Best Players: I. Brill, J. Weidemann, B. Hann, C. Smith, T. Hoyle, H. Hawkins
Goal Kickers: S. Taylor 2, T. Hoyle, S. Michael
The Under 18s lost our first game for the season on Saturday, going down to North by 21 points. It was a tough contested game with scoring for both sides proving difficult. Down three goals at three quarter time we attacked relentlessly in the last quarter but North ultimately proved too strong running out winners 8 goals 7 points to 4 goals 10 points. Only kicking one goal in each quarter was a big issue for us.
Continuing the trend of recent weeks we welcomed Rhys Iliou into the team for his first Under 18 game and he did some nice things for us on his wing. Isaac Brill led our defence very well and Jake Weidemann was a presence on the ball and in our defence and up forward. Bailey Hann did some hard work in the midfield, Caleb Smith defended well and Todd Hoyle and Harrison Hawkins tried very hard in our midfield.
This week we face the undefeated Panthers at Hickinbotham Oval on Sunday so this week we will be getting ourselves organised for a big performance to meet that challenge.
