Round 1 Match Report – Under 16’s
Norwood 22.12 (144) def Eagles 0.4 (4)
Best Players: I. Dorian, C. Poulter, H. Dawkins, Z. Buck, T. Sheldon, B. Thomson
After trials against Norwood and Central District in which all but 3 players from our whole squad of 36 played, we went into round one against Norwood looking forward to the challenge.
Unfortunately things didn’t go to plan, Norwood played a really good brand of footy and lead by just over 10 goals at half time.
Norwood continued to dominate the game in the second half and by this stage the lads unfortunately dropped their heads and their confidence going into the game was zapped.
The positives are the lads now should have an understanding of what is required to be a good player in a good competition. We did go inside our forward 50 on 24 occasions but our kicking efficiency was below par for what this competition requires.
Indiana Dorian in Ruck, along with Caleb Poulter who did a good job at Centre Half Back, with Harrison Dawkins, Zac Buck, Tom Sheldon & Brock Thomson showing moments they can perform at this level.
We take on Sturt in round two next Sunday & I’m sure the lads will be looking to redeem themselves from the weekend loss.
