FREELING FOOTBALL CLUB
Saturday 26th April v South Gawler
This week, Anzac Weekend, we take on South Gawler at home. Our boy sare keen to redeem themselves after failing to take control last week against Willaston. Come on out and enjoy the day with the Under 13's starting the day at 8:30am.
Round 1 - Willaston at home
The boys came up against a bigger Willaston side and got off to a slow start. A better effort on the second half saw us contest a bit more. Dale Nixon and Connor Reid made an impact around stoppages, while Clem Heath provided a good target in the ruck. Hayden Amery, Sam Daff and Brodie Robinson all put in sold efforts. Best : Dale Nixon, Connor Reid, Hayden Amery, Clem Heath, Brodie Robinson and Sam Daff.

A tough assignment first game out against a Willaston side that proved much fitter and bigger bodied. The boys gave their all for all four quarters, and can hold their heads high. Our Senior Colts are a young squad and continued training and positive efforts will get results on the field. Best : Adam Byster, Jay Meaney, Corey Coleman, Ned Staehr and Adam Haseldine.

A slow start to the game gave Willaston too big a lead to chase down. The boys seemed to have lost their run in numbers, far from the previous trial games, however they managed to finish off the last quarter well, outscoring the opposition. We will continue to work and improve our finishing. Best : Ben Haseldine, Bill Ahrens, Kevin Johnson, Luke Shanahan and Tom Carmichael.

A bad start to the game put us behind and chasing for the rest of the game. We can’t afford to give the opposition the sort of space we gave Willaston. It was good to see the boys dig in and work their way back, giving themselves a chance, fighting to trail by 14 early in the last quarter, but we were not able to go on with the job and were over run, which is disappointing. We can definitely improve on the result and effort, and need to finish off 4 quarters stronger. Best : Hayden Robinson, Adam Langford, Beau Jarman, Joel Vaneveld and Scott Williams.
