U8 Black v Moore Park Tigers
Round 5, Drummoyne Oval
Having been on the road for our first four matches we finally made it back to home territory. Drummoyne Oval was pristine as the team bust through the banner onto a smoke filled ground. The atmosphere was thick with a smoky haze but I can assure you this was not coming from the BBQ where bacon, egg and sausages sizzled in the sunshine. Preparations for the next bushfire season were being made across the Sydney Basin overnight and the net result was a thick blanket of smoke welcoming the city to a new day.
The competition from the Moore Park Tigers was intense and the Power were up for the challenge! Play was intense in every session of play with the ball moving across all areas of the pitch. The Power were at the breakdown rapidly and moved the ball around with a combination of kicks and thoughtful passing. Our marking gets better each week and there were some tremendous catches taken by Tiger, Ashton and Callum P. Everyone threw themselves into the match with great performances from Zac, Brody, Henry, Ehsan, Max and Rubi.
Our goal scorers on the day were Callum P, Riley, Tiger, Ben and Ashton.
Xavier was our player of the round because of his determination and persistence in defence and at the breakdown.
The contest was very close and the team finished the day with a rousing rendition of the Club song.
Well done, team.
We have the Power to Rule!
