The Under 18s had a good win against Norwood on Saturday winning by 62 points. The win was set up by a very good first quarter where, after kicking with the aid of a strong breeze, we kicked 8 goals 2 points and held Norwood scoreless. In the second quarter when Norwood had the breeze we were able to hold them to 2 goals and kick 2 ourselves to go in at half time in a very comfortable position which we then maintained for the game. Pleasingly we again had the opportunity to give 2 players, Rhyan Fitzpatrick and Ari Rigney their first under 18 games for the club as well as bring 2 players up from the under 16s in Kysiah Pickett and Jackson Mead. All of them made a contribution to the win. Our best players included Todd Hoyle in just his second under 18 game, who did very well in our midfield and he was ably supported by Jake Cook, Nick Moore and Joe Simpson, Isaac Brill led a strong defence and Kysiah Pickett showed his class with four goals moving between the wing and half forward.
This week we kick off the triple header at Maughan Thiem Hyundai Oval with an early 9.25am start against North Adelaide, a challenge which we are very much looking forward to.
