We travelled to Pines this week to take on the 3rd placed Pythons. Fresh off our heart breaking loss to 1st placed YCW, the boys had took a lot of confidence out of that game and we started well kicking into a strong breeze and only trailing by 7 points at the first change. We put the foot down in the second quarter and slammed on 5 goals to zip to take a nice lead into the half time break. We held them well in the third quarter kicking into that strong breeze before the last quarter saw us finish off the game with a 17 point victory. Mick Gay dominated in the ruck, giving our onballers first use of the ball while Emilio Bitters and Jai Haddock were terrific down back all day. The most pleasing thing was to see the continued development of our kids, Ryan O’Dell was best on ground, Josh Halsall racked up the possessions on the wing, Lauchie Hewitt was dangerous up forward, while Broden Bird, Quinn Christie and Kalen Bird continue to find confidence playing at senior level. Fantastic day for the club with 3 wins and congratulations to Jeff and the reserves on their first win of the season.

With a trip to the Pines a team of 22 players I was confident the boys were going to put in a strong performance led by their captain, Sammy. The first quarter we were kicking against a strong wind the boys were on song, running the ball up the ground with great teamwork & determination. With Lachy at full forward as a target everything was working to plan. Without going through the whole team it was a fantastic day for all the players who have worked so hard for the entire season with little result. So with 3 games left let’s not stop at 1 win let’s finish off the year with some more

P.S.I did not tear up after the game that is just a vicarious rumour and thanks boys for the HAIRCUT Irene loves it NOT

An under manned under 19's Pines team greeted us Saturday for what ended up being a solid hit out for our boys. Pines tried hard all day however their lack of numbers allowed us to run and move the ball reasonably cleanly. It was great to gain some confidence in our ball movement and we look forward to taking on Edi-Asp this week on our home deck. A sour note on the day was the reoccurrence of a knee injury to Luke Stahl and we hope that it is only strained so we can get him back by seasons end.

A change in times saw C and D play on a Wednesday night. A fine shooting exhibition by Erica shooting 21 of our 22 goals under heavy defence by both Pines defenders. Lauren ran centre all game and Bec P showed terrific defending skills for her first game at GK.

C’s were full strength with our captain finally back. Gabby enjoyed her run at C and it was wonderful to see her decision and precision passing again. Dee and Sophie were awesome again. Both Sophie and Ainslie deserve their promotions to C grade and have slotted in perfectly. After a strong 1st qtr we let our opponents back in during the 2nd. Gabby then showed her versatility @ GA with Riss showing off her juggling skills gave us a fine win.

We took a while to warm up in B with a 10am start and an even first quarter. Great defence in the 2nd had every player creating turnovers. Meg and Eliza were relentless in the defensive goal circle and the 2nd proved to be our winning quarter. The second half was only one goal difference as Pines threw everything at us.

Again a slow start in A as Pines put pressure on us. Alex put some booming passes from GD into the goalers but they couldn’t finish off. A couple of injuries meant we had to lift and we did, winning the third qtr. In a hard fought match the girls never gave up but the Pines ran out winners.

We say Bon Voyage to Tessie Cooper as she goes overseas but this will then give an opportunity to another player to be promoted to A grade in time for finals.
