The Willoughby side came out hard scoring two quick goals to get a flying start before the cannons fought back through hard work and a couple of long range bombs to end the first quarter within range of the Willoughby side.
The 2nd qtr started similar to the first with Willoughby again scoring quickly before the cannon’s through accurate goal kicking of 4 straight had the sides going goal for goal seeing Willoughby take a small lead into half time.
The 3rd quarter had the cannons under attack from Willoughby with Cannons pushing hard out of defence to repel the Willoughby forwards .
Despite the determined effort of cannons the opposition had gained too much momentum and we were unable to pull back their lead before the final siren with Willoughby running out winners 13:9 to the cannons 7:5.
Even though the boys were defeated they showed their grit by fighting hard all the way to the final siren and were right in the game until late in the 3rd qtr.
