The under 18s had a very good win on Saturday against Sturt winning 8 goals 13 points to 5 goals 11 points. It was a tough game with both teams competing hard as the low scores suggest and after an even 1st half we held a 1 point lead going into half time. A very good third quarter allowed us to kick 3 goals 5 points whilst holding Sturt goal less and then both teams kicked 2 goals in the last quarter to enable us to run out 20 point victors. We had a lot of good players and Jacob Pedler and Jarrod Miller both gave us a lot of drive in our midfield. Bailey Hann’s 3 goals up forward were very important in the context of a low scoring game, Sam Michael gave us plenty of drive in Ruck, Jacob Wehr was very effective on his wing and our defence was led very well by our two key positions in Chris Schwarz and Sam Mckay, ably supported by Isaac brill and Liam Martin. Also Luke McCauley played his first game with us for the year and did well across half back with 9 marks and 17 possessions.
This week we take on North Adelaide at home and they are in a rich vein of form having won 5 of their last 6 games so it will be another tough match.
