Straight From The Sauce – Round 8

Sam Jacobs reviews Round 8 vs Norwood

What a great win it was against Norwood at the Parade. Right from the outset the players executed the plan that the coaches put together through the week, credit must go to the coaching group too as when you’re playing the undefeated team you need to plan well, and we were able to do that.

We really embrace the opportunity to take on the best teams at their home decks in hostile environments and the players have shown they are unfazed by performing really strongly. It was a 4-quarter effort and that’s what we are most proud of, we won all the quarters and once again were able to finish the game strongly.

Adam D’Aloia, Josh Morris, Connor Ballenden and James Rowe were all at their dominant best and led the way. There were some great individual moments throughout the game, and I said the boy’s post-game that everyone had an impact at some stage throughout which is important to how we want to play.

We are in the midst of playing all the top 5 teams currently and this week we have another big game against Centrals who were able to get us at their home deck, so we have plenty of motivation to return serve this weekend.

See you all Saturday at Maughan Thiem Kia Oval.
