We headed to West Adelaide for our 2nd Friday night game of the year, with the intention to bring pressure from the 1st bounce.

Our pressure and contested footy through the mids was there early and this gave our forwards first look at the footy, two F50 stoppage goals from Rowe gave us a good lead at quarter time.
The game become a arm wrestle with 2 goals each in the second quarter, goals to Rowe and Tsitas giving us a handy lead at half time.
The third quarter seen us play the game in our forward half of the ground and it was good to see Sam Lowson kick his first goal for the football club, which was quickly followed by his second on the 3 quarter time siren. Wanting to play for 120 mins we talked at 3/4 time about keeping pressure around the ball going into the last quarter.
Our ability to run out the game and sustain pressure for all 4 quarters is really pleasing at the moment, finishing the game with 30 scoring shots and +37 with the inside 50 count.
Jame Tsitas lead the way with Joe Sinor in the middle of ground.  James Rowe (5 goals) and Sam Lowson (4 goals) looked dangerous all night and Pierce Seymour played well behind the footy.  It was pleasing to have 8 goal scorers on the night.
Congratulations to Ben Jungfer playing his 1st game for the football club. Ben had some great moments during the night and played his role well.
Well done to Brad Graham and the Reserves team on the win Friday night, which allows the boys to have a double chance in the up coming finals, also to Shane Reardon and the U18’s on another strong performance
In what will be our last Home & Away game of the season, we look forward to travelling to Centrals and facing a team that has hit some good form in the 2nd half of the year.
Looking forward to seeing our supporters this Saturday to cheer on the boys at Centrals.
