After two weeks of being close with honourable losses we came up against a determine red hot North. They jumped us with a strong breeze at X Convenience Oval, kicking 4 in the first quarter and we were able to stem the flow with one of our own in the first. The second we were able to get another 2 majors and go into half time 8 points down and confident we would compete for the last half.
We were totally outplayed by a fast and coordinated North, as they kicked 5 in Q3 and 2 in Q4 to run away with a 50 point win. We could only manage 2 points from half time and struggled to get any offensive flow going whilst defending for basically 2 quarters straight.
A disappointing way to head to the bye week but gives an opportunity to review and adjust. As a group we move on quickly to ensure we bounce back quickly when we take on South Adelaide at Flinders Uni Stadium in 2 week’s time.
