Under 16’s Match Report Rd 3
After two good wins, the lads were keen to take on the Challenge of Centrals this week, who were also undefeated.
With a very good start, we were able to kick 8 goals in the first quarter aided by a slight breeze, while holding Centrals to no score. The game was being played on our terms. By half time our lead was extended to 78 points.
To Centrals credit they came out after half time & won the third quarter 3 goals to 1. We were able to finish the game off by kicking 6 goals to 1, to win by 98 points.
A much more even Team performance this week from the lads resulting in 9 goal kickers, with Luke Beecken kicking 6, Jake Puzzuoli 4 plus Kysaiah Pickett, Cooper Hayes & Steven Osborne each kicked 2.
As mentioned the pleasing part was a better team performance across the day with the focus on doing things better when we didn’t have the footy in our hands resulting in good pressure to turn the ball over in which our forwards were able to reap some reward.
This week we take on West Adelaide at Richmond under lights on Thursday before Easter.
