Coach: David Main
The lockdown break came at a good time for us which allowed our group to recover physically. We welcomed back Jeremy Monckton (first game of the year) Heath Briggs, (second game for the year) Brady White and Ash Williams. Our boys were a little rusty at the start but halfway through the first quarter we started playing our Cobra brand of footy. The backs were rock solid all day led well by Tim Payne and Ash Williams with Heath Briggs mopping up and driving the ball forward. Our midfield was gifted with some great ruck work by Billy Thomas and Matt Ryan. Chris Johnson and Robbie Hill were again dominant around the ground. Our forwards connected really well. Unfortunately our accuracy in front of goal was disappointing but was great to see players looking to find a player in a better position to have a shot on goal. Nathan Gardner was fantastic with nine goals as was Ryan Spierings and Travis Woodfield who scored four goals each. Both had great games while Jaxson Briggs finished with three goals. Overall an encouraging start to the second half of the season.
Coach: Michael Palmer
We welcomed Luke Foreman and Locci Carr to our club. Luke Foreman is another prodigal son. We are very pleased to have him back as he will be a great addition to our playing list. Locci Carr started his time with us with a bang kicking four goals in an encouraging debut. Travis Ramsdale our evergreen veteran came back re-charged to have a best on ground performance. He was relentless in the mid field and obviously enjoyed the mid-season break. Matt Ferguson figured prominently as did Gus De Costa in the mid field. Josh Wilson was productive in the forward line with two goals. Lyndon Banting and Sean Wilson led the defence and helped to restrict Dalyston with their strength and mobility.
Thirds - U18s
Coach: Michael Ryan
At Dalyston, a well organized club with nice facilities; our players were swapped to various position on the ground throughout the game and they adapted well. Riley Potter had a good game which included a tough mark on the wing. Dakoda Bolton marked well forward and finished off with seven goals. His defensive work as a forward was a feature of his game. Duoth Jock showed his class in defense, mid and back as did Trishane Desilva. Nick Pastras was excellent including setting up attacking plays moving forward. Good team effort with many good tackles laid. Coach Michael Ryan would have been very happy with nine goal kickers, showing a good team effort.
Coach: James Perkins
It was great to have footy back. This week we travelled to Dalyston, Again the boys started well getting out to a 27 point lead by quarter time and continued to play some good team football and come out comfortable winners by 99 points. Jackson Ratten, Caelan Addis were great down back Ashton Hermanus found plenty of the football along with Bailey Brougham and gave the forwards plenty of supply. Credit to Dalyston who fought the game out and never stopped trying despite the result. Max McDermott was prominent with four goals but coach James Perkins would be happy with ten goal kickers for the game
