Off to Jubilee Park to play YCW with the youngest side we have fielded in a many years. We needed to play smart and use our leg speed and try and stay away from the big bodied YCW outfit. The boys followed instruction to the letter in the first quarter running hard and exposing the defending premiers for pace. We took a 20 point lead into quarter time and there was a real buzz from the playing group. A forward line of Kalen Bird, Hewitt, O’Dell and Christie (All under 19’s) were exposing the big YCW backs, the question was could we keep it going. We stayed in front for the remainder of the day, holding onto a 7 point lead going into the last quarter. It an epic last quarter YCW kicked a goal to take their first lead at the 25 minute mark of the last quarter and we couldn’t get the lead back. Amazing effort from our young team, it was just a shame we couldn’t get reward for the effort put in. Will Goosey did a fantastic job holding down full back for us, Mick Gay won his battle with Eames, our midfield led by Joel and Warwick Miller won their battle with a strong YCW midfield and Jai Haddock reinforced his position as the best small defender in the comp beating Minchington all day. Really promising signs for the future from a very young, inexperienced doggie outfit.

 Big day on Saturday against one of the power house teams of YCW. With the side thrown into disarray on Saturday morning by players pulling out players & not ringing to say they can’t play it was always going to be a tough day and a tough day it was. With the boys not scoring a goal for the day wasn’t the the main thing it was more about how the 16 boys who battled their GUTS out for the entire second half & not giving up and played it out to the final siren. So we forget about that game and move on to our Grand Final against Pines who have only won two games, this is a big day for the club with the seniors playing good footy the Reserves need to lift and have a good win on Saturday.

A rain affected track greeted us at Jubilee Park for a slogging encounter against YC. We started the day with 21 soldiers and as the season wears on we are forced to play players who are carrying injuries and who shouldn't be out there. In true doggies spirit this group of boys continue to battle on through what is a difficult period at the club. We need to stick together when faced with adversity and I couldn't be prouder of this young group of pups.

LESSON:  Tie tarps to the outside of the fence if the wind is coming from that way.

Great defence by Katie and Pippa in D gave us opportunities. When Naomi went to centre her drives to the top of the circle assisted to get feeds into Erica and Bec and we won the 2nd. In a low scoring affair we put in a terrific defensive game. Now to build on our offence.

Dee was awesome at GK in C. It was definitely a day for tall defenders with a rebound opportunity at every goal attempt and Dee didn’t disappoint. When Sophie joined her in the 2nd they made a great team. Scores were level at the last break however we couldn’t take a trick. Even Alex’s long bombs in the swirling wind couldn’t help us. Down by 3.

B’s were raring to get on with the game but in a blink we were down 7 and had a lot of work to do. A better 2nd with Michelle in defence put us somewhat back in the game. However the tight defence of the Stonekittens made it hard work for the attack end. Not our best outing this year.

Then in A we did the same to YC.  A blinder of a first quarter gave us a 7 goal lead at quarter time and plenty of confidence. Then on came tall GS for Stonekittens which changed the whole game. Alex should be proud of her game at GK contesting every pass and winning a few. Sarah was accurate shooting in the bad conditions and the mid court was a hard fought battle. It was de ja vu going down by 2 after leading all game, as we did in Round 9.

We need to get our mojo back against Pines.
