The Under 18s finished our minor round with a loss, losing to Central Districts by 21 points at Football Park on Saturday night. We started well kicking the first 3 goals for the game but Centrals hit back late in the quarter for 3 of their own. The second quarter was a similar tale with both sides kicking 5 goals and we held a one point lead at half time. Centrals got a break on us in the third quarter kicking 5 goals and restricting us to just the 2 and although the last quarter shows both teams kicked 5 goals apiece, the reality was Centrals were good enough to kick the first 5 goals of the quarter to seal the game and whilst we kicked our goals later in the quarter, but the three quarter time margin was maintained.
Jake Weidemann and Jarrod Miller played well and they were assisted by Tyson Friend, Nick Moore, Grady Armfield and Tom Schmusch.
To this week and we start our finals campaign with a Second Semi Final against South Adelaide, with a spot in the Grand Final on offer for the winner. It will be a tough game as South have had a very good season and accounted for us in both meetings with them during the minor round but we will be doing our best to put on a strong performance. The game will be played at Football Park on Saturday 2 September commencing at 2.10pm.
