With another 5 Changes, including 2 players who were playing their first game the players were really looking forward to playing their first game of the season at home against South.
In windy conditions we began well and had the first three goals on the board. By quarter time we had a two goal advantage and the challenge was to continue on with our good work for the remaining of the game. During the second South fought back and took a narrow lead into Half Time
Our second halves have provided us with our better footy this year & the lads were confident going out after half time. In what was a tight contest after half time the lads battled out the game quite well and I was much happier with our overall effort for the game this week, but we unfortunately couldn’t get the job done and went down by 14 points. Harrison Dawkins was instrumental in the midfield, whilst Lachie Jones gave us some drive from defence, Fergus Agnew and Zac Buck were amongst it most of the day and Brock Thompson & Jack O’Neil showed some good signs from defence as well.
This week we travel to Glenelg to build on Round 5’s effort.
