Today we took on South Croydon at home in perfect conditions for a good hard game of footy. Usually when we play South Croydon the games have been played at a high level with both teams very evenly match and today’s game was no different.

Our boys started the game off really well with us kicking the first goal, but for a 6 minute period in the middle of the first quarter the boys switched off, they didn’t stick to our team structures and South Croydon made us pay for it as they kicked 4 goals in this period. To the boys credit they re-focused and took control of the quarter and kicked the next 3 goals to go into the quarter time break 1 point up.

The second quarter was a real arm wrestle as neither side gave up an inch, and even though neither team scored a goal in the second quarter the game was played at a high level. The second half is when the boys turned up the heat and played some of there best footy I have seen them play for a long time.

We ran off our lines and took the game on with quick ball movement, our aggression and hard tackling was fantastic as we put South Croydon under a lot of pressure. It was a well deserved win by the boys and a great TEAM performance to build from.
