Our Round 3 clash against West Adelaide on the Thursday before Easter gave the group a new experience playing underlights at City Mazda Stadium.
Our starts for the first two rounds have been something the lads have struggled with and Round 3 was a little bit the same with Westies having 10 inside 50’s & kicking 6 goals to our 4 entries and us not kicking a goal. We even up the ledger over the next three quarters with inside 50’s, however our efficiency going into our forward line was a little wayward and we were unable to make up any ground with Westies running out victors by a comfortable margin.
The lads are having a go & are improving, however our foot skills are not at a level that we could be proud of. Zac Buck, Harrison Dawkins & Fergus Agnew worked tirelessly thru the midfield, Caleb Poulter showed some class up forward & across half back with Indiana Dorian acquitting himself in Ruck & kicking a goal in the last Quarter from Centre Half Back. Zeke Scott played a role down back & thru the midfield.
This week we take on Centrals out at Elizabeth & we look forward to keep on working towards playing four quarters of football.
