Round 11 – BL Serpentine v Pyramid Hill

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

With the U/18’s being the only team to secure a win last week against BL Serpentine it’s probably a week we want to put behind us and quickly move on from.  As the old saying goes “Don’t look back, you’re not going that way”!

Under 18s
The boys were slow to get going on a very chilly morning at Serpentine. It took until the 12 minute mark of the first term to kick our first goal, but from this point onwards our pressure was high, our ball use was good and we were able to take control of the game increasing the margin to 34 points at the main break. The second half was an even battle but we held the momentum and refused to let Serp back into the game. Justyn Sawyer again showed how dangerous he can be with his run and carry whilst our midfield and defence held up beautifully thanks to Jordan Godfrey, Coen Cooper and Matt Farrell – 54 point victors!

Final Scores: Pyramid Hill 9.14.68 defeated BL Serpentine 2.2.14
Goals: R. Blake 2, E. Caburnay 2, A. Cunningham 1, J. Godfrey 1, D. Goulding 1, L. Ross 1, M. Swiney 1.
Brett Hercus Transport Award: J. Sawyer. Millers Ag Supplies Award: J. Godfrey. Pyramid Bakery Cafe Award: C. Cooper. Special Award: E. Caburnay. Others: M. Farrell, K. Shelley, Z. Dingwall, M. Swiney, D. Goulding.

Reserves
The boys are in a bit down patch after a disappointing performance against Serp. We were good early but lack consistency over the whole 4 quarters and ended up losing by 42 points.

Better players were Ryan “the quicket Rhino on the planet” Watson who has cemented his position down back, Jack “douchbag” Douch had another great game, Lachie “Christmas Carol” Caroll was effective on the wing. We need to stay positive and good things will come.

Final Scores: Pyramid Hill 2.6.18 lost to BL Serpentine 9.6.60
Goals: A. Harper 1, C. Milroy 1.
Pony Award: J. Hickmott. Egan Taylor Award: R. Watson. National Hotel Award: J. Douch. Victoria Hotel Award: L. Carroll. Club Award: T. McKerrow. Others: J. Moon, C. Milroy, M. Stewart, L. Southern.

Seniors
The Doggies started well in our must win clash against Serpentine, kicking four goals to none in the first quarter and showing great poise, patience and match awareness with ball in hand. The Bears bounced back in the second term and reduced the margin to just 4 points at half time and it was well and truly game on. The third quarter was an even battle with many stoppages and great pressure applied by both sides as we took a 5 point lead into the final change. Unfortunately, as has happened too often recently, one quarter has been our downfall and we didn’t fire a shot in the last quarter conceding…12 goals.

Final Scores: Pyramid Hill 8.7.55 lost to BL Serpentine 17.16.118
