Balmain Tigers Vs Southern Power
Southern Power 10.9-69
The magoos had a good win over the boys from the shire on Saturday in a tightly contested game. We played very well in patches running and moving the ball quickly. Southo scored in the first few minutes of the game but that was the only time they held the lead in the contest as the boys in the middle dominated in the first quarter. Big Hughsey was winning the majority of the contests in the ruck and our on ballers in Joey, Milky and Tommo set up and kicked a few goals.
Up by 4 goals at quarter time and going against the breeze we took the foot of the pedal in the second quarter. The Power kicked a couple and were back in the contest.
After a much needed breather the boys had a red hot crack and we kicked on. Wilby grabbed a double and the the old fella in the forward pocket with no teeth was having a red hot dip.
Going into the last quarter against the breeze and up by four goals. Sutho could sniff a win but our boys stood up and nullified every Power raid into their forward line. Young Betts in his first game of Australian Rules was great in the backline doing all the team things and throwing himself in every contest.
Best players for the day Milky, Betts, Wilby, Rhys, Joey
Coaches award goes to Daz for that kick that dribbled through the goal square and stopped on the line. Skills coach will need to have a word with you tomorrow night.
We hung on for a tough first up win and sung the song nice and loud!
Lots of positives to come out of the win and a few things we need to work on
this week boys see you Tuesday at Glover st!
