Seaford came to the kennel on Saturday, our last meeting at Seaford saw us get run over in the last five minutes for a gut wrenching narrow loss. We were keen to make amends for that day and started well with Jackson Calder looking dangerous up forward and the midfield again winning plenty of ball. We finished the first quarter with a slight advantage with our young guys making a real impact, Josh Halsall was finding plenty of ball on the wing, Lauchie Hewitt was showing glimpses of his talent up forward while Kalen and Broden Bird’s 2nd and 3rd efforts were a real feature. The second quarter we really put them to the sword kicking 9 goals to 2, Jacko was unstoppable up forward and had 8 to half time. The second half we refused to stop and come away with a resounding 74 point victory. Mick Gay was great all day in the ruck, Jacko finished with 9 goals and Emilio Bitters showed his value to the team rebounding off half back at will. Great four quarter effort and the reward was 4 points, well done.

Nick Martin was seriously knocked out at the end of the second quarter and was taken from the field in an ambulance, we can let everyone know he was released from hospital that night and looks like making a full recovery.

Hard day at the office for the reserves on Saturday against Seaford. After a promising start to the game and with some inaccurate kicking in the first quarter the boys were down at the end of the first quarter by a couple of kicks. The next two quarters were not our best we have played over the last 5 or 6 weeks and we went into the last quarter 6 goals down. But again the boys dug deep and played the game out to the end. To all the boys I know it is really frustrating that we have not had a win but I know if we keep focused and keep training hard it will come.

A super competitive start had us travelling well up until half time. Our attack on the ball was good and that enabled us get our hands on the footy and create repeat scoring opportunity's.
Unfortunately we weren't able to take advantage of those chances and Seaford over powered us in the second half. Our first half showed that when we play to our plan we can match it with the stronger teams. We need to persist with working on areas of improvement and the next five weeks will allow us to do so.

D’s started with a new line up and took a while to settle. Excellent defence by Pippa, Erica and Katie but we turned the ball over too many times. In a low scoring affair we were unable to make up the quarter time margin.

C’s on the other hand took control from the first centre pass. Captain Foondog pulled a hammy playing women’s footy a few weeks ago and hasn’t been able to take the court. As the story goes she took possession of the footy, completed a blind turn and a don’t argue fend off against her opponent before kicking an inside out barrel from the centre of the ground to kick her first goal ever.  But back to netball, Alex and Larissa starred in goals with Ains, Ez, Mel and Kyaa controlling the midcourt with steady passing and strong drives. Good team win.

Not a lot of luck our way in B with a few players out this week. Melissa had to back up after a full game in C when Chris did her calf 2 minutes into the game. The defence end of coach, Michelle, Eliza and Mon worked overtime but we just couldn’t get the ball into our goalers! It was like the Tigerettes had extension arms and we kept finding them.  Not our best outing this year.

The A game was as expected between 3rd and 4th placed teams, an even contest throughout. Smart play by CandACE in GA gave us an advantage in attack and with brilliant defence by Alex and Caitlin we had many opportunities to score.  Tess x 2, Vicki and Georgia at WD were the difference.
