The Under 18s had a come from behind win against Glenelg at Gliderol Stadium on Sunday, winning 15 goals 10 points to Glenelg’s 11 goals 7 points. Down by 9 points at half time, the players responded well in the second half kicking 9 goals to Glenelg’s 3 to run out winners by 27 points. It was good to get back to the winners circle after losing our last 2 and the players did well to play some great team footy throughout the match, but particularly in the last half.
We had many good players and our Captain for the day, Jackson Mead, led the way with his attack on the ball and his skills in our midfield, Jack McCann did a great job as a defender and wingman, Marty Frederick continued his good form as a defender and sparked us further when he went into the middle after half time, as did Jarrod Miller with another good display on the ball and up forward with 2 goals, Harry Schoenberg was strong in his aerial work and had a great second half in particular, Isaac Brill was composed in the back half and won some important clearances on the ball, and Dom Pratico was our most dangerous forward with 4 goals.
This week we play North Adelaide at Maughan Thiem Hyundai Stadium and we will prepare well for another tough match against the Roosters.
