U9 Silver v Newtown Gold
16 May 2015, Picken Oval
A tough game – but one that got better as it went on! The fields at Picken Oval were very long and it was hard to get the ball from one end to the other. The defence was under siege in the first half, but the game evened up in the second with a high intensity last quarter.
Q1: The defence of Miles E, Hamish, Jasper V and Xabi were kept under a lot of pressure but laid some good tackles.
Q2: This time it was the turn of Gabriel, Jacob, Jasper C, Alex T and Alex C to feel the heat in defence, but they weathered it well.
Q3: The team started to win more ball; notable plays by Miles M, Angus and Gabriel.
Q4: An exciting quarter for the spectators, as the team piled on and kept up the pressure throughout. Excellent contributions by every single player on the field – so consider yourselves each named here! A standout quarter by Fionn. Well done Sam for winning some ball.
