Round 2 twilight game saw us take on Glenelg at ACH Group Stadium.

In tricky conditions, the first term saw the home team kick with the wind, and with Glenelg’s wayward kicking at goal, it allowed us an opportunity in the first quarter to only be down by 5 points which I thought was a good result heading into the second quarter.

The second quarter was a real arm wrestle with Glenelg having several opportunities as we went in 1 point up in half time. Once again in the third quarter we battled hard but some turnover saw Glenelg kick 2 late goals which saw the margin go out by 3 goals.

The last quarter seen Glenelg apply score board pressure and their dominance showed on the score board.

I was proud of how we fought the game out but our connection and synergy with the group is not quite where we need it. We will continue to work on both our defence and offence to get this right.

Congratulations to Mitch Hardie on playing his first game for the footy club which means 9 players have already debuted in 2021. Our better players on the night were Jack Hayes, Angus Poole, Ben Jungfer and Joey Sinor.

We look forward to getting back to Woodville Oval and taking on the Crows who had a very good victory against West Adelaide in what will be a tough game.
