YEPPOON VS PANTHERS
Seeing the result of this game, just shows that if you continue to believe in your structures and put the hard-work in, a football team can turn around their season very quickly and this appears to be what Yeppoon have done. Prior to this game, Yeppoon had lost their last 7 games and were seriously down on confidence, but confidence should have been restored after this big win.
The Swans appeared to have their mojo back, with their hard running and slick ball movement stretching Panthers from the first bounce. By half time the contest was basically over with the Swans holding a 9 goal lead. In the 2nd half Yeppoon continued to inflict more pain, piling on a further 10 goals while holding the opposition to 2 goals. For the Swans Wes Hawke, Daniel Watkin and Leeland Gribble were valuable up forward, while Sam Gudgeon was the only multiple goal kicker for Panthers.
