Round 14: Girls, Under 19s lead the way

  • Posted on Thu 31 of July

    Another tough Saturday for our two senior sides against Aquinas, with the ones outclassed in the wet by 71 points, while the reserves couldn’t quite convert on the opportunities they had with the scoring end in their eight-point loss.

    Things started poorly for the seniors - conceding seven goals to nil in the first term – and didn’t get any better from there on in. There were some solid contributors on the day nonetheless, with skipper Shauny Field presenting hard all day, while Dec O’Connor won many admirers with his shut down role. Mitch Pearson was rock solid in his best game for the year in defence, while Jordy O’Brien and Liam Toohey were prominent on the stats sheet as usual.

    The twos were in the game right up to the final siren, but couldn’t quite breakthrough on the scoreboard to kick a winning score. Brenton Anderson was dominant all around the ground in the ruck, while Matt Steinar and Simon Marchitto were strong targets up forward.

    In the other grades, the previously undefeated Clubbies suffered their first loss for the season against NOBS/St Pats under lights of Friday night, while the Under 19s turned in perhaps their most impressive performance for the year with a convincing 55-point win over Northern Blues.

    The girls also got themselves back onto the winners’ list with a thrilling two-point win; Em Flavel was the star with three majors in a BOG showing.
