It was pleasing to see the lads get some reward for their efforts over the last few weeks in which we have been improving but we just haven’t been able to string four quarters of footy together.
In warm conditions the game began tightly with Glenelg opening up a 4 point lead at quarter time, which stretched out to 16 points early in the second. To our lads credit they hung in there & responded by kicking the next 5 unanswered goals to lead by 16 Points at the main break.
Going out after half time the lads were confident they could maintain our intensity for the second half. A couple of early goals in the third gave the lads a little more confidence in their playing ability. Our pressure when Glenelg had the ball was our best for the year thus far with 65 tackles for the game and our ball usage which was also at a season high was a feature.
In a good team effort with 9 goal kickers, Harrison Dawkins, Kynan Kenny who kicked 4 goals, Lachlan Jones, Caleb Poulter, Ben Cannizzaro with 5 Goals & Ryan Williams at Centre Half Back all performed well.
With one game to go we look forward to carrying on our form into this week’s game against North Adelaide at home.
