U7 Teal v Western Suburbs Magpies
Round 4 was played at WH Wagener Oval against the Western Suburbs Magpies with the morning conditions great for footy. Building on some great efforts over the first few rounds the boys came bursting out the gates early with great passing and goal scoring efforts by Jack and Oliver in the first third. Tyler also impressed with a great left footer around the corner for his first of the day. Tyler had one of his best games so far which resulted in a Best On Ground performance!
Hayden was making sure the Power kept pressure on with some excellent work in the midfield through great use of speed and kicking to keep the ball forward. Fletcher also seemed to enjoy his time in the middle with a great mark and then finding an open teammate with a huge kick. Both boys also helped on the scoreboard today with each picking up impressive goals later in the game.
It’s clear to see that the boys are putting in at training as the effort and willingness to share the ball is great. Isaac did so well with a number of key handballs that led to scoring opportunities for the Power and also worked hard in the middle. Dylan and Hugh showed great energy as we come to expect each week and kept pressure on the Magpies all game, constantly competing for the ball. Ned did a great job for Power but it was also pleasing to see him help out the Magpies for a period as they were down on numbers. Hopefully this won’t be required often as the Magpies definitely looked a lot better with Ned leading the charge.
If this game’s performance was anything to go by it looks like this Power team will be a force all season long. Well done U7 Teal – keep up the good work and enjoy your footy!
