Our trip down the road to Calivil saw our Under 18’s come home with a convincing win with Raids kicking the last goal before the final siren. The Reserves continued with their winning streak but unfortunately the Seniors started slowly and we were forced to play catch up in a game where the reigning Premiers outplayed us and simply would not allow us to take control of the game. This week all teams will have to be on their toes and firing from the beginning as we take on YCW Eagles at Mitchell Park.
With a plethora of unavailability’s the boys were down to the bare 18 this week. However that didn’t stop us playing an exceptional brand of football. From the first bounce we were up and about and showed great control and skills in terrific conditions at Calivil. With a six goal buffer at the first change we continued to increase the margin at every break. And we did not take the foot off the pedal at all throughout the match. The final margin, 151 points in a brilliant team performance led by an unbelievable 15 goals to Reece Blake and if he had of kicked straight he could have been in the twenties…

The reserves have really found some good form, up against Calivil this weekend it was a very tough contest. First quarter both teams only scored a goal each, setting up a tough task for the game and at half time the boys trailed by 1 point. To their credit the team showed true character and kicked away in the second half, winning by 32 points.
Better players for the day: Matt “new chick in the nest” Scott was welcomed back in the side, kicking 3 well-deserved goals, Chris “the better Drisco” Driscoll was also welcomed back in the side, providing defensive acts for the team, Matt “interception king” Moon did his role down back again, showing everyone he is the best Moon. Lastly, the prestigious Ned award went to Levi “batting above me average” Southern who played full back and just wanted to show off in front of the missus. #upthe2’s #2’saroundthe1’s #uptheneds

The Demons were quick to fire out of the blocks kicking the first four goals and it was bleak signs for the boys, trailing by 27 points half way through the first term. However, we steadied the ship and kicked three unanswered goals to close the margin to 8 points at the first change. The second term was a tight tussle with both teams trading goal for goal and the margin was under a goal as both sides headed inside for the long break. Calivil showed their class during the third term and the boys were unable to apply the pressure that had been the catalyst for our victories in the first six rounds. Our ball use wasn’t great and the Demons made the most of our turnovers – controlling the remainder of the game and running out 35 point winners. A disappointing result, but one we will learn from and be better because of as we look forward to our clash with the Maiden Gully YCW Eagles next week.
