In what was our best performance of the season our Seniors defeated Dodges Ferry by 60 points at Anzac Park last week. It was a clash of two undefeated in form teams and both sides were aware of the importance.
The start of the game was played at a frantic pace with both sides throwing themselves at the footy, although we kicked the first goal it was Dodges who took early control booting the next 4. Our guys worked hard in the latter part of the quarter to kick 3 of our own to be only 1 point down at the first break. At the break we spoke about making sure our performance was consistent right through the game and we responded with an 8 goal to 2 second quarter to take in a handy 34 point half time lead.
We knew they would come out tough after the break so we had to make sure we were able soak that up and keep the pressure on the scoreboard and we did that kickeing 3 goals while holing them goalless and took a 53 point lead to the final break. In the last quarter we continued our hard work kicking 4 goals to 3 to run out 10 goal winners.
In a great team performance Gavin Quirk was fantastic through the middle, Tim Bracken was unbelievable up forward taking one of the best marks ever taken! Luke Goodsell was great down back and Kurt Baker gathered a lot of it either up forward or in the midfield.
This week we face the great challenge of travelling to Boyer to take on New Norfolk, our guys must be focused on doing the right things if we’re to be competitive.
