U7 Black v Glebe
Jubilee Oval, Round 7
On a beautiful day for footy, it was standing room only to watch the mighty Drummoyne Power U7 Black take on the Glebe Greyhounds at Jubilee Oval. The opening bounce saw Koji, with the first of many booming clearing kicks out of midfield, kickstart proceedings as he and the Drummoyne Power dominated early. Starting the game up front, Hayden was leading well and finding the ball but just couldn’t get the radar working. Archie was the first to register a major with a clever snap from the pocket. Sophia was keeping things tight down back with some great defence and worked incredibly hard as the Greyhounds finished the term strongly.
Coach Camille was pleased with the enthusiasm and effort in the first term and encouraged the players to let the ball do the work in the second. Oscar H took it upon himself to implement the coach’s instructions with an accomplished display in the midfield as he racked up a number of marks and disposals. Bryce worked tirelessly upfront as he tried hard to finish off the work of his midfielders. At the back, Will showed his speed as he pushed high up the ground in support of his midfielders and was quick to retreat to limit the opportunities for the Greyhound forwards. As the siren sounded for the end of the second term, the match was evenly poised as the team enthusiastically huddled around Coach Camille.
The third term went from end-to-end as each team struggled to assert their ascendancy. Charlotte was reliable in defence as she relentlessly pressured the Greyhound forward line into error. Archie continued where he left off in the first and second terms as he terrorized the opposition midfield by dominating the contested possession and providing great support to his defence and crisp service to his forward line. In the end, the might of Drummoyne snuck home in what was an exciting display of Auskick and a great demonstration of teamwork.
While there were a number of strong performances today, Archie J proved to be the difference and was rewarded with Best on Ground. Congratulations Archie and well played Drummoyne U7 Black.
