The under 18s had a good win against West Adelaide on Saturday, winning by 44 points. After an even first half where we led by just the 9 points at half time, our third quarter was very good and we kicked 5 goals 5 points to West Adelaide’s 1 point to put the game very much our way and finished 44 points in front at full time. It was great to give 7 players their first Under 18 game for the year (Todd Hoyle, Jordan McKinnon, Bailey Hann, Tyson Friend, Michael Bondarenko, Grady Armfield and Caleb Smith) and they joined Nathan Studham and Thomas Carter who were playing just their second games as well. All the boys acquitted themselves well. As for best players, Mitch Mead did very well in our midfield with 33 possessions, working all parts of the ground and using his speed and hard running to good effect, Tom Schmusch did very well on both the wing and at centre half hack, taking 10 marks and winning a lot of the ball and using it very well, Liam Martin was very good on the wing giving lots of run and carry, Jake Cook in our midfield played very well making strong tackles and winning 22 possessions, Nick Moore continued his good form both in the midfield and up forward and Jack Lukosious had another good game as our key forward kicking 4 goals and also taking 10 marks.
This week we face Norwood at home for another big challenge.
