After a sub standard pre season and only 1 pre season game we arrived at Kedron on Friday night to kick start our season.
With the ground in good nick both sides played scrappy footy with neither gaining the upper hand. With only 1 goal kicked it was hard to tell if we were on song as we looked slow and at times timid towards the footy.
We seemed to click into gear and piled on 5 unanswered goals to take a handy 42 point lead into the main break. To my annoyance an all in brawl erupted and we had a player red carded to leave us 1 down for the second half. With a lot of trash talk in the rooms I was hoping we would bring it on the field but it was Kedron who started to show a bit of fight and to our disgust, out scored us 3 goals to 2 in the third term.
Taking a healthy lead into the last we asked for the boys to finish off the good work of the first half. 9 scoring shots to 4 was a pleasing result but with some players getting ahead of themselves it was frustrating that we could not have done better.
A healthy 57 point win was a pleasant way to start the season but we all know there is a lot more that can be done and that starts with training 2 nights a week with intensity.
Better players : Dickfos, Grant, Van Haaften, Soutter, Cantlin.
Thank you to all volunteers who helped out on Friday night. Without your continued help we could not enjoy the thrill of running around each week.
A big thank you to Sandgate Football Club for permitting 3 players to come across and help out on the night.
