The Under 18’s had a solid win against Glenelg on Saturday winning by 74 points. It was a tight contest for most of the day but we were able to have a strong final quarter, kicking seven goals to one.
We had quite a few good players and Lachie McNeil continued his good form in our midfield with some good clearance work and contested ball winning and he was well supported by Trent Burgoyne playing in the middle, using his speed to break across lines. Grady Armfield was very strong at centre half forward taking some very good contested marks and putting us inside 50 regularly, Jake Tiller was also a busy forward, Caleb Smith did well in his first go on the wing this season and Shaun McNeilly was a good defender.
This week there is a competition bye and then we return with a game against Norwood at Coopers Stadium in what we know will be a tough match.
