Round 14 saw us up against a top team in Oakleigh on a very windy day. It was a slow and scrappy start to the game and we afforded them a 9 goal lead. Sarah,Nina and Mikaela in defence attempted to slow down the swift Oakleigh attack. Midcourt Angela,Mikaela and Phoebe moved the ball quickly in an attempt to keep ahead of their defenders. With the wind playing havoc with some passes and their midcourt defence solid we struggled at times. An increase in the accuracy of our passes saw much improved second and third quarters, during which we outscored Oakleigh. Our last quarter wasn’t our best and Oakleigh prevailed 35-18. Erin 10 goals, Abby 6, Melissa 2. Best on court was Angela for her determination to win the ball and Abby for showing that attackers can create defensive pressure which result in turnovers.
The 19s were coming off a very competitive loss to the dingoes on their turf and this week hosted Doveton. The fellas have stuck together well and came away with a resounding victory in the blustery conditions 73-13. Best on the day were Smith, Eckersall, Grmrotic, Reed, Blair & Griffin
Seniors & Ressies
Both had the bye after a good victory by the ressies and a massive last quarter fight back by the seniors to go down by 7 points. As a group we should be encouraged by our showing against Chelsea but we will have to find another gear to match Beena at their ground this Saturday.
