The Under 18’s had a good win against Norwood on Saturday, running out comfortable winners by 68 points. It was a good contested match with Norwood keeping us on our toes all game. Although leading by 32 points at three quarter time, it was pleasing that in the last quarter we were able to kick 6 goals to one goal and extend the margin to the 68 points. We were a little inefficient for 3 quarters and did not use the ball well at times, mainly through the pressure Norwood applied but in the last quarter we played much more direct and efficient football and got a good result. We had many players who found a lot of the football and Cooper Gaffney was one of the those, Jack Lukosius’ 10 marks and 6 goals were very good, Tyson Friend and Isaac Moller also worked hard in our forward line with 4 and 3 goals apiece, and Sam Michael and Jake Weidemann both did well in our midfield.
This week we complete our minor round with a game against Central Districts at Football Park on Saturday starting at 6pm. Last time we played them we had a nail biter that went right down to the wire so we know it will be a good contest for us.
