Straight From The Sauce – Round 9

Sam Jacobs reviews Round 9 vs Central District

First of all, well done to Shane and the Reserves boys, the form has been tracking in the right way, so its nice to get another win and put them just outside the 5. For the League team, disappointing loss to Centrals. In what was a close encounter throughout the whole game we weren’t at the level with our fundamentals consistently throughout the day. I thought both teams missed chances, but they were just able to take theirs more than us.

Connor Ballenden was brilliant again on his way to 10 marks and 3 goals, Zane Williams worked tirelessly throughout the game and gave us plenty of run through the midfield and wings, Jarrod Redden was a pillar in the ruck in giving our mids first use and linking up through the corridor., and Adam D’Aloia continued on his strong year with another good performance in the midfield, highlighted by a game high 10 clearances.

One more game before the bye Vs Adelaide at Adelaide Oval, this is really important for us to keep our spot amongst the top 5 and also for the boys to get some experience playing on Adelaide Oval. The support was fantastic on the weekend, and we look forward to seeing you all on the weekend.
