Best Players: R. Bruce, J. Miller, I. Brill, J. McCann, C. Smith, S. McNeilly
The Under 18s lost a low scoring game in tough conditions at Maughan Thiem Hyundai Oval on Saturday, losing 7 goals straight to the Panthers’ 8 goals 12 points. This week, Michael Frederick, Jack McCann, and Brodie Arriola all played their first games of under 18 football. Our straight kicking was a feature but South Adelaide were a bit too strong in the middle and generated many more scoring opportunities than us.
Our endeavour was very good and we kept at it for the whole game which was a real feature this week. Our defence, led by Ryan Bruce and Isaac Brill were resolute and strong, with Caleb Smith, Jack McCann and Shaun McNeilly also being good players back there, Jarrod Miler worked tirelessly on the ball and up forward kicking 4 goals and Jackson Mead worked very hard in our mid field.
This week we play Glenelg at Gliderol Stadium in Sunday at 10am and we are looking forward to a big clash.
