U9 white round 1

Under 9 White Round 1

U9 White v Glebe Hounds

Round 1, Five Dock Park

The boys were reunited at Five Dock Park for the first game of the season.

It was also the first game under the new partial contact rules and the Hounds from Glebe gave us a baptism of fire.

In Q1, Harry kicked a great clearing kick, Oscar S took a fine mark in the centres, stand-in Josh was strong in defence as was Finn.  Isaac and Toby were keen tacklers.

In Q2, Harrison fought hard for the ball in the centres, Luke executed some great clearing kicks from the backline and was good in defence generally.  Oliver gave 100% in defence.

In Q3 the boys closed Glebe down letting in only 2 behinds.  Oscar D had some strong kicks and was an effective tackler.  Hugo was tenacious on the ball as usual.

In Q4 the hounds kept coming.  The Power were solid in response.  Luke made a good run in the forward line.  Harrison tackled well.  Finn took 2 good marks.

Conclusion

All in all it was a challenging match against tough opposition with the boys displaying good team spirit on the day.

Great effort boys and lets look forward to the next game.
