half under consistent pressure from the West Magpies and without our ever reliant full back Alex on the field for the first quarter, a few players had to step up and take on the defensive responsibilities.

Ethan was effective with hard work across half back and with Russell demonstrating the hall marks of an evergreen backline player, he was busting packs and linking with the centre group of players.

This provided opportunity for Lucca and Luke to get possession and start shifting the ball forward of centre, putting the opposition under some real pressure towards the end of the quarter.

It was a strong finish to the first quarter with Cooper and Jonty working hard to hold the ball in the centre of the ground so that numbers could get around them to assist which resulted in our first scoring opportunity, finishing the quarter with a point on the board.

The second quarter was strongly contested with Russell yet again getting involved early and now with Alex taking up position in the defensive goal square, our back line was settled and provided a strong platform to send the ball forward.

Ethan was involved again as the link man running through the middle providing opportunity for Denver who stood tall all day.

Jarvyse and Lucca combined from half back with a penetrating kick into our forward line where it was strongly contested by Cooper & Jonty again bringing the ball to ground and forcing it forward, which resulted in our first goal by Mikhail who finished off nicely from the square off the back of the hard work which started across half back.

Nicholas was going from strength to strength in the middle with support from Luke where both players were relishing in the strong in and under work around the packs.

Off the back of this hard work, a clearance from the middle created opportunity for Denver to link up with Ethan, Jarvyse, Cooper, Alex P, and Jasper which again found Nicholas who was drifting forward and after repeat efforts he sent the ball through the middle for another goal on the board for the Power.

Going into half time, the boys were only down by 7 points and the momentum had started to shift in our favour.

Alex P & Jasper were doing their best to keep the ball in the forward line and when the ball managed to come out, Jackson was holding sway across half back and standing strong over the ball.

Toby was making his presence felt around the ground, not only with his deft touch at the ruck contest but also with his physicality at the ball, laying some bone crunching tackles that had a few of the opposition starting to look over their shoulder.

Denver continued his hard work around the ground and this created space for Luke, Russell, Lucca and Nicholas to link up with strong team play along the wing.

Ethan was courageous in the marking contest and across half back where he was standing tall with Jarvyse who single handed beat 3 opposition players to run out of defence and through the middle.

Mikhail, Jackson and Jarvyse worked together around the ball and Damien was injecting himself by running off half back and busting through the middle to send the ball forward providing opportunity for the small forward brigade of Cooper, Jasper and Jonty yet again.

As the boys were really starting to gather momentum, the 3 quarter time siren sounded.

Anthony pulled the boys together and urged them to continue the desperation and bravery for one last quarter effort.

The boys didn’t let him down.

Nicholas started the quarter with a new burst of energy and with a show of strength around the pack was providing multiple opportunities for our forwards to get their hands on the ball.

Lucca demonstrated the bravery that the team prides themselves on by running back with the flight of the ball and making a solid contest to bring the ball to ground.

Jarvyse was starting to read the play well off half back and busting through the lines to send the ball forward so that Toby and Denver could present and provide opportunity for the small forwards to get on the end of the footy.

Alex P was at the bottom of the pack again and with a quick clearance off half forward, allowed Lucca to get the first of his two last quarter goals.

Luke never stopped running all day, and with a brilliant chase down and tackle, was awarded a free which saw all the boys (and the side line) lift for a last big effort by the boys.

Even with another convincing goal by Lucca, time unfortunately got away from the boys and despite their best efforts; they missed out on the chocolates this time around.

Special mention goes to Nicholas for his strong work around the ground, Denver for his running and possessions all day and being the strong presence around the ground along with Toby who is really standing tall.

Luke was given a job by Anthony to be the run with player against West’s best on ground and this allowed the boys to start to get more possession and score on the board due to the nullifying effort that he provided. Alex and Russell were tremendous down back and worked hard all day to keep sending the ball forward and they were supported by all the boys who were working around the packs and at ground level all game.

Overall, it was an extremely brave effort by all the boys who are really starting to deliver against the game plan being put in place by Anthony.

Everyone provided a great contribution to the team and the game without anyone giving up on effort for the full four quarters. This is a great sign of things to come for the rest of the season.
