U6 Drummoyne Power v Moore Park Tigers
Round 3, Saturday 22 April, Bat and Ball Oval
It was glorious sunny Autumn morning in Sydney as the Drummoyne Power under 6s travelled to the home of the Moore Park Tigers. With the week off for Easter the previous week it was evident that some players had consumed plenty of chocolate eggs as everyone was full of energy and ready to go. Koji “I had 10,000 eggs” was everywhere and probably burnt through half of those eggs during the game covering all ends of the ground seemingly simultaneously.
Harry and Archie R were solid in defence and did well shutting down the opposition forwards with their defensive work and kicking out after points.
Archie J showed his full bag of tricks twisting and turning in the forward line kicking a few goals and was well supported by Oscar F who also kicked a couple.
Sebastian used his height advantage for the ruck taps with plenty of taps to his rovers and followed up with his own hard work providing options to support his team mates.
No one missed the week off more than Oscar H. He certainly didn’t go missing on the field and was involved in everything. A lot of great runs from the centre and down the wings with a few bounces too!
Oscar H was awarded player of the day for his full game effort but special mention to the way he shared the ball around with his team mates with his kicking and hand passing skills.
All up a great effort by all!
Saturday had Drummoyne Power under 6s up against a very good Moore Park Tigers team.
We had James D winning tip offs, Ned L controlling the middle of the park creating plenty of opportunities for Lachlan C who scored 3 really good goals. Benjamin G and Jack C were enormous in defence continually stopping the well drilled Tigers forward line.
PLAY OF THE QUARTER: Benjamin G with a massive clearance kick, Ned L took a superb mark with a handball sent Lucas S on a long weaving run down field he handballed to Lachlan C who finished the play off with a Goal!
It was all Jack C and Isaac O who dominated this quarter from the mid field. Jack C scored a massive goal kicking it from halfway. Could be goal of the season!
With Isaac O and Jack C winning tip offs and providing great service from the mid field the always involved and razor sharp Ned L managed to kick 2 goals against strong defence. Lachlan C was strong in defence and his clearance kicks were a highlight.
PLAY OF THE QUARTER: Plenty of highlights this quarter but Jack C ‘s goal from halfway was great to watch!!
By the third quarter the boys were running, kicking and linking together really well. Lachlan C, Jack C and Isaac O were causing all sorts of problems for the tigers defence and were well supported in the midfield by Lucas S with his long runs. Benjamin G and Ned L were huge in defence and we had James D providing big clearance kicks.
PLAY OF THE QUARTER: James D clearance kick, Lucas S with a long run to midfield where he found Jack C who side stepped, gigged and bounced his way through the defence to find Isaac O and with a tremendous kick finished the play with a goal!
PLAYER OF THE MATCH: NED L. He was enormous for the team and shared the ball around so everyone was involved. He kicked, Marked and defended really well.
The involvement from all the boys was great to watch. Well played everyone!
