In what was our biggest challenge of the U16 Program thus far we were outplayed by better opposition and opposition who really wanted to get their hands on the footy first.
Our first 5 minutes was encouraging and in patches we were ok but we just couldn’t sustain the pressure Sturt was placing on us and they were more efficient going forward. Our inablility to find an opposition player was very evident.
By half time Sturt had opened up a 12 goal lead and the game was unsalvageable. The second half was unfortunately much the same and Sturt ran out winners by a big margin. Lachie McNeil, Lachlan Hoile, Jamie Coff, Harry Schoenberg & Reece Jaensch battled hard for most of the day. With four individual goal kickers we really struggled to find an avenue to the big sticks.
The beauty of football is that there is next week and we hope that the lads have learnt from that effort as Glenelg who are sitting on top of the ladder will be good opposition to test ourselves again.
