The Under 18s returned to the winners list on Saturday with a good win against Glenelg. We set up the match with a very strong first quarter kicking 8 goals to just 1 from the Bays and then continued that with an 8 goal to zero second quarter. The second half was good as well and we ran out 135 point winners. As expected we had many good players across the ground and Matt Longbottom led the way with his 37 disposals and 11 tackles, Dom Pratico with his 6 goals led a potent forward line, Nick Moore was strong in the midfield as well as in defence, Bailey Hann and Ben Goold, gave us a lot of drive from their wings, Sam McKay was very strong and direct in defence and Mitch Mead (3 goals) and Nathan Studham (4 goals) both did well on the ball with as well as contributing up forward.
It was great to give another two Under 16s their first games of Under 18s football and Trent Burgoyne and Deacon Braun both did well, Trent on the wing and Deacon in defence.
This week we have another great challenge against Central District at My Money House Oval Elizabeth on Friday night
