We welcomed Mayne to our home ditch in what was a do or die semi final. With the focus on team structures we headed out quietly confident of holding off the other Tigers.
It was Mayne who jumped early kicking 2 goals before we had a chance to catch our breath. We quickly settled down to slowly crawl our way back into the game. By the end of the quarter we had 10 scoring shots which was pleasing to see.
We got away to a great start in the second to totally dominate play for the quarter. Kicking 8 goals to nil we were able to kill off the contest but knew Mayne would come out breathing fire so we had to hold our nerve and keep persisting. 20 scoring shots to half time was something the boys could hang their hat on.
The second half was a non event as both sides played the game in good spirits. Apart from a melee there was no sniping by either side which was a credit to both sides discipline.
We finished off well to earn a crack at a prelim final which is thoroughly
deserved. We should hold no fear next week if we bring this style to the
table once again.
With a light week on the track we shall focus on what we did right for 4 quarters.
