Round 13 – Mitiamo v Pyramid Hill

I’m not sure there was too much disappointment that the U/18’s didn’t have a game, especially on a day where the frost was so severe one could have been forgiven for thinking they had woken up at Falls Creek,  The sun did, however, greet us upon arrival at Mitiamo as the Reserves took to the ground.  The end result unfortunately being Mitiamo snatching the 4 four points in the final seconds of the game.  The Seniors game was a close knit affair until late in the 4th term where we were able to grab a couple of quick goals allowing us to run out victors by 12 points.

The boys had a disappointing day at the office.  A  terrible start had Mitiamo kicking 4 goals to nothing at quarter time.

It was a much better 2nd half from the boys, even able to get 1 point ahead in the last quarter but sadly Mitiamo kicked the last goal of the game to win it.
Better players were Dylan “spiritual leader” Tonkin who had another good captains game, Brad “age has no limits” Fawcett did his thing down in the backline, Lewis “high flying superstar” played as a key target up forward setting up key plays.
Today’s loss has put us back in the pack and has shown a few worrying signs, blokes will have to commit to the club and take care of themselves on and off the field.

Final Scores:  Pyramid Hill 6.8.44 lost to Mitiamo 7.7.49

A must win clash against the Superoos beckoned and the boys were keen to show the form that we produced in the early parts of the season.  It was a scrappy first quarter and we trailed by 5 points with Mitiamo’s inaccuracy keeping us in the game.  Miti smashed us in the clearances in the second term and increased their margin to 17 points at the main break. After half time though we came out firing and the boys turned it on, moving the ball fluently and applying quality pressure around the contest.  It was a tough slog in the final term but we came out on top in yet another close finish.  Fitzy had the ball on a string kicking 5 goals in a best on ground performance whilst Stevie Gunther just did what Stevie Gunther does!
