Under 9 Teal v Concord Giants Sheedy
Round One, Goddard Oval, Concord
A hot day made for a sweaty match. Really good start to the season with the boys all keen to get into it.
Great team effort with all players contributing throughout the match. Here’s a summary of each player’s game:
Declan – got a few good taps and intercepted a kick.
Nick – Today’s player of the day with 1 goal ( plus one scored from the mids!)
Tom C – first goal kicked in quarter 1 after taking a great mark, good handballs and teamwork
Ethan D – terrific at marking the other team’s top player, one great goal and at least one behind. With his height and agility, Ethan is a great addition to team Teal.
Sean – Good handball pass to team mate, took a strong mark in the 3rd quarter.
Harry – Worked hard throughout the game. Special mention made of Harry’s tackling ability and hunger for the ball. Harry has no fear.
Ethan N – A goal in the first quarter but plenty of handballs to team mates showing great team work. Some good tackles too. A fine all round game and strong in each area.
Tom N – took a great mark and came so close to a goal. Got in position and found the spaces.
Kaya – Really good effort for his first ever game of footy. Showed some flair with a good pick up in the mids. Always looking for the ball with arms up and ready.
Lucas – some good handballs and a strong kick out of the backs. Really good in defence in the first quarter stopping plenty.
Milan – very focused and in amongst the action. a couple of good touches.
Scott – always in the spaces ready for the ball. Took a top mark and made a few good tackles. Kicked a goal while in traffic in the last quarter (pic attached of Scott’s goal going through the posts!)
A very evenly matched game. Special mention for the young umpire who did a terrific job of confidently running the game and educating the boys.
