Round 18 update:
In front of our sponsors we put in a very ordinary performance on Saturday against Winchelsea to lose both the seniors and reserves. Poor kicking for goal and some undisciplined acts also didn’t help the cause as the Blues’ big men dominated all day to win by 6 goals. Good players in a game best forgotten were Josh Rees, Cody Watson, Rob Chamberlain and Ben Bolton. The undermanned and disappointing reserves team found hit hard to keep up with Winchelsea and lost by 38 points. Best players were Adam Bird, Tim Dahl and Scott Anderson.
The best news of the day was the first win for U/18s since round 2. The boys beat Modewarre by 13 points to give coach John Stefanovski his first win as a coach. Best on ground for us was Jake Catchpole. The U/14s also sneaked into the finals with a great 14 point win over Drysdale in a low scoring match. Best players was T. Davis-Grainger. Both the U/12s and U/10s had losses in their final games for the season.
In netball news, the A grade had a big loss to Winchelsea by 53 goals as they continue to suffer at the hands of the injury gods. Best on court was youngster Brooke Nowell. B grade’s chase for finals action came to an end with a 25 goal loss. Best was Donna Warwick. Fortunately, all other grades had a win. C grade won by 6 goals (best Ellen Anderson), D grade won by 10 goals (best Jennifer Crabtree) as did the U/15s (best Logan Jozipovic). The U/13s won by 35 goals (best Elizabeth Andrews) while the U/17s had a bye.
Thanks also to our valued sponsors that attended our annual Sponsors’ Day.
Next week we finish off the senior’s home and away season with a Presidents’ Day on Sunday where we will be hearing some stories from a couple of East Geelong/Eastern Suburbs Presidents, as well as having a few beers on a pleasant Sunday afternoon.
Other upcoming days include Junior Presentation Night on Friday 5 September and Senior Presentation Night on Saturday 20 September.
