Drummoyne Power U/7 Black v Newtown Swans
A glorious autumn morning greeted Drummoyne Power U7s (Black) as they took on the Newtown Swans at Alan Davidson Oval in Alexandria.
Drummoyne began the game full of running, with Frank and Jack setting the tone early. There was great sharing of possession, with all that handballing work at training certainly paying dividends.
The midfield of Isaac, Zac and Eli was functioning well, and getting good ball to the forward line.
The goals began to come, and a penetrating run by Oscar F resulted in the first Power goal.
Archie was also proving elusive, and kicked a great goal around his body.
At the start of the second term, the Power continued to push forward, with Eli doing good work, even with the defence in his face, and Isaac full of running.
In the third term, the forward line showed terrific form, with all of the boys sharing the ball around, and Bryce capped off his match with a great goal. Ethan got well involved with several kicks and handballs to his team mates.
A highlight of the match was the number of marks taken, with Archie and Oscar F leading the way.
The Newtown Swans were at times elusive, and the Power defence was made to work hard. Special mention goes to Frank, Ethan, Bryce and Zac for their efforts in defence during the course of the match.
Coach Lucas was as amazed as the rest of us by the off-season improvement in the boys, and awarded today’s best on ground to Jack for his awesome running and all-round involvement.
A terrific first outing for Under 7s, played in good spirit, and we all headed home to escape the beating sun.
